Dodge had been hearing from the Texas coaching staff for about a month. He was recruited by Greg Davis and Mike Tolleson. His relationship with the coaches played a big part in his decision to commit to the Longhorns.
"Oh yes, I have a great relationship with them. That is what brought me here and is one of the reasons I committed today. I'm so excited about the opportunity to play at Texas. They just come with open arms. One of the things I liked was the family atmosphere," Dodge said.
"Its pretty much been my dream to come here. Since I was little, I have always dreamed of playing at Texas," Dodge said. "It's Texas; they are just one year removed from winning a national championship."
Riley Dodge is the son of former UT quarterback Todd Dodge.
