Texas football coach Tom Herman has just added a new layer to the Longhorns’ rivalry with the Oklahoma Sooners.
On Saturday, four-star Class of 2018 quarterback Cameron Rising took to Twitter with a lengthy statement to announce he has flipped his commitment from Oklahoma to Texas.
Rising made it clear that Herman was a huge part of his decision to make the switch.
“I want to be part of building something special, something historic, and know that Texas is the place for me,” Rising wrote on Twitter. “I truly believe Coach Herman will bring Texas back to the elite status program it is.”
Rising, a Newbury Park (Calif.) standout, is the No. 7 rated pro-style quarterback in his class. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder is also rated as the No. 16 overall prospect in the state.
While we will have to wait and see if Herman can bring results to the field, it’s already clear to see he is instilling confidence in his players.
