The Dotted Line: Commitment Q&A with 2020 offensive lineman Jake Majors

Posted January 28th, 2019


Texas’ 2020 class grew to three members last Thursday when three-star offensive lineman Jake Majors of Prosper pledged to the Longhorns. It was somewhat lost in the shuffle due to the news that 2019 five-star athlete Bru McCoy transferred to Texas from USC. Still, Majors is a key part to the 2020 puzzle and an important piece for the future of Texas’ offensive line.
