Bullard TE Major Tennison commits to Texas for 2017

Posted October 14th, 2015


Bullard’s Major Tennison, a 6-foot, 6-inch tight end, has orally committed to Texas for the 2017 recruiting class, Horns Digest reported late Wednesday.

Oklahoma State and Texas Tech were also pursuing the three-star athlete. Tennison becomes the third player in the 2017 class for UT coach Charlie Strong.

Rivals.com considers Tennison the eighth-best tight end prospect in the nation for the 2017 recruiting cycle.


The Texas coaching staff is scheduled to fan out all across the state on Thursday and Friday for a heavy recruiting weekend. The Longhorns are off this week and return to action on Oct. 24 against Kansas State.
