Moments ago, four-star defensive tackle Du’Vonta Lampkin (Houston/Cy Falls) announced his verbal pledge to the Longhorns, one day after four-star wide receiver John Burt joined UT’s 2015 class.
Newest UT commitment Du'Vonta Lampkin.
He’s had the Longhorns No. 1 for quite some time now but gave Texas fans plenty to worry about when he took a weekend trip to Baton Rouge, La., to visit LSU.
Lampkin tweeted that he had a “tough decision” ahead but ultimately decided to roll with UT, a school he visited on July 18 just before Texas started its “Under the Lights” camp.
Lampkin is a big, strong prospect that possesses a rare blend of size and speed. His talents were on display at the Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas where he was dominating in one-on-one drills.
Lampkin is the 14th commitment for the Longhorns in 2015, their fourth in July, and their first defensive tackle.
