Texas is on the board once again! This time with the verbal pledge from 2021 TE Gunnar Helm (Englewood, CO).
The tight end position this cycle has been a wild ride for the most part with Landen King and Lake McRee both having once held spots in the class before. But with Helm in the fold now, there is hope the TE spot can finally be closed down for good.
Helm is a composite three-star prospect that displays pretty solid hands. TE coach Jay Boulware will have time to develop him with a number of tight ends on roster for Helm’s first season as well.
Texas now has 15 members in their 2021 class and currently sit 12th in the team rankings according to the 247Sports Composite.
