Texas remains in the mix for the top-ranked wide receiver recruit in the country.
Terrace Marshall, a five-star prospect from Parkway High School in Bossier City, Louisiana, included the Longhorns in the top four he released Friday evening. He is also considering LSU, Miami and Texas A&M.
Marshall, the No. 10-ranked overall prospect in the Class of 2018, attended Texas’ junior day back in February, a big accomplishment for the Longhorns coaching staff. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver holds offers from nearly every major program in the country, but LSU is still considered the favorite to land him.
A notable omission from Marshall’s top four list is TCU. His high school teammate, four-star quarterback Justin Rogers, recently committed to the Horned Frogs.
The Longhorns currently have 12 players committed in the Class of 2018. Four-star Justin Watkins is the only wide receiver in that group so far. Earlier this week, Texas received a commitment from the top-ranked safety in the class, B.J. Foster from Angleton.
Marshall would become the highest-ranked recruit in the class if Texas can land him.
