On Sunday evening, the Texas Longhorns staff once again looked beyond that state’s borders in search of top-tier talent, with an offer going out to Hazelwood (Mo.) Lutheran North outside linebacker Antonio Doyle, he announced on Twitter.
Texas becomes the the four-star prospect’s 30th offer, as the Longhorns join Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan, LSU, and TCU in the mix, among numerous others. Texas A&M and Oklahoma have been projected as Doyle’s early landing spots, per his Crystal Ball. Doyle was recently in Norman for an unofficial visit in early May, and his has official visits scheduled to Missouri and Texas A&M on June 8 and June 22, respectively.
Of course, given that the nation’s No. 12 outside linebacker, per the 247Sports Composite, is already kicking off his official visit tour, Texas arrived to the party a bit late and will need to prioritize Doyle in order to emerge as a legitimate threat to some familiar recruiting rivals.
The 6’4, 230-pound Doyle becomes the 10th outside linebacker prospect to add a Texas offer. Dallas Highland Park star Prince Dorbah and Dallas Bishop Dunne standout Brennon Scott have been the priorities at the position to this point, though Doyle is more highly regarded as far as rankings are concerned, currently slotted at No. 176 nationally.
