4-star OLB Brennon Scott includes Texas in top group

Brennon Scott is one of just five outside linebackers with a Longhorns offer in hand.

More than half of the programs with offers out to Dallas Bishop Dunne outside linebacker Brennon Scott now find themselves on the outside looking in.

On Sunday evening, the top 300 talent cut his list of options from 27 schools to 11, and the Texas Longhorns remain in the mix, alongside Nebraska, Auburn, Texas A&M, LSU, SMU, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Florida, and Colorado.

Baylor, Michigan State, Houston, Mississippi State, and Ole Miss are among the many programs that didn’t survive Scott’s first list cut.

A four-star prospect, Scott has visited the Forty Acres on a pair of occasions, with his most recent resulting in an offer after touring Texas on Jan. 19. The Longhorns are yet to add an outside linebacker pledge this cycle and Scott is one of only a handful of prospects at his position with a Texas offer in hand. Of that bunch, Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas product Derek Wingo is already pledged to Penn State.

Dunne also stands as the only in-state outside linebacker on Texas’ big board to this point, though it’s Texas A&M that owns his only Crystal Ball projection.

As a junior, Scott helped guide Bishop Dunne to a TAPPS state title, totaling 80 tackles, 15 sacks, and nine tackles for loss along the way.

A 6’2, 220-pound prospect, Dunne is ranked as the nation’s No. 25 outside linebacker and as the No. 35 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
