The second commitment from Texas' second junior day is in, and it's a prospect who could fill more than one key role for the Longhorns.
Warrick will be a slot receiver or cornerback for the Longhorns.
Cy Falls athlete Jacorey Warrick, who currently ranks as the No. 121 overall prospect in the country according to 247Sports and the nation's No. 6 athlete, committed to Texas on Sunday afternoon. The 5-foot-10.5, 170-pound four-star prospect became the eighth verbal commitment in the Longhorns' 2013 recruiting class.
Hookem.com learned early Sunday afternoon that Warrick was one of the few visitors for the Longhorns' second junior day on Saturday to pick up an offer. Warrick, Cy Woods linebacker Deoundrei Davis (who committed to Texas on Sunday morning), Lancaster defensive end Daeshon Hall, and Lake Highlands offensive tackle Kent Perkins are the only known offers from the Saturday event.
Warrick actually told Hookem.com's Gerry Hamilton late in the week that while an immediate commitment was unlikely to happen at the junior day, he certainly didn't rule out that possibility entirely if the Longhorns were to offer.
“I’ve actually been thinking about that (committing to Texas if offered)," he said. "I know I won’t commit on the spot. I will just have to be real sure about what I want to do.”
Apparently he was sure that Texas was the right fit, as Warrick joins Dallas Jesuit's Jake Oliver and Sealy's Ricky Seals-Jones as receiver takes for the Longhorns thus far in 2013. Warrick will head to Texas as a slot receiver, but that could change down the road.
“They are recruiting me more as a wide receiver, but also as an athlete that could play on defense at cornerback,” Warrick said.
Warrick chose Texas over offers from Baylor, Clemson, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma and others. As a junior, he caught 43 passes for 850 yards and 11 touchdowns.
