Four-star cornerbacks Kris Boyd and Holton Hill commit to Texas


After head coach Charlie Strong saw QB recruit Kyler Murray stick with the Aggies, he needed some good news and fast. And that’s exactly what he got as four-star cornerbacks Holton Hill and Kris Boyd committed to the Longhorns on Friday afternoon.

“Officially Committed To The University Of Texas #Hookem #Noflyzone #DBU #LetsRide,” Hill tweeted.

Hill, who played in Houston at Lamar High School, is ranked as a top-10 cornerback in the nation by 247sports. Kris Boyd, who played at Gilmer, is also a possibility to play running back while a top-flight cornerback prospect.

“I Have Officially Committed To The University Of Texas! #HookEm #LetsRide #NoFlyZone #DBU,” Boyd tweeted.

With national signing day just around the corner on Wednesday, Strong hopes the commitments gets the momentum flowing in the right direction.
