George Ranch High School defensive end/outside linebacker Peter Mpagi (’19) recently released the list of schools that he’ll be focusing on on Friday, May 25 while also keeping his recruitment open.
Among the Big 12 Conference, Baylor and Texas were on that list. Mpagi visited Texas in both July and April 2017 and received an offer from Baylor on Wednesday, May 23. He told Armchair that he plans to visit Baylor and also plans on returning to Texas on Tuesday, June 5.
“TCU has two commits already and Tech is far,” Mpagi said.
According to his Hudl page, Mpagi is 6-5 and weighs 220 pounds. He ran a 4.64 in the 40-yard dash, benched 240 pounds and squatted 380 pounds.
Mpagi helped lead George Ranch to a 6-4 overall record in 2017. George Ranch finished the season with a 4-2 home record, 2-2 away record and a 4-2 district record, according to the team’s MaxPreps page. George Ranch closed out the season when the team lost to Clear Lake in the UIL State Championship tournament, 24-8.
Texas currently ranks No. 15 overall for football recruiting on 247 Sports while Baylor is ranked No. 31. For the Big 12, Texas has moved up to No. 2 while Baylor has moved down to No. 5, below TCU and Iowa State. Landing the 3-star defensive end/outside linebacker could be a boon to either school this early in the process, especially in the offense-first Big 12.
