Tom Herman and offensive line coach Herb Hand set out to land a true center prospect this cycle, and Myslinski comes with plenty of promise. He attends Bishop Kennedy in Jacksonville, Florida. His dad, Tom, played nine seasons in the NFL and is currently the strength and conditioning coordinator for the Jaguars.
Myslinski is the second commitment for Texas along the offensive line, joining four-star offensive tackle Hayden Conner. Myslinski is the fifth pledge from out of state. The class ranks 12th in the nation and first in the Big 12.
