4-Star DE Zac Swanson Commits to Texas

NCAA Football: Texas at Texas Tech

It does not seem to matter the time of day when it comes to recruiting for the Texas Longhorns. For the second time this year, Texas was able to land a commitment out west straight out of Pac-12 country.

On late Monday night, the Longhorns landed a commitment from Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy College Preparatory defensive lineman Zac Swanson. The four-star recruit chose Texas over schools such as Kentucky, Oregon, and USC.


Swanson was offered by the Texas staff in February, but it did not take long for the Horns to jump up his leaderboard. Despite being offered just two weeks earlier. Swanson named Texas in his top four schools along with Kentucky, USC, and Oregon.

Zac is ranked as a four-star defensive end according to 247Sports. With him on board, the Longhorns now have a total of eight commits for the 2022 class which ranked second in the Big 12 and ninth in the country.

With Zac’s commitment, Texas now has two defensive line commits for the 2022 class as he joins fellow defensive lineman Kristopher Ross out of North Shore High School in Houston, Texas.

I would not be surprised to see more kids from the west coast have an interest in Texas for the foreseeable future between Steve Sarkisian’s ties there as well as new defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski.
