The Texas Longhorns are set to host one of their key recruits for an important visit, as Dallas Highland Park standout Prince Dorbah has scheduled his official visit with the Horns, announcing on Twitter that he will be in Austin next weekend.

The elite outside linebacker has toured the Forty Acres multiple times this year, with his most recent trip coming in April for the Orange-White spring Game. To date, Texas owns each of his two Crystal Ball projections. Dorbah previously detailed to BON that the Horns’ on-field success last season plays a large part in why he has such high interest in taking his talents to Texas.
“I thought they had a solid season overall. Just bouncing back from not really having a good season the year before,” Dorbah said. “You know just coming back to win the Sugar Bowl. Just building off of that, that’s something that you want to build off of and hopefully end up winning a national championship.”
In late March, Dorbah cut his list of schools down to a top five, and with no surprise, the Horns found themselves heavily in the mix. Next to UT, Dorbah also named Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State.

With the recent verbal commitment from Duncanville star Ja’Quinden Jackson and the newfound #DallasToAustin movement, Dorbah could be a prospect that continues that wave for Tom Herman and company, and this upcoming weekend will be a major factor in whether or not Austin is where he will call home going into the next level.
The four-star product presumes to be the top target for the Longhorns at his position. Texas’ defensive line coach Oscar Giles and offensive coordinator Tim Beck are the two coaches on staff recruiting Dorbah the hardest.
At 6’2.5, 210-pound, Dorbah fits the mold of your modern-day hybrid edge rusher, and he’s as productive as any prospect at his position across the country. As a junior, Dorbah’s efforts were paramount in Dallas Highland Park’s success, as he amassed 92 total tackles, and mind-boggling totals elsewhere with 36 tackles for loss, 20 sacks, and 19 quarterback hurries while guiding the Scots to their third consecutive Class 5A Division I state championship.
Dorbah is currently ranked as the nation’s No. 109 prospect and No. 8 outside linebacker, per the 247Sports Composite.
