Yet another Longhorn legacy now has an offer in hand.
On Saturday evening, while touring the Forty Acres for the Orange-White spring game, 2021 Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal center James Brockermeyer became the latest in his family to earn an opportunity to play for the Texas Longhorns, he announced on Twitter.
Extremely excited to announce that I have received an offer from The University of Texas! #HookEm pic.twitter.com/46zZEBN9j4— James Brockermeyer (@JBrockermeyer21) April 14, 2019
The son of former Longhorn great Blake Brockermeyer, who earned All-American honors in Austin as a star left tackle before going on to become a first-round pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, Brockermeyer’s Texas offer becomes his ninth overall. Texas joins programs such as LSU, Michigan, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Oklahoma State in pursuit of the 6’3, 243-pound prospect.
Brockermeyer’s brother, Tommy, who’s a five-star offensive tackle currently considered to be the No. 3 player in the 2021 class, owns a Texas offer, as well, and each of his four early Crystal Ball picks favor the Horns. Much of the same can be said for James, whose Crystal Ball is now at 100 percent in favor of Texas with two picks to date.
Their older brother, Luke, recently joined the Longhorns program as a walk-on, as well.
Brockermeyer is currently unranked, but expect that to change.
