Another high profile 2016 recruit is leaving Austin as reports indicate Erick Fowler is transferring. Fowler signed with Texas out of Manor after flipping late in 2016. Fowler is a hybrid linebacker/defensive end.
Fowler played in nine games in 2016 and made one tackle. Fowler had academic issues but was clear by the NCAA as fall camp was underway. He was a four-star composite recruit according to 24/7.
Fowler joins Jordan Elliott and Marcel Southall in leaving the program in the recent weeks.
