Hours after national signing day concluded, the Longhorns added a piece to their recruiting class. Three-star quarterback Cole Lourd committed to Texas on Thursday as a preferred walk-on. Head coach Steve Sarkisian has three scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, so Lourd provides much-needed depth at the position with a chance to eventually earn a scholarship. Dream come true.
He played college football for the University of Iowa , and earned consensus All-American honors. Clayborn was born in St. Louis, Missouri. At birth, he suffered from a condition known as Erb's Palsy , something that is caused during birth by an injury to the nerves surrounding a child's shoulder. Because his head and neck were pulled to the side as his shoulders passed through the birth canal, he suffered nerve damage resulting in the loss of some movement and weakness in his right arm.
On Sunday, the Longhorns earned their first commitment under Steve Sarkisian. Every other commitment from the class happened under the eyes of former head coach Tom Herman. The Longhorns extended an offer just four days ago to the all-district kicker. With Cameron Dicker being the current kicker, Auburn will likely sit for at least a year before he will get his opportunity for the Longhorns. The Flower Mound kicker was named all-district first team for both kicker and punter in the Texas High School A district.
