At this point, we are only a few days out from figuring out the destiny for the 2019 Texas football recruiting class in the Early Signing Period.
The 2019 Texas football recruiting class has one of its most significant stretches of days of the entire calendar year coming up later this month. The Early Signing Period will test how this 2019 Texas football recruiting class can hold things together among the elite programs in the nation. This recruiting cycle was mostly friendly to head coach Tom Herman, but he still has some work to do to seal up this 2019 class.
Texas football recruiting landed itself the No. 6 ranked 2019 class in the nation so far, according to the 247Sports Team Composite Rankings. Before its two most recent decommits, the 2019 Texas football recruiting class ranked in the top five in the nation. Since the recruitments opened back up for two of the Horns four-star commits, some additional storylines emerged for this class.
However, the good news about the two decommits for the 2019 Texas football recruiting class is that it can recover pretty easily from them. The Horns are deep at wide receiver and are set to add more depth to that position group with this recruiting class. Having four-star Oklahoma City, OK, wideout Demariyon Houston decommit hurts but it is something the Horns can bounce back from.
The decommitment of four-star Odessa, TX, athlete Peyton Powell might be even less detrimental to the Horns than Houston’s. Powell was likely either to fit in with the 2019 Texas football recruiting class and freshmen group as a quarterback or wide receiver. Those are the two positions he excelled at with Permian High School.
It seems like the recent decommitments from the 2019 Texas football recruiting class bring about more questions than have been answered of late. Here’s a look at some of the burning questions for the Texas Longhorns just days away from the start of the Early Signing Period.
