Tom Herman and company are once again in pursuit of an elite out-of-state prospects, as 2021 Hart County (Hartwell, Ga.) tight end Cane Berrong announced an offer from the Texas Longhorns on Friday afternoon.

Coming from the Peach State, Berrong has now earned a total of 19 offers from a great deal of the nation’s top programs. Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Penn State are among those in the mix, just to name a few.

The four-star talent has yet to make it down to the Forty Acres and with Texas jumping in the mix sort of late compared to other Power 5 schools in close proximity to Berrong, the staff will have a their work cut out for them if they have legitimate aspirations of acquiring him.

Since Herman took over, the national brand for Texas has been a main priority for the program. This past recruiting cycle the staff was able to sign two prospects from Berrong’s home state in Loganville (Ga.) Grayson cornerback Kenyatta Watson II and Budford (Ga.) running back Derrian Brown.

The Horns have now put out three total offers at the tight end position for next year’s recruiting class.

At 6’4.5, 220 pounds, Berrong is ranked as the nation’s No. 59 player and No. 1 tight end, per the 247Sports.
