Dylan Parsee had been verbally committed to Stephen F. Austin since early August, but UTEP has been showing heavy interest in the talented defensive hybrid since November after their initial offer.
Parsee was in El Paso over the weekend for his official visit to UTEP, and announced this evening that he will flip his commitment to UTEP's class of 2016.
The 6'2, 210 pound defensive end/linebacker racked up eight sacks, an interception, and 68 total tackles last year at San Angelo Central High School. Parsee earned 3-6A All-District First Team Honors this past season, and was apart of 23 wins the past two seasons at Central High in a tough district 3-6A.
His skill set and 4.7 40-yard dash time will provide UTEP with a hybrid outside linebacker, and package defensive end who can also play with his hand in the ground in certain blitz packages inside UTEP's new 3-4.
UTEP now has 13 verbal commit for the class of 2016 with two commits coming on Sunday from the state of Texas. 12 of those commits are high school prospects who are expected to sign on February 3rd.
