After receiving an offer from Tom Herman and Texas only 10 days ago, 2017 San Antonio Reagan OL Derek Kerstetter flipped from Oklahoma State to Texas today. The Army All-American chose the Longhorns over competing offers from Houston, Illinois, Texas Tech and UTSA. Here’s his Hudl.
How he fits at Texas: Texas needs to maintain a pipeline of tackle prospects rolling into Austin at all times and Kerstetter could be the guy for a 2017 class that will likely be low on numbers across the OL. He was a rock for Reagan at LT this year, very difficult to beat in pass protection and the tip of the spear in their outside zone run game. He regularly reached LBs or drove out DEs on that play and has the kind of quick feet to make for a great blocker on the perimeter. He’ll need time to get bigger and stronger but he has the athleticism to lock down the right or left side for Texas as an upperclassman down the road. – IB
