Horns Hook Humphrey

Cedar Hill, Texas defensive tackle Jarvis Humphrey wanted to make sure that the school he chose was the right place for him. Over the past two months, he took trips to Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State. In the end, the Longhorns stood out more than the others. Humphrey committed to play football at the University of Texas Tuesday.

"Yes sir," Jarvis Humphrey said when asked if he had committed to Texas. "I called my head coach. Coach McGuire [Cedar Hill] told me what to do. I called and talked to Coach Chambers. He was excited and glad that I had committed."

Humphrey had offers from Miami, Michigan, Alabama, Texas A&M, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Texas Tech, Minnesota, Ole Miss and Wisconsin. He had recently narrowed his choices to Texas, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. He talked about why Texas stood out over the other Big 12 programs.

"The situation is pretty good for me. They aren't bringing in a lot of defensive linemen this year, and I don't have to worry about Mack leaving. They are used to winning just like me and Texas is close to home. It was just the best situation for me," Humphrey said.

Humphrey hasn't made any plans to attend any summer or one-day camps, but he is planning on participating in the Scout.com combine in Dallas on March 25th.

"I'm going to talk to my coach and see what he wants me to do," Humphrey replied when asked if he had made any plans for this summer.

The 6-foot-2, 290-pound Humphrey helped lead his Cedar Hill squad to a 5A state title last year and is currently ranked as the top defensive tackle in the Lone Star State. He hopes to continue his winning ways on the next level at the University of Texas.
