2. Commit of another Big 12 school is flipped
There’s nothing more that this 2019 Texas football recruiting class would like to do than flip a key commit from another Big 12 conference foe. With the few positional needs Texas has left in this class, other Big 12 classes can be a fertile recruiting ground for anything left to add at this point.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys stick out as a recruiting class that could be opportune for the Horns to flip a commit from. Oklahoma State managed to get a four-star Katy, TX, running back that would’ve been huge for this 2019 class for the Horns. Katy High School standout running back Deondrick Glass chose Oklahoma State over Texas and the Alabama Crimson Tide.
It would take a massive effort from head coach Tom Herman to be able to flip the commit of someone like Glass. He seems pretty set on Oklahoma State at this point, but it is something this coaching staff is capable of pulling off. Glass isn’t the only commit that the Horns could target to flip late in this recruiting cycle, though.
An underrated 5-foot-6 three-star running back commit of the Texas Tech Red Raiders is someone who Texas could target. That three-star rusher is Chux Nwabuko, and he could bring a very different dynamic to the table for the Texas offense and special teams. Those are just two of the prospects that would be good for the Horns to try and bring to the Forty Acres from a different Big 12 program.
