Texas Longhorns Football Recruiting Update

In Texas, there is no offseason for football. Each week, we’ll provide a weekly update on what is going on in Texas Longhorns football recruiting.

Texas loses 2 recruits:

After the last junior day, there were no commitments. The feeling was tense but many that follow the Longhorns were pretty confident that we would eventually hear good news regarding their commitments. That would never come to fruition.

Defensive Tackle Deshawn Washington committed to the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday. He was at Texas’s junior day last weekend and tweeted out a picture of him in a Longhorns uniform and talked about how he grew up a Texas fan. He had an offer from the Longhorns but still wanted to see the Aggies. He got an offer from the Aggies as well and he decided to commit. The Aggies also got Dylan Sumner-Gardner who also had a Texas offer. That makes 5 prospects that had Texas offers that committed to Texas A&M. This is uncharted territory for Texas fans.

But not all hope is lost!

At Saturday’s open practice, Texas recruits Jamal Adams and Soloman Thomas were both on the sidelines. Both are 4 star prospects on the defensive side of the ball. While Texas A&M has a ton of momentum, getting these two blue chip prospects would help the Texas Longhorns still maintain a stronghold on much of the top talent in Texas.
