If Texas wants to win a national championship under Tom Herman, it needs to recruit like a champion. Those efforts were bolstered Friday with a verbal commitment from five-star running back Bijan Robinson. The Longhorns nabbed Robinson — unofficially — over Ohio State and USC. The 6-foot, 200-pound recruit had visited all three schools in June.
Quietly, Robinson had been leaning toward Ohio State and many in the recruiting arena thought he would end up a Buckeye. However, Horns offensive coordinator Tim Beck and running backs coach Stan Drayton made a late run at Robinson, who announced his decision on his Twitter account.
Robinson also spoke more in-depth about his choice to 247Sports.
