The Texas Longhorns coaching staff continue their streak of offers to 2021 prospects as they’ve presented an opportunity to their second Texarkana-product of the week.

On Thursday afternoon, Texarkana Pleasant Grove strong-side defensive end Marcus Burris earned an offer from the Longhorns, he announced on Twitter.

Burris has seen his recruitment take off throughout the last four months, picking up all of his 16 offers within that time period. The four-star standout has attracted the attention of some prestigious programs, as he’s garnered offers from schools including Alabama, LSU, Miami, Nebraska, Oklahoma, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Washington.

The Longhorns are also in the running for Burris’ teammate, four-star weak-side defensive end Landon Jackson. The two of them are a part of next year’s cycle and will be huge priorities for the Horns along the defensive front.

Tom Herman and company have now sent out 10 offers to defensive ends across the country and five hail from within the state. Burris and Jackson are currently some household names to pay attention to. Katy Tompkins standout Tunmise Adeleye being another key Texas target, while Port Arthur Memorial’s edge rusher Jordon Thomas will remain in the mix, and Wichita Falls Rider riser E’Maurion Banks is entering the fold after also adding an offer.

At 6’4, 262 pounds, Burris is ranked as the No. 71 recruit in his class and as the No. 7 strong-side defensive, per 247Sports.
