Late Monday evening, the Texas Longhorns have put an offer on the table for one of the elite prospects in the entire country for the 2022 cycle.
Atascocita offensive tackle Kam Dewberry had been in contact with the Texas coaching staff for quite awhile although he’s just getting started with his recruitment. With just a few days left in his freshman year of high school, Dewberry found himself on the receiving end of a Texas Longhorns offer.

The young standout has already garnered 10 early offers from programs such as Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, and Texas A&M. Dewberry is on a quest to become one of the more highly coveted and ranked recruits in the nation by his senior year, and it looks like he’s certainly on the right track to doing just that.
Dewberry saw a ton of action as a freshman helping anchor the offensive line at left tackle and playing opposite of five-star Texas A&M signee Kenyon Green. Dewberry will have some big shoes to fill coming behind Green, but he’s already looking the part after a strong first year on varsity and dominating top defensive prospects on the camp circuit during the offseason.
The Forty Acres is a familiar place for Dewberry, as he camped there last summer entering the ninth grade and has visited on multiple occasions. That’ll likely be a trend for Dewberry as he continues to move forward through his high school years.
The Longhorns have now offered four prospects from the 2022 class in Nolan Catholic running back Emeka Megwa, Dallas Skyline defensive tackle Keithian “Bear” Alexander, Denison running back Jadarian Price, and Dewberry being the first offensive lineman to become a target.
At 6’4, 294 pounds, Dewberry is currently unranked, but that will soon change.
