Texas’ recruiting class is now at eight members with the Saturday commitment of four-star defensive end Jordon Thomas. The 6-3, 240-pounder from Port Arthur Memorial picked Texas over Texas A&M. He missed his junior season with a lower leg injury after earning second-team all-district as a sophomore when he recorded 32 tackles, including seven tackles for loss and five sacks. He ranks No. 25 on the 2021 Fabulous 55.

Thomas is a big-bodied defensive lineman with a long-term future as a three-technique defensive tackle as he continues to grow. His best football is in front of him as a raw, rusty prospect who needs more time on the field to refine technique. Thomas is the first true defensive lineman committed to Texas unless five-star athlete Ja’Tavion Sanders counts. Sanders plays wide receiver and defensive end.
