An elite in-state prospect made a surprise visit to the Forty Acres today, as Bellaire Episcopal wide receiver Jaylen Waddle unofficially visited Texas while in Austin to train.
A four-star prospect, Waddle is arguably the Longhorns most significant remaining target at the position after already holding pledges from Brennan Eagles, Al’vonte Woodard and Rondale Moore.
Texas still has plenty of work to do if the staff hopes to ultimately secure his commitment, though, as Texas A&M is currently his top option. Florida State and Oregon are firmly in the mix, as well.
A U.S. Army All-American, Waddle hauled in 48 receptions for 1,382 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior, along with four scores as a rusher and five more in the return game.
Waddle is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 66 player, the No. 12 wide receiver and the No. 7 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
