For the second time in as many days, the Texas Longhorns have added a preferred walk-on to the mix, as Houston Strake Jesuit inside linebacker Jett Bush announced his commitment to Tom Herman’s program on Friday.

A former New Mexico State commit, Bush holds 11 offers with invitations stemming from Air Force, Army, Incarnate Word, and Harvard, among others.

As a senior, the 6’2, 220-pound Bush amassed 157 total tackles and seven sacks.

A two-star prospect, Bush is ranked as the nation’s No. 3,057 player, No. 145 inside linebacker, and as the No. 455 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite. 247Sports has Bush ranked a bit higher, slotting his as the nation’s No. 132 inside linebacker and as the No. 373 player in Texas.

Bush now joins Austin Westlake safety Doak Wilson and Austin Westlake linebacker Jake Ehlinger, the younger brother of Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, to join the Texas program as a preferred walk-on within the past week.
