Legacy won in the recruiting race for Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal outside linebacker Luke Brockermeyer. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect chose a preferred walk-on spot with the Longhorns instead of a guaranteed full-ride from Rice and Oklahoma State. Brockermeyer is also an option at tight end.
The son of former Texas offensive lineman Blake Brockermeyer recorded 82 tackles and 12 sacks as a senior. He registered 13 sacks as a junior. He scored two defensive touchdowns as a junior. Luke took an unofficial visit to Texas on Jan. 26.

The Longhorns signed 19 players to the 2018 class in December during the early signing period. The class has grown to 25 with national signing day tomorrow. Tom Herman and his staff expect to sign upwards of 30 prospects and are in the mix for Rice grad transfer Calvin Anderson, a top-rated offensive tackle.
Luke won’t count towards the class, but he’s not looked upon by the staff as the normal walk-on. Texas signed two linebackers – Ayodele Adeoye and Byron Hobbs – on Dec. 20. Adeoye, a 4-star middle linebacker is already on campus as an early enrollee. Hobbs, an outside linebacker, will arrive in the summer.
Texas hopes to sign Conroe Oak Ridge defensive end Joseph Ossai and flip Arkansas inside linebacker commit Andrew Parker on national signing day. The Longhorns are also in the top five for Schertz Clemens wide receiver Tommy Bush, who will decide Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. on ESPN2 at his high school.
