Unfortunately for the Texas Longhorns, this isn’t a pledge that’s likely to end in their favor.
Rather, it’s in-state recruiting rival Texas A&M that overwhelmingly owns the momentum just hours before his decision, as the Aggies currently hold all 12 of his Crystal Ball picks.
A late offer likely didn’t help the Horns case here, as Texas didn’t extend an offer until several weeks ago in early April. Nevertheless, Texas has pushed, and despite the dead period, 247Sports’ Brian Perroni noted that Harmon recently toured the Forty Acres on his own.
With a decision made, though, is it too little too late? That certainly seems to be the industry sentiment.
If Texas does, in fact, miss out on Harmon, who’s currently ranked as the nation’s No. 316 player and No. 23 cornerback, they’ll still remain without a defensive back pledge this cycle. To that end, the top target to keep an eye on as Texas’ priority at the position is Dallas Kimball star Ishmael Ibraheem, who is currently projected to side with the Horns.
