One of the nation’s premier talents is now on the Texas Longhorns radar.
On Monday, Texas defensive coordinator Todd Orlando traveled out west to visit 5-star 2020 Upland (Calif.) outside linebacker Justin Flowe, and the visit ended with the top-ranked talent in California netting a Longhorns offer.

A top-five prospect nationally, Flowe’s Texas offer added to a lengthy list that includes now shortage of high-profile programs, including Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC, UCLA, Oregon, LSU, Penn State and Washington, just to name a few.
As a sophomore, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound talent totaled 119 tackles in 10 games, as well as six sacks and nine tackles for loss.
With Texas now in pursuit of that productivity, Flowe becomes just the second 2020 outside linebacker prospect with a Longhorns offer, and furthermore, he’s now the highest-ranked recruit with a Texas offer thus far, regardless of position.
Flowe is ranked as the nation’s No. 4 player and the No. 2 outside linebacker, per 247Sports.
