The Texas Longhorns are now one small step closer to potentially landing yet another talent from the Peach State.
On Sunday morning, Cedartown (Ga.) running back Kobe Pyror released his top 10 schools, and Tom Herman’s program remains firmly in the mix. In addition to Texas, Pryor named South Carolina, Penn State, Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Auburn, LSU, Clemson, Georgia, and Michigan as the schools he’ll continue to consider going forward.

A three-star prospect, Pryor picked up his Texas offer at the tail end of January during a period when his stock was beginning to soar. In the months since, though, he’s yet to visit the Horns, so the fact that Texas is still a top team speaks of his interest in the program. The Horns have certainly had not only interest, but success with Peach State products as of late, as evident by Texas signing a pair of four-star standouts in 2019 in Buford running back Derrian Brown and Loganville Grayson cornerback Kenyatta Watson II.
This time around, the Longhorns are still looking for their first addition from Georgia with six offers currently out.
As far as Pyror’s position, in particular, Texas does already hold a pledge from one running back prospect in Dallas Bishop Dunne Star Jaden Hullaby, who rushed for 1,181 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018, but he projects as more of an H-back.
At 6’0, 200 pounds, Pryor is ranked as the nation’s No. 728 player, No. 54 running back, and as the No. 72 player in Georgia, per the 247Sports.
