Odunze’s Texas offer becomes his 30th overall, with the Longhorns joining programs such as Alabama, Oregon, Washington, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Penn State, Notre Dame, and UCLA in pursuit of the nation’s No. 91 wide receiver prospect, per the 247Sports Composite.
He’s made trips to Penn State, Florida, and Miami throughout the spring.
Ranked as the third-best prospect in Nevada, Odunze is now the ninth uncommitted wide receiver with a Texas offer in hand.
A three-star talent with 4.55 40-yard dash speed and a 33.8-inch vertical leap, Odunze enjoyed a breakout campaign as a junior, as he hauled in 60 receptions for 1,347 yards and 15 touchdowns.
