AUSTIN(KXAN) — Connally high school (Pflugerville, Texas) senior Jahdae Barron committed to Texas on Thursday afternoon. Barron (5-11, 175) is a four-star cornerback who also plays wide receiver for the Cougars.

Barron actually signed with Baylor in December, but was released after head coach Matt Rhule left for the Carolina Panthers.

According to 247sports.com’s player ranking, Baron is listed as the No. 9 ranked cornerback in the state’s 2020 class. Barron joins Lake Travis quarterback Hudson Card, Hutto receiver Dajon Harrison, and Cedar Creek defensive lineman Alfred Collins as Austin-area recruits in this class.

Barron is the second player UT has added in the last three days, bringing their total to 21 newcomers. On Tuesday, Michigan graduate transfer wide receiver Tarik Black committed to Texas.
