New Texas Longhorns’ head coach Charlie Strong is a former defensive coordinator, but until Saturday, he had not yet received a commitment from a defensive player in the class of 2015.
That changed when 3-star cornerback Keivon Ramsey gave his pledge to the Longhorns.
After the news broke, Strong quickly confirmed the commitment via his twitter account.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Spring Game today! Your support helped us earn another #LetsRide

Ramsey was in attendance as the Longhorns played their annual Orange and White spring football game and clearly, he came away impressed with what he saw.
The 6’1, 170-pound Ramsey is from Converse, Texas and attends Judson High School.
Ramsey is ranked as the 50th-best cornerback prospect in the country, the 66th-best overall prospect in the state of Texas and the 547th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Ramsey chose the Longhorns over offers from the Baylor Bears, Oklahoma Sooners, Oregon State Beavers and Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners, among others.
