HOUSTON - It has been a busy last month for Jordan Revels.
The North Shore defensive lineman had a receiving touchdown, six tackles, one forced fumble and earned 6A State Championship game Defensive MVP on December 22 to cap his senior campaign.
"Feels great knowing I left a legacy behind me," Revels said about leaving with a state title.
On Saturday, Revels picked his next stop giving new Texas State coach Jake Spavital a big get on the defensive side of the ball by verbally committing to the Bobcats.
"I've been having love for Texas State academically wise and I was very familiar with the new coaching staff," Revels said. "They came from Texas Tech, my teammates were committed to Texas Tech they always talked about how good the coaches where and things like that."
A big key to his commitment to Texas State was new defensive coordinator Zac Spavital, who was the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Texas Tech last season. Also an important coach in the recruiting process was Coach Mims.
Texas State went 3-9 last season.
Heading to San Marcos, Revels will try and ignite a defensive unit that gave up an average for 28.36 points and 386.9 yards per game.
"I think I can bring some new energy to the defense," Revels said.
But the defensive side of the ball may not be the only spot you see Revels play.
In the playoffs this season, Revels jumped over to the offensive side and registered three receiving touchdowns, including on in the state championship game against Duncanville.
"It felt good to score and stuff on offense in the big time games," Revels said. "Shows I can function in clutch situations outside of my position."
