The Texas Longhorns continue to make a statement with out-of-state prospects, as they’ve found their way onto numerous top schools lists throughout the week.
The latest recruit to name Texas a contender is Memphis (Tenn.) White Station offensive tackle Ray Curry Jr. On Wednesday afternoon, Curry released his top 12 schools that he will be focusing on during the remainder of his recruiting process. The Longhorns were mentioned next to Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi State, Missouri, Nebraska, Ole Miss, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
Tom Herman and his staff extended an offer to Curry nearly a year ago, but he has yet to visit the Forty Acres. There is still some obvious interest from Curry’s end, seeing that he named Texas one of his top programs. It’ll be interesting to see if the Tennessee product makes an unofficial visit at some point this offseason.
Texas currently holds a trio of four-star verbal commitments along the offensive line in tackle Jaylen Garth, guard Logan Parr, and center Jake Majors. The staff will continue to pursue key in state offensive tackle’s, as well in Chad Lindberg and Dameion George. If the Longhorns miss on either one, Curry could potentially become a prospect that they place increased emphasis on pursuing.
At 6-foot-5, 300 pounds, Curry is ranked as the nation’s No. 559 player, the No. 51 offensive tackle and the No. 18 player in Tennessee, per the 247Sports Composite.
