Rahssan Thornton Texas Preview

As Texas is in the heart of the camp circuit many players have a chance to come and earn an offer from the Longhorns. One player camping this weekend is 6-foot-4, 225-pound outside linebacker/defensive end Rahssan Thornton from Killeen (Texas) Shoemaker H.S.

Rahssan Thornton holds offers from California, Kansas, LSU, Michigan and North Texas. He will camp this weekend with Texas in hopes of landing an offer from head coach Charlie Strong.

Thornton is long and lean. He has great versatility and explosiveness. A bit of an unknown nationally I expect that to change by the end of the summer months.

”I think I play very physical, very fast and very smart,” Thornton said. “I use my size and hands very well with the addition to my speed which makes me a great player. I would like to focus more on the small details things I sometimes miss.”

If Thornton does the things I believe he is capable of in front of the Texas coaching staff he very well could add the Texas offer to his list of schools.
