The coveted Katy prospect is down to 10 schools and the Longhorns are still well within the mix.

Katy product Deondrick Glass is among the very best running back prospects in the country and on Friday, he announced his final 10 schools.

Not surprisingly, the Texas Longhorns survived the cut, as did Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas A&M, Alabama, Oklahoma State, USC, TCU, Michigan and Georgia.

Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Michigan State and Oregon were among the schools that were excluded from Glass’ top group.

As far as the Longhorns are concerned, Glass visited Texas for junior day and the ‘Horns are considered to be among the frontrunners for the Houston-area star’s services, along with Alabama and Georgia. However, despite the mutual interest between Glass and the ‘Horns, elite Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy running backs Trey Sanders and Noah Cain remain the priorities at the position, with Cain considered as a Texas lean.

That said, Glass would certainly be a welcomed addition if he ultimately elects to stay close to home. 247Sports Greg Powers provided an evaluation on what makes Glass such a prized prospect:

“Glass plays for a program that has been tradition-rich with producing D1-level running backs and he is next in line and may end up being the best of a strong bunch. He runs with a good center of gravity and balance and that makes him hard to easily knock off of his feet. He will make yardage after first contact. He can pick up the tough yardage in the middle of the field, but has the speed and power to make long-distance plays as well.”

As a junior, Glass notched 216 carries for 1,690 yards and 26 touchdowns, which managed to serve as a regression from his stellar sophomore campaign, in which he totaled 184 carries for 1,912 yards and 30 touchdowns.

Glass is ranked as the nation’s No. 17 running back and the No. 29 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite. Expect him to take his time with the process.
