AUSTIN — Another camp, another successful event put on by the Texas Football staff on Friday night. When they weren’t dousing Tom Herman in the dunk tank, or having a giant water balloon fight on the field at DKR, the 2018 and 2019 prospects were competing in special events and getting a dose of what the future holds for the program on the 40 Acres.

One such prospect was 5-star DE DeMarvin Leal.

2018 is loaded instate at the cornerback position and Texas just received a commitment from one of, if not, the best.

Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green committed to Texas today over offers from Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Clemson and many others. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound corner was highly coveted in the 2018 class.

We’re pretty loaded with Scoopage on this fine Monday. Hopefully palindrome week is off to a nice start for you. If it isn’t, this Scoop should help.

The staff is not only pressing for 2018 commitments, it’s also extending an introductory handshake to many of the state’s best 2019 prospects. As these relationships strengthen, those handshakes turn into hugs and before you know it, a large portion of the 2019 class will be wrapped up by this time next year.

Halfway through the 2018 cycle, it is getting to the point (early as it may seem) to start to get to know the rest of the 2019 class. Sure, some elites have made their names known like Jordan Whittington, Arjei Henderson, and Brian Williams, but some of next years up-and-comers need an introductory moment.
