Peter Mpagi completes dream
Texas picked up its 10th commitment of the 2019 cycle on Saturday when three-star defensive end Peter Mpagi chose the Longhorns over Stanford, Washington and Northwestern. The 6-4, 224-pound prospect from Houston George Ranch was a late bloomer on the football field. He played half of his sophomore season on varsity after starting the year on junior varsity. He became a first-team all-district selection as a junior when he finished the 2017 season with 33 tackles and nine sacks.
