The Texas Longhorns picked up a verbal commitment from top ranked Texas player, Tyrone Swoopes, Rival’s 5-Star quarterback.
Swoopes is ranked as the 11th best player in the entire nation. He hails from Whitewright, TX, and has picked up offers from LSU, Notre Dame, Alabama, Stanford, and other top programs. Many recruiting services claim that Swoopes has a style similar to that of Texas Longhorn legend, Vince Young. All commitments at this stage are verbal and therefore non-binding until National Signing Day next February.
During his junior season, Swoopes rushed for 2,267 yards at 13.3 yards per carry. He scored 29 rushing touchdowns and added 15 through the air. He passed for 1,394 yards, proving to be a true dual threat weapon at the quarterback position. He has as much potential as any Texas recruit since Vince Young walked the 40 Acres and led the Texas Longhorns to their first National Championship since 1970.
