Jasper’s Terrell Cuney announced that he committed to Texas while in Austin for the Longhorns’ spring football game Saturday. The 6-foot-3 260 pound center is the ninth overall Texas commit for the 2014 class and the second offensive lineman.
Cuney is one of the top rated centers in the country according to various recruiting sites. He is extremely mobile for a center and will bring much needed athleticism to the position. At 260, he may need to put on a few pounds but appears to have the frame capable of adding the extra weight while maintaining his current quickness.
Cuney received offers from Texas Tech and TCU and received strong interest from Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, UCLA and Utah among others. The Longhorns were the heavy favorites from the beginning though, and Cuney finally decided to make it official this weekend.
He is the second player to commit to Texas in the last 24 hours. Bryce English, a 2015 defensive tackle from DeSoto, committed on Friday.
