Manage episode 350488725 series 3335321
Longhorn fans had anticipated Early Signing Day more than they anticipated Christmas and while I don't necessarily condone that ... I understand. The day couldn't have gone better for the Longhorns as they watched commits such as Arch Manning, Cedric Baxter, Johntay Cook and Anthony Hill sign on the dotted line. While other schools were getting their top recruits poached and dealing with uncertainty, all 22 commits to Texas signed on the dotted line with little to no drama. On top of that, Texas was able to land a huge commitment of four star edge player Tausili Akana out of Utah, beating out Oklahoma and Colorado for his recruitment. Texas didn't just win in the high school space, they also picked up a corner with two years of starting experience in the ACC in Gavin Holmes from Wake Forest. We heard about potential flips, whether it being Ryan Niblett to Houston, Cedric Baxter to Florida State, Anthony Hill back to Texas A&M, or Derrick Williams to Miami. When the dust settled, all of those players signed and pledged allegiance to Steve Sarkisian and his coaching staff at the 40 acres. This 2022 and 2023 class has the chance to be special, to put Texas back on the map and in that tier where they belong. When you look at the top of the sport, you see Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State and Michigan. At the top of the Big 12 we've seen the likes of Oklahoma, Baylor and now TCU. It won't be long before you're seeing burnt orange. Hook Em
