Just days after picking up a pledge from coveted Arizona tight end Brayden Liebrock, the Texas Longhorns are a finalist for yet another tight end, as Temple standout Jared Wiley named Tom Herman’s program in his top three on Thursday, along with Houston and Missouri.
With five offers to date, Wiley’s list cut left SMU and Texas State on the outside looking in.
A three-star prospect ranked as the nation’s No. 43 tight end prospect, Wiley has visited Texas on multiple occasions this offseason. In fact, shortly after his trip to Austin for the Longhorns spring game, there was some belief that Wiley would side with Texas, but of course, he prolonged the process a bit.
Instead, several weeks later, the Longhorns are one of three teams still in the mix and currently considered the frontrunner, with Texas owning each of Wiley’s six Crystal Ball projections.
