Excited to be a Horn

AUSTIN, Texas – A commitment to Texas by Lufkin 2015 standout Keke Coutee has been a possibility to happen for several weeks.

Keke Coutee is heading to Texas as a two-way prospect.

The 5-foot-9, 160-pound athlete has had the Longhorns as his leader for some time. On Sunday, while at lunch during the Texas' mini-camp, Coutee informed Mack Brown and the Longhorn staff that he was done waiting and wanted to pull the trigger.

“I'm down here and I just want to make it official,” Coutee said. “This is a great opportunity I have and I'm happy to be going to Texas.”

The Longhorns have recruited Coutee as a two-way prospect. He's working out at wide receiver during today's camp, but he said he'll play anywhere as long as he can help the Longhorns win football games.

The latter is what Coutee is most concerned about at the next level. The lifelong Texas fan couldn't see himself with any other program other than the Longhorns.

“I just love them,” Coutee said. “Great academics, great school and I've always been a fan.”

Coutee becomes the fifth commitment for the Longhorns in the 2015 recruiting class joining Sherman offensive lineman Aaron Garza, DeSoto defensive tackle Bryce English, Corpus Christi Flour Bluff cornerback Jalen Campbell and Keller five-star offensive lineman Maea Teuhema, the No. 1-ranked prospect in Texas in the 2015 class.

Coutee is elated to be the in fold, and he's ready to do some recruiting in order to bolster the Longhorns' haul.

“It's great,” Coutee said. “I'm going to try to get more people to join because Texas is a great school.”
