Tom Herman and his staff have extended an offer to one of the hottest prospects in the state.
After making an unofficial visit to Texas for the Orange-White spring game on Saturday evening, Gruver tight end Jalin Conyers walked away with an offer from the Longhorns, he announced on Twitter.
Had a blast at UT today and after a good talk with @CoachDWarehime, I am humbled and blessed to receive an offer to play football at the University of Texas! ️ #HookEm @BCarringtonUT pic.twitter.com/sWLRyC7ys3— Jalin Conyers (@J_Conyers_2020) April 14, 2019
The four-star prospect has been one of the state’s more highly-coveted prospects as of late, as he’s garnered each of his 19 offers in recent weeks. Some of the nation’s high profile programs like Arizona State, Baylor, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and USC are lobbying for Conyers’ talent.
Conyers is labeled as a tight end, but he’s most certainly versatile and athletic enough to line up as a wideout or be a dominant force on the defensive side of the ball. Last season, Conyers racked up over 1,200 yards receiving, 24 total touchdowns, 50 total tackles, and four interceptions.
The Longhorns have now offered four total tight ends in this current recruiting class. With Conyers being the latest, he is the first in-state prospect at his position to land an offer from Texas.
At 6’4, 220 pounds, Conyers is ranked as the nation’s No. 286 player and as the No. 6 tight end, per the 247Sports Composite.
