The Texas Longhorns threw their name into the mix with an elite out-of state prospect on Friday by extending an offer to Amite (La.) defensive tackle Ishmael Sopsher.
A five-star talent, Sopsher is the No. 2-ranked prospect in the entire 2019 class and not surprisingly, some of the nation’s powerhouse programs are already in pursuit of his services. To date, Sopsher holds 19 offers, including invitations from LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Auburn, Clemson and Florida, among others.
The home-state Tigers currently hold three of his four Crystal Ball projections.
At 6-foot-5, 279 pounds, Sopsher is the nation’s top-ranked defensive tackle and the No. 1 prospect in Louisiana, per 247Sports Composite.
