Texas has entered the fray for Tallahassee (Fla.) John Paul II Catholic safety Makari Vickers, offering the four-star recruit a scholarship this week.

Vickers announced the news Thursday on Twitter.

The On3 Consensus – a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies – has Vickers as the No. 85 overall player in the country.

He is the seventh-best player at his position in the nation behind only Hoschton (Ga.) Mill Creek five-star safety Caleb Downs, Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson four-star safety Tony Mitchell, Danvers (Mass.) IMG Academy four-star safety Joenel Aguero, Denton (Texas) Guyer four-star safety Peyton Bowen, New Iberia (La.) Westgate four-star safety Derek Williams and Shiner (Texas) four-star safety Dalton Brooks.

Vickers holds offers from many of the nation’s blue bloods, including Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan and Tennessee.

During the fall, On3’s Jeremy Johnson talked with Vickers about his recruitment. The Florida product was excited about the opportunities in front of him.

“It’s my junior year and things are starting to pick up in terms of rolling around that time to make a decision and balance out my options,” Vickers told Johnson in late September. “I think I’m going to drop my top 12 toward the end of the season, we’ll see how it goes.”
