Louisiana defensive end Myron Warren was set to be a TCU Horned Frog, until Texas football came through with an offer. On Monday he made his new commitment to the Longhorns.

Warren committed to TCU back in May, a pledge that seemed fairly solid until October 8, when the Longhorns extended their offer.

The very next day, he backed off of his commitment.

Other big offers, included Oregon and Nebraska, have come in since, but over the weekend, he took a trip to Austin to see Texas' 24-10 win over Iowa State.

Yesterday, Myron Warren committed to Texas football.

He announced the decision via Twitter:

His note on the decision:

"I am excited to announce my commitment to play football at the University of Texas! I would like to thank my parents, coaches and teammates for their ongoing support during my career! HOOKEM"

Warren is a three-star composite defensive end out of Many, La. 247Sports ranks him No. 637 overall in the country, and No. 44 at his position.

With his pledge, Texas holds strong at No. 7 in the 2019 recruiting rankings. The Longhorns also have the No. 1 class in the Big 12.
