Chalk up another signed-and-sealed commitment for Texas, as Cypress Falls receiver Jacorey Warrick has faxed in his Letter of Intent and is now officially a part of the 2013 Longhorn recruiting class. Warrick ranks No. 48 on Orangebloods.com’s Lone Star Recruiting’s Top 100.
Warrick held offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, LSU, Northwestern and Nebraska, among others, but ultimately chose the home-state Longhorns. Co-Offensive Coordinator/Wide Receivers coach Darrell Wyatt and Defensive Ends coach Oscar Giles were the point men on his recruitment.
Offered a scholarship while attending Texas’ second junior day in late February last year, Warrick decided to put an end to the recruiting process shortly afterwards by verbally committing to the Horns.
While fellow wide receiver commit Jake Oliver is projected to play on the outside, the 5’10”, 168-pound Warrick fills the slot receiver role in this class (watch his high school highlights here). Think Jordan Shipley, destroying defenses by turning short screens and crossing routes into huge gains. Newly promoted play caller Major Applewhite craves speed and explosiveness, and with the departure of seniors Marquise Goodwin and D.J. Monroe, only sophomore Daje Johnson fits that mold, meaning Warrick’s dynamic athleticism is sorely needed. If Warrick can fully recover from the torn meniscus he suffered this past October, he could see the field as a freshman. If not, look for him to spend 2013 under the watchful eye of Strength and Conditioning coach Bennie Wylie as a redshirt.
