Texas remains in needs of talent across the defensive line this cycle and on Thursday, key target and Katy product Moro Ojomo named the Longhorns in his top seven.
Ojomo also included Texas A&M, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU and Miami.
A three-star prospect out of the Houston area, Ojomo has compiled 23 offers to date and his mid-January cut left programs such as Houston, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and Tennessee on the outside looking in, among others.
As far as the teams still in the mix are concerned, the Aggies are the perceived team to beat, as Texas A&M holds 90 percent of Ojomo’s Crystal Ball projections, but Ojomo hasn’t publicly stated anything that points to Texas A&M as the team to beat. The Longhorns hold Ojomo’s other projection and with just one 2018 defensive line addition this cycle — Keondre Coburn, who is still entertaining other interests — Texas can certainly benefit from a recruiting upset here.
Much like many of the other programs still being considered, Texas jumped into the mix late with a Dec. 4 offer. Ojomo will make an official visit to Austin in January.
A 6’3, 275-pound prospect, Ojomo is ranked as the nation’s No. 501 player, No. 36 defensive tackle and the No. 67 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
