  1. It’s been a tumultuous month for Texas football, particularly in the recruiting arena. A month ago, five-star athlete, Billy Bowman flipped from Texas to Oklahoma. Bowman was a centerpiece of the 2021 class for Texas and his decommitment was a huge blow. It got worse however as a few weeks later, Texas not only lost four-star 2022 wide receiver Phaizon Wilson but five-star quarterback Quinn Ewersas well. Quinn Ewers is widely regarded as the best quarterback prospect not only in the class of 2022 but in recent memory as well. While it will be hard to replace him and others along the way,
  2. Less than a month the Texas Longhorns lost the commitment of near five-star athlete, Billy Bowman Jr. Before October can even come to a close, the Longhorns lost another commitment. This time, it’s Quinn Ewers. Ewers, who is the top quarterback prospect not only in the 2022 class but also one of the highest-ranked recruits ever to play the game, announced his commitment to Texas on August, 14. The five-star quarterback prospect is a 6’3 200-pound pro-style passer with the ability to get it done on the ground if needed. His commitment marked one of the biggest victories in Texas recruiting
  3. Photo: @0fficial_evan Texas’s loss to TCU was upsetting, to say the least. With Oklahoma struggling, and Sam Ehlinger looking to make a Heisman run, 2020 was an optimal year for the Longhorns to make their case for inclusion into the College Football Playoffs. Alas, Gary Patterson got the best of Texas and Tom Herman... again. While the loss still stings for Longhorn faithful, the future is still glaringly bright for Texas Football. A lot of that excitement can be attributed to future Longhorn and 2022 recruit Quinn Ewers. Ewers is highly regarded as one of, if not the, best pla
  4. The last commitment Tom Herman and the Longhorns received was from was Austin High’s three-star quarterback Charles Wright back on August 22. Now, more than a month later, Texas lands its 18th commit in the class and it comes in the form of Strake Jesuit’s, Max Merril. Merill, via the 247Sports Composite, is a three-star offensive tackle. He ranks as the 108th tackle in the 2021 class and the 195th player overall in the state of Texas. The Houston native held offers from Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Indiana, Louisville, and Purdue among others. Two days ago, the crystal balls started r
  5. Drop. The. Mic. To the fans who were slightly disappointed by Texas’s 2021 class, in particular about losing the Brockermeyer twins to Alabama, fear no more. Texas just responded in a colossal manner by landing the nation’s top player, Southlake Carroll quarterback Quinn Ewers, for its class of 2022. At the end of July, Texas landed its first 2022 commitment when Lancaster speedy wide receiver, Phaizon Wilson announced his intention to play at Texas. Two weeks later, we now know who will be throwing the four-star wide receiver deep balls at some point on the 40 Acres. If you don
  6. The Longhorns continue their streak of grabbing solid out-of-state prospects, this time securing a commitment from Pompano Beach, Florida wide receiver, Jaden Alexis. Alexis is a 6’0 180-pound receiver/defensive back and Track and Field star from Monarch High School. He’s a three-star prospect via the 247Sports Composite and is ranked as the 63rd best wide receiver in the 2021 class along with the 63rd best player in Florida via those same rankings. During his breakout junior season, Alexis caught 49 passes for 894 yards (both team-highs) for 8 receiving touchdowns. Alexis was named
  7. Texas got a surprise commitment today as Lancaster wide receiver Phaizon Wilson announced his commitment to the Longhorns. Wilson is a four-star wide receiver via the 247Sports Composite. Via those rankings, he’s the 31st ranked wide receiver for his class and overall the 33rd ranked player in the state of Texas. Nationally he’s the 245th ranked prospect in all of the nation for his class. Wilson becomes the first commit in Texas’ 2022 class. He hails from one of the best programs in Texas, an early favorite in 5A, the Lancaster Tigers. The 6’4 200-pound soon-to-be junior caught
  8. Texas Basketball landed it’s second commit for the class of 2021 when point guard Emarion Ellis gave his verbal to play for Shaka Smart and the Longhorns. The Iowa native received an offer from Texas on July 24 and he wasted no time committing. Four days later he announced his commitment to Texas. Ellis fielded offers from Bryant, Louisiana Tech, and Wisconsin-Milwaukee before he decided on Texas. The Assumption High School star averaged 17.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 2.3 steals per game. Bryant is an under-the-radar prospect that was gaining interest from his hometown I
  9. It’s been a tough couple of weeks in recruiting for Texas. The once top-10 class of 2021 has now been pushed outside that group. Texas also lost out on the Brockermeyer twins, five-star tackle Tommy and four-star center James. Texas gained a commitment from three-star tight end, Landen King from Atascocita back on April 26. Less than a month later on May 22, he decommitted. A few weeks later he decided to take his talents to Auburn. While athlete Juan Davis is expected to translate into a tight end, King’s decommitment left a void at a true tight end. That all changed, as Texas just secur
  10. Texas lost out on twin linemen James and Tommy Brockermeyer. James is a four-star center via the 247Sports Composite while Tommy is a five-star tackle. They’re both ranked as the number one players at their respective positions. The news was disheartening, to say the least, as Texas was in the driver’s seat for a long time to grab the star-studded set of twins. The news of them committing to Alabama over Texas also pushed the Longhorns outside of the top-10 in the 247Sports class of 2021 rankings. Four-star tackle Hayden Conner from Katy Taylor is the only offensive lineman that Texa
  11. Recruiting defines college football success. Fans wait on every breath to see which prospects their school will land. Where will the five-stars go? Who won’t pan out? Who’s the diamond in the rough? Recruiting is an essential part of college sports, and a good recruiting class versus a great one can be the difference between an eight-win season and a playoff appearance. The Longhorns have had some memorable classes, but below are the five best in modern Texas Football history. 5. Class of 2010 – What Mack Brown was able to land in 2010 is something to marvel at. Of the 25
  12. The Texas Longhorns are stocking up on baseball talent for the future. The 2022 class has earned recent commitments from pitcher Jared Thomas (Waxahachie) and catcher Rylan Galvan (Sinton.) They have also secured commitments from 2023 shortstop/pitcher Lane Allen (Guyer) and infielder Brayden Randle (Rockwall). The stretch of recruiting that Texas has been on has been nothing short of impressive. The 40 Acres is a place that baseball players want to be. Especially new commit, Brenner Cox. “I chose Texas because it’s the best baseball program in the nation. The history along with
  13. Head coach Shaka Smart and the Texas Basketball program landed their first commitment in the 2021 class, in 6’9 power forward Keeyan Ietjere. In 2019, Texas had the 17th ranked class nationally via 247Sports. They landed three four-star commits Will Baker (Austin Westlake) Kai Jones (New Hampshire) and Donovan Williams (Elkins.) In the 2020 class, they’ve landed just one commit thus far, but it came from five-star top prospect Greg Brown. Two months later, Itejere becomes the first to commit to Smart’s 2021 class. Keeyan Itejere is a 6’9 190-pound power forward from Grace Christian S
  14. In mid-October of 2019, Texas secured the commitment of arguably the best middle-distance runner in the state of Texas. Graydon Morris, from Aledo, announced his intention to run track for the University of Texas for the next four years. “I chose UT because I wanted a coach and team that I felt comfortable around and that I could trust. I know a lot of the guys that are on the team already, and from my first phone call with Watson, I noticed this calm and humble demeanor. He was very straight forward In the recruiting process, and there was a genuineness that allowed for that trust to ins
  15. The class of 2020 was vital in terms of signing elite secondary talent. Texas landed four-star safeties Xavion Alford and Jerrin Thompson from Shadow Creek and Lufkin respectively. They also secured a pair of four-star cornerbacks in Kitan Crawford and transfer Jahdae Barron from John Tyler and Pflugerville Connally, respectively. The class of 2021 landed an elite secondary prospect of its own when four-star cornerback Ishmael Ibraheem out of Kimball High School (Dallas, TX) announced his commitment to the Longhorns via his twitter. Ibraheem joins a talented Texas 2021 class in which
