Texas adds 2020 offensive tackle Andrej Karic to 2020 class

Posted July 24th, 2019


Texas is starting to recruit like a team coming off consecutive top-three recruiting classes and a win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. It took longer than desired for the Longhorns to build momentum on the recruiting trail. Tom Herman’s program continued a successful week by notching the pledge of Southlake Carroll offensive tackle Andrej Karic. This follows commitments from a pair of 2021 stars over the past three days.

Karic is the fourth offensive lineman to pledge to Texas in the 2021 class, becoming the 11th commitment in the cycle. The 6-5, 240-pound three-star is a project who is still new to football. He started his career at defensive end. His footwork is great for a big man, but he’ll need to add 40 pounds before competing for a spot in Texas’ two-deep. Assistant coach Herb Hand has recruited well enough to provide Karic that time.
