AUSTIN (KXAN) — Lake Travis tight end Cade Brewer got his opportunity to become a “Lifetime Longhorn” during Lake Travis’ postseason run. On Friday, he decided to take it.
Brewer commited to Texas via Twitter picking the Longhorns over SMU.
Brewer commited to SMU in April, but reassessed his options when Texas came calling. Longhorns coach Tom Herman offered Brewer following the Lake Travis-Westlake playoff game in early December. Herman and his coaching staff watched that game from the sidelines.
