Texas’ coaching staff scored a recruiting victory over Texas A&M on Wednesday by landing the commitment of four-star defensive tackle Vernon Broughton. The Cypress Ridge product also took official visits to Ohio State and Arkansas. The Longhorns won out for the 6-5, 286-pound prospect who ranks No. 8 on the 2020 Fabulous 55. Broughton was a first-team all-district selection as a junior and one of two dozen Texas products at The Opening Finals in Frisco at the start of July.

Broughton is Texas’ ninth pledge in the 2020 cycle, and its first along the defensive line. Broughton joins outside linebacker Prince Dorbah and cornerback Kitan Crawford as the only defenders committed to Texas in 2020. The remaining targets along the defensive line include local defensive ends Princely Umanmielen and Alfred Collins.
