Longhorns Add Top Linebacker

Texas picked up its ninth commitment Saturday afternoon, with this pledge coming from one of the Longhorns' top linebacker targets.

Peter Jinkens blew up on everybody's radar with a strong junior season where he showed off great range, athleticism and speed. He used that ability to pick up a Texas offer Saturday, and committed immediately.

Jinkens has a great frame at 6-1 210, and sideline-to-sideline speed, making him a great fit in new defensive coordinator Manny Diaz's blitz-from-everywhere scheme.

Jinkens makes the Longhorns' second linebacker in the class, and is Texas's second commitment from Dallas Skyline. His teammate is wide receiver commitment Thomas Johnson.
