The news of Hullaby’s commitment to the Horns comes less than a month after his first visit to Austin on March 11, which ended with the coveted prospect earning a Texas offer.
All told, Hullaby owns 25 offers with Florida, LSU, Michigan State, TCU, and Arkansas serving as some of the more prominent programs involved in Hullaby’s recruitment. Aside from his trip to Texas, Hullaby has also toured Texas A&M, Southern Miss, Arkansas, and SMU throughout the process.
Though he’s listed as a running back, and understandably so after he rushed for 1,181 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior, the 6’2 205-pound Hullaby is a versatile talent who’s skill set could be utilized at a number of positions, such as at tight end or on the other side of the ball as a Rover linebacker. In addition to his efforts as a ball carrier, Hullaby hauled in 39 receptions for 396 yard and five touchdowns, and totaled 16 tackles.
Hullaby is ranked as the nation’s No. 830 player, No. 58 running back, and as the No. 111 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
