Texas signee Ronnie Major has been given final approval to join the Longhorns, he announced on his Twitter account. A separate source confirmed Friday afternoon that Major has been approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
Major, listed at 6 feet, 6 inches and almost 300 pounds, was rated as the 10th-best offensive tackle in the nation by Scout. His cousin, Cedric Reed, played defensive end for the Horns and has since joined the Buffalo Bills.
The last signee awaiting final approval by compliance is tight end Devonaire Clarington. An ACT review panel is currently looking over his test score, according to a source familiar with Clarington’s situation. Without the proper approvals, Clarington cannot practice or he would prematurely start his NCAA eligibility clock.
