Texas offers fast-rising 3-star SDE Jamarcus Chatman

The ‘Horns have some catching up to do in the coveted edge rusher’s recruitment.

One of the nation’s most sought after targets now has the eyes of Texas on him, as Tom Herman and the Longhorns offered three-star strong-side defensive end Jamarcus Chatman Wednesday evening.

To say Chatman’s services are in high demand would be putting it lightly. To date, the Rome (Ga.) product holds 45 total offers and is starting to really see his recruitment gain significant steam with some of the nation’s more known programs.

In the last two weeks alone, the tremendously fast-rising edge rusher has seen offers flood in from Baylor, West Virginia, Tennessee, Connecticut, Iowa, Florida State, Maryland, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, USC, Pittsburgh and now Texas, along with a pair of unofficial visits to Alabama and Clemson, though neither powerhouse has offered yet.

With solid size at 6’3, 261 pounds and a mean streak in the trenches, Chatman is seemingly the ideal linemen in Herman and Todd Orlando’s defense, so expect the staff to at least try to get the out-of-state target on campus at some point in the next couple months.

Chatman ranks as the nation’s No. 356 player, No. 14 strong-side defensive end and the No. 33 player in Georgia, per 247Sports Composite.
