Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns continue to gauge the market for out-of-state options.
More specifically, the Longhorns enhanced emphasis on the St. Louis area doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon. On Friday, Texas extended offers to a trio of Trinity Catholic (Mo.) teammates in 4-star 2019 wide receiver Marcus Washington, 4-star 2019 outside linebacker Shammond Cooper, and 2020 running back Teriyon Cooper, per 247Sports.

Following the Longhorns latest offers, the trio joins 2019 teammate Isaiah Williams as highly-touted prospects with invitations to play at Texas.
While recruiting the state of Texas is always essential, Herman and his staff have already found considerable success recruiting the St. Louis-area during the current cycle, as the Horns hold a pledge from St. Louis native and IMG Academy (Fla.) product, Ayodele Adeoye. Furthermore, Texas remains firmly in the mix with elite St. Louis Lutheran North weak-side defensive end Ronnie Perkins, as well as strong-side defensive end and Independence (Mo.) native Daniel Carson.
If Herman and his staff are able to close the 2018 class on a high note with another pledge or two out of Missouri, such success can go a long way with the Longhorns latest targets.
