Texas adds commitment from Longview defensive tackle Sawyer Goram-Welch

Posted December 15th, 2019


The Longhorns added its 17th commitment of the 2020 class on Sunday when three-star defensive tackle Sawyer Goram-Welch pledged to Texas on an official visit to Austin. The Longview product plans to sign with Texas on Dec. 18 and enroll in January, giving Texas’ staff another big body on the defensive line. 

The 6-4, 278-pounder was a one-time commitment to Oklahoma State and picked up an offer from Texas on Dec. 2. Goram-Welch joins four-star Vernon Broughton as the two defensive tackle commits in the 2020 cycle. Both are enrolling early and hoping to crack the two-deep under a new defensive coordinator as true freshman. 

Texas’ 2020 class ranks sixth in the nation and first in the Big 12 despite a 7-5 record and looming changes at both coordinator positions. The Longhorns lost the commitment of three-star athlete Ty Jordan to Utah earlier in the week.
