The Houston Cougars have commitments from two of the top ten players in Texas, as ranked by the ESPN 300. Very cool!
Of the top 100 on that list, Houston has four commitments. TCU, Baylor, and Texas A&M lead the way with 9-10 commitments each, but Houston isn’t too far behind. What else is interesting is the Cougars are the only school not in a Power 5 conference with any commitments in the top 100 players in Texas. The Coogs are currently recruiting the top 100 as well as Texas and Texas Tech. It should be interesting to see how everything shakes up over the next few months towards signing day. Just imagine what Coach Herman and staff would be able to do with a major conference behind them.
Looking at 247Sports.com overall team rankings for the 2016 class the Houston Cougars currently sit at #37 overall, higher than Texas and Oklahoma State. Not bad!
