3-star Florida wide receiver Jordan Pouncey places Texas in his Top 4

Posted January 30th, 2017


With a wide receiver slot open in his 2017 class, Texas coach Tom Herman may get a commitment from his fourth out-of-state athlete on Wednesday.

With Tulsa, Okla. tight end Reese Leitao, Dodge City CC linebacker Gary Johnson and Mississippi Gulf Coast CC kicker Josh Rowland already committed to this year’s class, the Longhorns may secure the services of three-star wide receiver Jordan Pouncey as well.

This weekend, the 6-2 wide receiver placed Texas in his Final 4:


Pouncey made an official visit to the 40 Acres on Jan. 20 and was impressed by Herman’s intensity.

“Coach Herman is so high energy it isn’t even funny, he told Hookem.com’s Mike Craven. “On my official visit they brought us all to Dave and Buster’s and Herman was playing someone in the free throw game. Coach Herman won, and all of a sudden he was banging on tables and started yelling.”

The Winter Park athlete also was a huge fan of Longhorn legend Vince Young as a kid when he played quarterback. He will announce his school decision at 12:15 CST on Wednesday.
