The Texas Longhorns aren’t shying away from their efforts to transform Missouri into a pipeline state for Tom Herman’s program.
On Sunday morning, the Texas staff put an offer on the table for Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge weak-side defensive end Jalen Logan-Redding, he announced on Twitter.
After a great visit yesterday, I’m truly blessed to say I have received an offer from the University of Texas #ThisIsTexas #HookEm pic.twitter.com/NShZ6vwLCw— Jalen Logan-Redding (@Jalen_Redd) March 31, 2019
Logan-Redding now holds 13 offers from programs like Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma State.
While the three-star prospect hasn’t necessarily garnered a large number of opportunities from powerhouse programs, he does possess the overall stature that programs look for in a prospect at his position at 6’4, 235 pounds.
The Longhorns have offered seven total defensive ends. Logan-Redding is now the fifth out-of-state edge rusher to receive an offer from the Horns.
His only Crystal Ball pick to date favors the home-state Missouri Tigers. However, the Longhorns have enjoyed success luring Missouri natives away from home throughout the Herman era, as Texas has signed a pair of Missouri prospects in each of the previous two classes in Ayodele Adeoye and Daniel Carson in 2018, and Marcus Washington and Jacoby Jones in 2019. Texas recently held a pledge from Saint Louis (Mo.) Trinity Catholic wide out Mookie Cooper, as well.
As a junior, Logan-Redding tallied 47 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, seven sacks, and four fumble recoveries.
Logan-Redding is ranked as the nation’s No. 611 player and the No. 24 weak-side defensive end, per the 247Sports Composite.
