One of the top 2020 prospects in the nation is now officially on the Texas Longhorns’ radar.
On Monday, the Longhorns put an offer on the table for elite Aledo running back and Oklahoma pledge Jase McClellan, he announced on Twitter.
A four-star prospect, McClellan is now up to 18 offers and has seen his recruitment continue to gain plenty of steam since committing to Oklahoma in late July.
Alabama, Arkansas, Geogai, Miami, Michigan, TCU and Texas A&M are among the other programs that have extended offers, and Texas now joins that mix.
McClellan was originally scheduled to visit Austin this weekend for the Longhorns junior day, but wasn’t able to make it due to illness, per EJ Holland of 247Sports.
Arguably the top talent in Texas in the 2020 class, McClellan rushed for 1,599 yards and 28 touchdowns on 203 attempts as a sophomore, despite missing six games.
The 5’9.5, 194-pound prospect is ranked as the nation’s No. 12 player, No. 2 running back and the No. 1 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
