Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns aren’t done gauging the market on linebackers just yet, as the staff offered Reno (NV) inside linebacker Brandon Kaho on Wednesday afternoon.

A four-star prospect, Kaho holds 12 total offers, including invitations from Alabama, Oregon, UCLA, Notre Dame, USC and Washington, among others. The ‘Horns would certainly be playing catch-up after offering so late in the process, but it’s clear the staff is still interested in adding another prospect at the position.
Texas currently holds a pair of linebacker pledges in the form of IMG Academy (Fla.) product Ayodele Adeoye and Byron Hobbs out of Fort Worth Eastern Hills. Prized Arp safety DeMarvion Overshown projects as a linebacker, as well.
Kaho now joins Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas product Nik Bonitto as the only two uncommitted linebacker prospects currently holding a Texas offer, although Kaho’s 247Sports profile does list him as a ‘soft’ pledge to BYU.
At 6-foot-3, 232 pounds, Kaho is ranked as the nation’s No. 136 player, No. 6 inside linebacker and the No. 4 player in Nevada, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
