The Texas Longhorns continue to inch their way towards potentially landing one of the more versatile linebackers in all the land.
Friday afternoon, elite Dallas Highland Park outside linebacker Prince Dorbah decided to cut his list of schools down to a top five, and with no surprise, the Horns are heavily in the mix. Next to UT, Dorbah also named Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.
He released the news on Twitter with a pretty innovative video, created by @GeauxEdits.

The four-star talent has toured the Forty Acres multiple times, with his most recent trip coming in mid-January, and to date, Texas owns each of his three Crystal Ball projections. Dorbah detailed to BON earlier this month that Horns’ on-field success last season plays a large in why he has such high interest in taking his talents to Texas.
“I thought they had a solid season overall. Just bouncing back from not really having a good season the year before,” Dorbah said. “You know just coming back to win the Sugar Bowl. Just building off of that, that’s something that you want to build off of and hopefully end up winning a national championship.”
“Obviously, them being able to prove everyone wrong, and being able to come back and show everyone that Texas has great football play and that starts with a great recruiting class,” Dorbah added. “They’ve been getting a lot of good guys so far, so they should continue to get better out there.”
Dorbah also expressed to BON that of the numerous coaches contacting him, Texas offensive coordinator Tim Beck and defensive line coach Oscar Giles are the two recruiting him the hardest.
“I talk to the defensive line coach, coach Giles,” Dorbah said. “He’s always texting me 24/7, asking how I’m doing and checking on me. So either him, coach Herman or coach Beck.”
A 6’2, 210-pound product, Dorbah fits the mold of your modern-day hybrid edge rusher, and he’s as productive as any prospect at his position across the country. As a junior, Dorbah’s efforts were paramount in Dallas Highland Park’s success, as he amassed 92 total tackles, and mind-boggling totals elsewhere with 36 tackles for loss, 20 sacks, and 19 quarterback hurries while guiding the Scots to their third consecutive Class 5A Division I state championship.
Dorbah is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 229 overall player and as the No. 15 linebacker prospect, per the 247Sports Composite.
