Offensive Guard Rami Hammad (Irving (TX) High School) has signed his letter of intent to Texas. He is listed as a 4 star on Rivals and on 247 Sports. Rami originally committed to Oklahoma State in June and then committed to Baylor in November.
Rami Hammad was a lightly recruited player from the Metroplex that had very few offers when he committed to Oklahoma State in June. Rami, like many late bloomers, had an amazing senior season where he blew up across the nation fielding offers from LSU, Michigan State, Arkansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Baylor among others. He decided on Baylor in November but when the Longhorns showed interest, he decided to listen and it paid off for the Texas Longhorns coaching staff with his signature today.
Rami Hammad is one of 4 offensive lineman signees today for the Texas Longhorns. While I am convinced that only 1 (Desmond Harrison) will see significant playing time in the fall, I wouldn’t be shocked if Rami Hammad works his way onto the field. He is a heck of an athlete to have on the offensive line and if the coaching staff believes he can contribute, he will.
The Texas Longhorns are anticipating the signatures of 11 men today to go along with 15 total signees for the 2012 Football Recruiting Class.
