Judging by reaction across social media, Tom Herman’s latest catch on the recruiting trail may have been his biggest yet.

Caden Sterns, a four-star safety from Cibolo Steele, flipped his commitment from LSU to Texas on Sunday evening. Landing the No. 4-ranked prospect in the Fabulous 55 and taking him from an SEC powerhouse caused quite a stir.

Sterns also brought the Longhorns’ list of 2018 commitments up to eight, and it’s an elite group. In fact, Texas’ class currently ranks No. 10 in the nation according to 247Sports. It’s the top class in the Big 12 right now.

Needless to say, that has a lot of people excited.
