5-star LB/DE Erick Fowler flips from LSU to Texas

The Texas Longhorns scored a big get on National Signing Day when linebacker/defensive end Erick Fowler, out of Manor High School in the Austin area, committed to Charlie Strong after initially being tied to LSU. Fowler’s decision was posted to Twitter by Victor Diaz of Time Warner Cable News Austin.

Fowler should slot in perfectly next to rising sophomore Malik Jefferson and after a forgotten 2015 season, Texas is bound to take a step forward next season.
