Four-star LB Anthony Wheeler Commits to Texas

The Texas Longhorns have been one of the hottest teams in the country over the last month of the recruiting season. Charlie Strong and the rest of the Longhorn coaches have put in major work, and they are seeing big time results as National Signing Day inches closer.

Over the last several weeks the Longhorns have picked up big time verbal commitments from players such as five-star linebacker Malik Jefferson, four-star wide receiver DeAndre McNeal and four-star cornerback Davante Davis.

Moments ago UT added yet another huge piece of the puzzle when four-star middle linebacker Anthony Wheeler (Dallas, Texas/Skyline) announced his commitment at the Under Armour All-American Game.

The talented prospect chose Texas over rival Oklahoma, as well as offers from Alabama, Baylor, LSU, Texas A&M, UConn, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Ole Miss, SMU, TCU and Texas Tech.

Wheeler is a 6-foot-2, 225-pound wrecking ball of a middle linebacker, and is one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Texas.

He is the No. 1 ranked MLB in the midland region and checks in at No. 125 in America regardless of position.

The Texas staff has done a remarkable job on the recruiting trail, and this is yet another example of the hard work the coaches have done.

Scout Take:

Anthony Wheeler is one of the more physically imposing players in the class of 2015. He looks like a kid's wrestling figurine. He lines up at defensive end and linebacker on his sophomore film and makes a good amount of plays. Wheeler runs well for a bigger framed linebacker and should be a perfect fit as a MLB unless he grows into a true DE over the course of his natural development. Wheeler hits like a ton of bricks, and ball carriers do not escape his grasp.
