Tom Herman and Houston landed a pretty big fish Monday, as it was learned that class of 2017 four-star dual-threat quarterback/athlete Jaylon Mascorro made a verbal pledge to play for the Cougars.

ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton reported the new on Twitter Monday.

Mascorro, a 6’2”, 205-pound quarterback/athlete from Refugio, Texas (Refugio High School), is rated as a four-star recruit according to 247 Sports. The site ranks Mascorro as the No. 286 overall recruit in the 2017 class and the 30th-best athlete in the country. 247 Sports also ranks Mascorro as the 37th-best football player in the state of Texas for the 2017 class. Mascorro also runs a 4.50 40-yard dash.

He chose the Cougars over strong interest from Kansas, Rice and SMU (all of whom offered Mascorro a scholarship). Mascorro was also receiving interest from BYU, LSU, Minnesota, Mississippi State, TCU, Texas and Texas A&M.

Mascorro is the fifth commitment of Herman’s young 2017 recruiting class. He will join four three-star recruits in cornerback Terry Petry, weak-side defensive end Alexander Duke, running back Carlos Grace and inside linebacker Derek Parish.

Although it’s early, 247 Sports ranks Houston’s 2017 recruiting class as the 14th best in the country.
