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.
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.***** Wheeler’s Junior Highlights
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.
