Katy running back Deondrick Glass down to 10 schools, includes Longhorns

Posted May 11th, 2018


Katy running back Deondrick Glass included Texas among his top 10 schools on Friday afternoon. The four-star athlete is the in-state running back to hold an offer from the Longhorns. TCU, Ohio State, Michigan and Oklahoma were among his list of favorites. Glass, a former high school teammate of current Longhorn Kyle Porter, visited Texas for a junior day.

In his three-year varsity career, Glass has rushed for 4,230 yards and 70 touchdowns. He split carries with Porter as a freshman while Katy stomped its way to another state championship. The role of No. 1 running back became Porter’s as a sophomore and junior. He’s rushed for more than 1,600 yards and 25 touchdowns in his past two seasons as the starter.

Texas’ top targets at running back are a pair of IMG Academy teammates in Trey Sanders and Noah Cain. Glass is No. 18 on the initial 2019 Fabulous 55. At 5-10 and 190 pounds, Glass is a big-bodied running back who can handle a large workload and gain tough yardage between the tackles. He’s also a quality receiver and pass blocker.
