Houston officially lands highest-rated recruit in program history

Tom Herman has done a terrific job as the head coach of the Houston Cougars the last year or so and it looks like his team is going to be just as talented next year. They just pulled off a big coup by landing their highest-rated recruit in team history.

Five-star defensive tackle Ed Oliver has been committed to the Cougars since last June, but he made it official on Wednesday when he signed his scholarship to join the team in 2016.

The Cougars went 13-1, won the AAC championship, and then manhandled Florida State in the Peach Bowl. With the team bringing in the highest-rated recruiting class of any Group of Five conference team, there’s no reason why the Cougars shouldn’t be just as good this year as they were last.
