Texas continues to roll on the recruiting trail since the commitment of Arch Manning. Over the past 48 hours, the Longhorns have added two more commitments to the 2023 class from safety Derek Williams and defensive end Billy Walton.
Williams, a 5-star safety out of Louisiana, chose Texas over offers from Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and more. Walton, who was originally committed to Oklahoma State, decommitted on Monday evening before pledging to the Longhorns on Tuesday afternoon. The South Oak Cliff product is ranked as the 50th best edge prospect in the country per the 247sports composite rankings.
Texas is up to 16 commitments in the 2023 class and currently has the 3rd best class in the country per the 247sports composite team rankings.
