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."
