Once again, Tom Herman and his staff have their eye on the Peach State.
On Wednesday, the Texas Longhorns put offers on the table Loganville (Ga.) Grayson teammates — and also teammates of Texas cornerback pledge Kenyatta Watson II — Noah Collins and Phil Mafah.

Texas now joins Baylor as the only reported offers for both, Collins and Mafah.
A 6’5, 205-pound weak-side defensive end prospect in the 2020 class, Collins is credited with two tackles and one tackle for loss throughout his junior campaign.
Mafah, a 2021 running back, recorded 89 carries for 720 yards and 10 touchdowns. Though Baylor is his lone offer, Mafah has made a pair of unofficial visits to Clemson as well, visiting the Tigers on Sept. 15 and Nov. 24.
Collins and Mafah now adding Texas offers marks just the latest example of Herman and his staff aiming to make their presence felt in Georgia, and more specifically, at powerhouse Loganville Grayson. In addition to Collins and Mafa, and of course, Watson, the Longhorns have offers out to Grayson products in Alabama weak-side defensive end commit Kevin Harris, Auburn outside linebacker pledge Owen Pappoe, Texas A&M wide receiver commit Kenyon Jackson, and three-star 2020 wide receiver Ryan King.
Thus far, Texas’ efforts in Georgia have netted two commitments, as Buford running back Derrian Brown joins Watson as four-star additions to the Longhorns 2019 class.
