Manor LB Erick Fowler picks Texas over LSU

Posted February 3rd, 2016


Manor four-star linebacker Erick Fowler flipped his commitment from LSU to Texas and signed with the Longhorns on Wednesday.

His change of heart marked a huge win for Texas, which had been pushing hard for Fowler, the No. 21 player on the American-Statesman’s Fab 55, after he committed to LSU in June.

Fowler’s family gets an assist for their efforts to keep him home.


Fowler (6-1, 226 pounds) will likely play the FOX, a hybrid position manned in 2015 by Naashon Hughes.
