Texas wrapped up a fantastic 2018 class. Now, on to 2019. We’ve got notes on the some of the top prospects that should make it to Austin soon for Junior Day. We also talk to a handful of targets from the 2019 class and more. It’s the all-recruiting version of the Inside Scoop.

In one of the more drawn out and important recruiting battles the state of Texas had for the class of 2018, Texas came out on top. In doing so, they addressed a position of great need.

AUSTIN — When it boiled down to accepting a scholarship from a Division I program or playing for his dream school, Luke Brockermeyer knew what he wanted to do.

Today, he committed to Texas. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound linebacker from Fort Worth All Saints chose UT, the school where his father Blake was an All American offensive lineman and NFL veteran, over offers from Oregon State and Rice. Luke will enroll as a preferred walk-on in Austin.

Ojomo picks Texas

AUSTIN — Defensive line recruiting went from a question mark to an exclamation point in the past several weeks. That was emphasized even more today.

2018 Katy 4-star DL Moro Ojomo committed to Texas today over competing offers from Texas A&M, Oregon, Oklahoma, and Notre Dame. Ojomo, only 16 years old, tips the scales at 6-foot-2, 275 pounds. 

Jones commits to Texas

With room in the class, Texas began looking for someone they could mold in the program. They found that guy in northwest Houston.

2018 Cy-Woods OL Christian Jones committed to Texas today. Jones was previously committed to SMU and had other competing offers from Cal, Virginia, and Vanderbilt.

Three more days and UT puts a bow on a spectacular 2018 class. Final percentages on the remaining unsigned targets, notes/quotes from visitors this weekend including two elites, and the Way Too Early look at how Texas looks with the 2019 targets and prospects. Post-Super Bowl Scoop for those that skipped work today.

AUSTIN — When it came down to a final decision, it was actually easy. 

At least for Yoakum 4-star WR Joshua Moore, who committed to Texas today. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound athlete chose UT over Florida State, Texas A&M, Oregon, and LSU among his 52 offers.
