Tapp now becomes the seventh defensive line commitment, and the 20th overall commitment of the 2022 class for the Longhorns, as well as the second in the last 12 hours, after Marlin (TX) defensive tackle Jaray Bledsoe committed earlier in the day.
Standing 6-foot-3 and weighing in at 245 pounds, Tapp is the fourth edge rusher to commit to the Longhorns, alongside Liberty (Henderson, NV) edge Anthony Jones, Brophy College Preparatory School (Phoenix, AZ) defensive end Zac Swanson, and Texas High (Texarkana, TX) pass rusher, Derrick Brown.
“Texas is a strong suit for me. They’re up there,” Tapp told Orangebloods.com “They’re up there in the strong suit. One, it’s just my dream school. It’s the only college I really knew about when I was young.”
