The Dotted Line: Commitment Q&A with Texas commit Jaden Hullaby

Posted April 8th, 2019


Texas added a versatile athlete in three-star running back Jaden Hullaby of Bishop Dunne High School in Dallas. The 6-2, 205-pound playmaker held 25 offers after rushing for 1,181 yards and 11 touchdowns. He added 392 yards and five touchdowns on 33 receptions. That ability to rush the ball and catch gives Hullaby the ability to potentially play multiple positions in Texas’ offense. Hullaby expects to play all over the field for the Longhorns and is the fifth member of Texas’ 2020 recruiting class.
