Texas football is just one win away from a trip to the Big 12 Championship Game, with Kansas on the schedule this weekend. Texas recruiting is also going quite well.

With 22 commits, the Longhorns currently rank seventh in the country for the class of 2019. That is one spot ahead of rival Oklahoma, and tops in the Big 12.

The most recent pledge for the Longhorns came at the expense of Oklahoma as well.

Defensive end Jacoby Jones is the No. 1 ranked JuCo defensive end in the country. 247Sports has him No. 26 among all junior college players.

Jacoby Jones recently decommitted from Oklahoma, and now he is set to join the Texas football program.

He made the announcement earlier this week.

Colorado, NC State, Oklahoma State, Oregon, TCU, Texas Tech, UCF, and Washington State are among the other programs that were after Jones in this recruiting cycle.

Jones is a Missouri native, who played his high school ball at McCluer North. He is currently at Butler Community College in Kansas.
