  1. Top-tier commitments to the Texas Longhorns have been plentiful since Steve Sarkisian took over as the head coach in Austin. Among the recent commits was four-star wide receiver Evan Stewart of Frisco Liberty High School. Thanks to Stewart and others, Texas now has the fourth-ranked class nationally for the class of 2022 via the 247Sports Composite. The class consists of four five Top-100 players in the country including five-star quarterback Maalik Murphy, the aforementioned Stewart, four-star running back Jaydon Blue, and four-star wide receiver Armani Winfield. The offense is comi
  2. Today the Texas Longhorns earned the commitment of another 2022 prospect in Arlington Martin interior linebacker Trevell Johnson. Johnson is the second Martin linebacker to join the Texas program in the past two years. Last year, Texas earned the commitment of four-star Martin linebacker, Morice Blackwell. Now, they add his teammate. Johnson is a three-star prospect via the 247Sports Composite. He’s the 21st ranked inside linebacker in his class in the nation, and the 65th ranked player overall in the state of Texas. In his high school career , Johnson thus far has recorded 208
  3. National Signing Day saw the Texas Longhorns pull in a solid Top-20 recruiting class. As Tom Herman mentioned in his Signing Day Press Conference, the Longhorns expected more commitments to come in between then and February. One big one came on Christmas Day through the commitment of Keithron Lee. The Rudded High School wide receiver announced his top-eight schools via his Twitter at the end of November. That list included Baylor, Ole Miss, SMU, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas Tech, and Utah. Today, Lee makes it official, he’s headed to Texas. Lee will only have to travel two hours from hi
  4. Photo: Greg Hammer for HornSports The Texas Longhorns are once again a top-20 overall class in the nation as they entered today with the 17th ranked class via 247Sports. The Longhorns lost some commitments along the way, most notably five-star athlete Billy Bowman, but they gained some elite players recently as well. Headed into the day, Texas had 18 hard commits for the class of 2021. They had a couple of welcome surprises today, as they added a graduate transfer and another player that was previously uncommitted. Below is a recap of the 19 athletes who signed with the Longhorns on
  5. 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,
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
