The Texas Longhorns remain in the mix with numerous key offensive line targets, but that isn’t preventing offers from rolling out to some of the state’s top prospects.
The latest example of that came on Wednesday evening as the ‘Horns officially jumped into the mix with Katy Taylor offensive tackle Andrew Coker.
A former Florida pledge, Coker re-opened his recruitment on Jan. 29 and has since seen several more offers roll in, including invitations from Georgia, Kansas State, Houston, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and now Texas, among others.
Of the 14 schools currently with an offer out to Coker, Texas A&M is considered the heavy favorite, evident by the Aggies owning 89 percent of his Crystal Ball projections. As seen in his Tweet, Texas is Coker’s ‘childhood favorite,’ but for the Longhorns to make their impact felt in his recruitment, Texas will have to play catch-up and get the Houston-area standout on campus in the near future.
Now standing at 6-foot-5.5, 310 pounds after shredding nearly 40 pounds and re-shaping his frame, Coker is ranked as the nation’s No. 491 player, the No. 48 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 59 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
