On Tuesday, four-star tight end Malcolm Epps (6-foot-6, 218 pounds, Houston, TX) announced that he was heading to play with Tom Herman’s crew at Texas.
Epps had previously been committed to Alabama before reversing that decision several months ago. Epps mentioned that he was also considering schools like Texas A&M, Michigan, Ohio State, and Florida State before he eventually made his decision on Tuesday.
With the commitment, Texas now has 17 recruits as a part of their 2018 class. The Longhorns have had a string of commitments in recent weeks, and they now rank as the No. 2 class in recruiting according to 247Sports.
Epps is ranked as the No. 7 tight end in this year’s class.
