Erick Fowler terrorized District 17-5A the last two years, a district comprised of teams found in Charlie Strong and Texas’ backyard. Fowler was an Austin American-Statesman All-Central Texas performer as a junior and senior and may go down as one of the greatest players to ever play for Manor High School.
The 4-star linebacker committed to LSU at first but switched to Texas on National Signing Day.
Here’s what they’re saying about Erick Fowler.
And yes, as you’ll see below, his mom does really does make great pancakes.

2 weeks ago, Jeff Howe called Erick Fowler the "Sergio Kindle of this class". So now I'm going to watch Sergio Kindle highlights for a bit.

Somehow losing Erick Fowler dropped LSU from the greatest class in modern recruiting history to No. 3 overall. #crootin

Not going to lie, glad that Erick Fowler will be staying home and playing at Univ. of Texas.… https://t.co/J3csnvnGuk

Strong said he didn't know that Erick Fowler was coming to Texas until he called this morning.

LSU can not lose Erick Fowler (the best pure pass rusher I the 2016 class)he might make or break this class we need linebackers bad!

Really tough for #LSU to lose out on LB Erick Fowler in Texas. Michael Divinity and Rahssan Thornton are some pretty good additions though.
