The Texas Longhorns are in search for another talented out-of-state prospect after extending an opportunity to 2021 Ironton (OH.) athlete Reid Carrico, the rising junior announced on Twitter Tuesday evening.
The Ohio native is no stranger to receiving attention from top Power 5 programs. Carrico has now garnered 20 total offers from schools such as Florida, Florida State, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, and Wisconsin.
Considered one of the nation’s top athlete’s in his class, Carrico has proven to get the job done in multiple phases of the game during a strong sophomore showcase, as he starred making plays out of the backfield and also was a force at linebacker. If you take a closer look at some of Carrico’s intangibles, you’ll see that the linebacker position will most likely suit him best as he continues to develop and works his way up to the next level.
Carrico hasn’t yet made his way down to Austin for an unofficial visit, so the staff will have it’s work cut out for them if they decide to make the four-star recruit a vital target. The team to beat early is Ohio State, as they presume a threat being in state. The Buckeye’s currently hold all Crystal Ball picks.
Tom Herman and company have now offered four athlete’s from the 2021 cycle.
At 6’3, 218 pounds, Carrico is ranked as the nation’s No. 193 player, No. 19 athlete, and No. 9 player in Ohio, per 247Sports.
