The Texas Longhorns have intrigued one of the nation’s very best prospects in the 2021 class, as Plant City (Fla.) Armwood wide receiver Agiye Hall included the Horns in his 12 programs on Saturday afternoon. Also in the mix alongside Texas is Arizona State, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and USC.
According to 247Sports, 41 schools have put an offer on the table for Hall, and out of all of the programs he listed in his final 12 schools, the Longhorns stand alone as the only school that doesn’t show up in the offer section.
After speaking with Hall, he told BON that he, in fact, has not garnered an offer from the Horns yet, but because of the talks he’s had with Texas wide receivers coach Corby Meekins, he feels as if he’s on the verge of obtaining an opportunity to play in burnt orange.
There’s clearly a great deal of interest on the five-star prospects end.
“I like their offense, I like the program,” Hall expressed to BON about why Texas made the cut. “They’re very successful with wideouts.”
At 6’3, 190 pounds, Hall is coming off a solid season when he racked up 878 yards receiving and touched the end zone 10 times. His testing numbers are off the charts for someone of his stature with a 37.30 vertical jump, a 4.29 shuttle, and a 4.50 40-yard dash time.
Hall has the makings and ability to be a game-changing threat catching the ball at the next level and so forth.
Tom Herman and company have already reeled in a commitment at wide receiver in next year’s cycle with Dallas Skyline standout Quaydarius Davis being the first verbal pledge for the Longhorns. Texas has also offered eight receivers in the 2021 class.
Hall is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 17 player and No. 2 wide receiver, per the 247Sports Composite.
