Head Coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are about to embark on an epic journey to NSD. Over the next 23 days, Texas fans will see numerous high school football players make their pledge to join the Longhorn Nation. Texas will sign somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-14 more players for the class of 2016.
January 16th, 2016 could be a monumental official visit weekend for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. Texas could host as many as 23 recruits combined with official, unofficial visits and early enrolle players. The next player tentatively scheduled for the 16th is four-star wide receiver Reggie Hemphill-Mapps.
Hemphill-Mapps announced his intentions to play for Texas in October of 2014. He is very competitive, elusive and runs routes extremely well. He should be one of four wide receivers in the class of 2016. Clemson, Colorado, Houston, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma to name a few.

Hemphill is very aggressive after balls thrown down the field, has a high vertical ability, and sure hands. On the underneath routes, he gets good separation and has the skills to make people miss in the open field. Because of the screen game and his ability to run he would look good playing out of the slot, but his talents also transcend one position, because he does have the playmaking skills to split out and stretch defenses. Well-rounded. - GP
