An abundance of headlines and shocking news cycles couldn’t stop for the Texas football recruiting class for the past month.
A time of the year that used to be extremely entertaining and impactful, National Signing Day, died down a bit the last two recruiting cycles thanks to the installment of the Early Signing Period. The first time the Early Signing Period came into effect was in December 2017, and it showed that most prospects wanted to commit and sign their National Letter of Intent before National Signing Day. That proved to be true for each of the past two Texas football recruiting classes.
The only commit in the 2019 Texas football recruiting class that didn’t sign his letter of intent during the Early Signing Period for this cycle was four-star Houston, TX, offensive tackle Javonne Shepherd. His recruitment is still open. But, Texas football already has more than 20 commits signed down in the 2019 recruiting. A handful of those signed recruits enrolled early to participate in spring camp too.
There’s so much intrigue building around this 2019 Texas football recruiting class that National Signing Day should be able to provide a lot of answers fans might not have anticipated heading into the Early Signing Period.
According to the 247Sports Team Composite Rankings, Texas football owns the No. 3 ranking in the nation for this recruiting cycle. Texas football also holds the top spot right now in the Big 12 rankings.
