Longhorns Class of 2016 They Said It: Katy RB Kyle Porter

Posted February 18th, 2016


Kyle Porter committed to Texas a day before National Signing Day earlier this month and was one of the first signs that Texas was going to have a big day to follow.

Why was Porter’s commitment a big deal? Other than the fact that he rushed for 1,938 yards and 36 touchdowns as a senior for the undefeated Class 6A, Division I  Texas state champion Katy Tigers? Well, here’s what people have said about him.
