By Matt O’DonnellThe latest on the Longhorns’ commitment to commit to the University of Texas, which has already announced it will have its first Big 12 title game on March 5 and the Longhorn Network will begin broadcasting a championship game in 2019, with two marquee players from each conference expected to be in attendance.
The Longhorns have three commitments in the class of 2019, including wide receiver Chris Clark, who has committed to the Aggies.
But a handful of schools have already confirmed they are committed to Texas and have already received verbal commitments from players in the 2019 class.
The latest commit to UT from the 2018 class is tight end Anthony Fannin.
The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder committed to Baylor, which is currently ranked No. 5 in the nation.
The former Longhorns receiver also visited Baylor earlier this week.
Fannin’s commitment comes just weeks after Texas announced its first commitment of the 2018 recruiting cycle, as he announced on Twitter that he has committed.
He joins a class that also includes defensive tackle Ryan Shafer and cornerback Jonathan Holmes.
Flynn’s commitment is expected to happen in the next few weeks.
Texas has been recruiting players from across the country and has also received several verbal commitments in recent years.
