Social reaction: Texas players, coaches react to Keaontay Ingram commitment

Posted May 31st, 2017


Texas gained a ninth member in its 2018 recruiting class on Tuesday, when four-star running back Keaontay Ingram committed to the Longhorns. A member of the Fabulous 55, Ingram ranks as the No. 12 running back in the nation.

He also helped lead Carthage High School to the 2016 Class 4A Division I state championship.
