Four-star 2021 quarterback Jalen Milroe commmits to Texas

Posted July 21st, 2019


Tom Herman continued his tradition of nabbing his quarterback prospect a year before the start of their junior season when Katy Tompkins four-star Jalen Milroe picked the Longhorns on Sunday. He becomes the third member of the 2021 class, joining wide receiver Quay Davis and tight end Lake McRee. Milroe is a 6-1.5, 194-pounder who is the third-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 cycle. 

Milroe amassed an impressive early offer list with Alabama, Florida, and Texas A&M among his 19 offers. He passed for 1,420 yards and 10 touchdowns to just four interceptions on only 174 passing attempts. Milroe added 609 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground and was named the District 19-6A Newcomer of the Year as a sophomore.
