Update: Austin Uke made his announcement on Wednesday that he will be playing college football at Stanford.


A significant number of college football recruits for the class of 2021 signed their national letters of intent in the Early Signing Period in December, but there are plenty of talented prospects announcing their decision on National Signing Day including offensive tackle Austin Uke. Players in the 2021 class can sign on National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 3 and can do so anytime before the Aug. 1 deadline.

Let’s get to know a little more about Uke and where he might end up. He is expected to make his decision on Wednesday.

Austin Uke Recruiting bio

Austin Uke is a three-star offensive tackle according to the 247Sports Composite player rankings and attends Parish Episcopal School in Dallas, Texas. He is ranked 475th nationally in the composite and is the 40th-highest ranked offensive tackle and No. 71 prospect from the state of Texas. He is 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds.

Uke has a pretty incredible story as he was recruited by mostly FCS schools until very recently. He committed to play at Holy Cross in September but once he started getting more FBS offers, he decommited in November. Uke now has some of the best programs in college football going after him.

Offer list

Uke’s FBS scholarship offer list according to 247Sports includes Florida State, Georgia Tech, Houston, Maryland, Missouri, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Penn State, SMU, Stanford, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, USC, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech.


Where’s he headed?

Austin Uke appears to be staying in his home state to play for the Texas Longhorns, according to 247Sports. If this happens, this will be one of the craziest stories of the class of 2021 recruiting cycle. Just a few months ago, he wasn’t being contacted by FBS schools, and he could land at one of the biggest brands in all of college football.

Texas already made a move earlier on National Signing Day when it picked up three-star defensive end David Abiara, and the Longhorns rank No. 17 in the latest 247Sports Composite team rankings, which is second in the Big 12 behind Oklahoma.
