Despite hauling in one of the top defensive back hauls in the modern recruiting era as part of the 2018 class, the Texas Longhorns already have their eyes on some of the next cycle’s top secondary prospects.
On Sunday, Richmond Fort Bend Bush cornerback Erick Young joined that bunch, as he became the latest to pick up an offer from the Longhorns.

A rising four-star prospect, Young now holds 12 total offers, as Texas becomes the latest to join an invitation list that also includes Oregon, UCLA, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and TCU, among others.
A physical corner with ideal size at 6’1, 195 pounds, Young is now the fourth 2019 cornerback target to pick up a Texas offer, joining Bellflower (Cali.) St. John Bosco product Chris Steele, Baton Rouge (La.) Dunham School prospect Derek Stinkly and Houston Dekaney’s Marcus Banks.
Although his recruitment remains young, Young’s Crystal Ball currently favors LSU, as the Tigers own three of his four projections to date.
A Houston-area prospect, Young is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 241 player, No. 21 cornerback and the No. 30 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
