A loaded Texas Longhorns wide receiver recruiting haul may set set to add yet another member in the coming days.

On Wednesday, former TCU pledge and Melissa product Kennedy Lewis, who reopened his recruitment in mid-October just days after an official visit to Texas for the Baylor game, announced on Twitter that he will choose between the Longhorns, Horned Frogs, and Florida Gators on Friday.

Almost immediately after his visit, the buzz was that an outright flip from TCU was the most likely scenario. Of course, that didn’t prove to be the case, but just days later, Lewis did decommit from Gary Patterson’s program, and the Longhorns have taken complete control of the moment from that point forward.

That momentum continued over the weekend, as Lewis returned to the Forty Acres for yet another visit for the West Virginia game.

Lewis’ Crystal Ball currently favors Texas with the Longhorns owning each of his seven projections. If those projections come to fruition, Lewis will join a loaded Longhorns wide receiver haul, as Texas already holds pledges from four-star prospects Jordan Whittington, Jake Smith, Demariyon Houston, and Marcus Washington.

Four-star athlete Peyton Powell may very well end up playing wide out as well, though his initial opportunity will come at quarterback. Not to mention, Texas is still very much in the mix, if not the favorite for top-ranked athlete Bru McCoy, who aims to play both sides of the ball as a wide receiver and a hybrid edge rusher.

If the Longhorns were to land the 6’3, 190-pound Lewis on Friday, he would add yet another talented option to what’s shaping up to be an embarrassment of riches at receiver in the coming years.

A three-star prospect, Lewis is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 97 wide receiver and as the No. 96 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
