After releasing his top 11 schools in February, Dallas Bishop Dunne outside linebacker Brennon Scott is back with updated — and smaller — list of programs he’ll be paying close attention to.

On Monday evening, the four-star prospect cut his list of options down to five, and the Texas Longhorns remain in the mix alongside Auburn, Kansas, Oregon, and USC.

At the moment, the #DallasToAustin movement is looking stronger than ever with two recent commits from Duncanville athlete Ja’Quinden Jackson and Dallas Skyline wide receiver Quaydarius Davis, That said, the first Dallas commitment for the Horns from this current recruiting cycle just so happens to be Scott’s teammate, three-star athlete Jaden Hullaby. With the help of Hullaby, wide receiver assistant Ra’Shaad Samples, and the rest of the Longhorn coaching staff, Scott will be receiving a great deal of love and convincing from the burnt orange family.

Thus far, beyond including Texas on multiple lists, Scott has reciprocated that love in the form of multiple trips to the Forty Acres, including two trips this offseason. Scott was most recently on hand for the spring game.

A 6’1, 230-pound talent, Scott is one of the state’s premier prospects, as he has an outstanding knack for getting after the quarterback and is truly a hard-nosed punisher when meeting ball carriers. His speed and will allows him to be the difference-maker every time he steps foot on the field.

As a junior, Scott helped guide Bishop Dunne to a TAPPS state title, totaling 88 tackles, 14 sacks, and nine tackles for loss along the way.

Scott is ranked as the nation’s No. 26 outside linebacker and as the No. 50 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite. His only Crystal Ball pick was placed in favor of Texas.
