Defensive lineman Van Fillinger de-commits from Texas

Posted December 1st, 2019


The losses for Texas on Sunday didn’t just include assistant coaches. Texas lost the commitment of three-star defensive lineman Van Fillinger. The big man from Corner Canyon High School in Utah announced the re-opening of his commitment on Twitter. Texas’ 2020 class is now down to 17 pledges with the early signing period less than three weeks away. Fillinger was one of just six defensive prospects committed to Texas.

Four-star Vernon Broughton remains Texas’ lone defensive line commit with Prince Dorbah expected to move to outside linebacker at Texas. The Longhorns are still in the hunt for Bastrop Cedar Creek’s Alfred Collins, a four-star defensive end.
