Frisco Wakeland offensive lineman Rafiti Ghirmai made a commitment to Texas this summer over a handful of major schools.
The four-star prospect spoke with The Dallas Morning News about his decision to pick Texas, his expectations for the Longhorns’ season and more.
DMN: What are your thoughts on UT’s season so far? Obviously, they fell to Maryland in the opener but bounced back against San Jose State.
RG: I think the Maryland loss was early jitters. Everyone is nervous for their first game. It was a new coach, and players weren’t used to the tempo. I still think Coach (Tom) Herman is a great coach. I just think it was a hiccup, and they are going to keep coming back strong.
DMN: Where does your commitment stand right now?
RG: I’m still solid. I’m a Longhorn. I would like to see them get to a bowl. If they make the playoffs great, but I at least want to see a bowl game out of them. Right now, I’m with Longhorn nation, and I think they’ll turn it around.
DMN: Are any other schools still recruiting you?
