Jordan Pouncey, WR, Winter Park (Fla.)
FYI: 6-2/185; the No. 105-ranked wide receiver in the nation.
Wide receiver became a priority for Tom Herman’s staff as national signing day approached. After missing on in-state candidates like Omar Manning and Charleston Rambo, Texas went all-in on the Florida prospect. Pouncey was receptive to Texas’ attention and eventually took an official visit to Austin. Since that visit, Texas was viewed as the leader and Wednesday the Longhorns earned the 6-2 playmaker’s signature. Pouncey is a versatile wide receiver with the ability to play outside and in the slot.
