How can we breakdown the 2020 Texas football recruiting class now that this past cycle is in the rear view mirror post-National Signing Day?
With National Signing Day now officially in the books, the 2020 Texas football recruiting class is complete. Texas landed yet another top 10 ranked recruiting class in the nation, the third straight year head coach Tom Herman was able to do so. The difference for this recruiting cycle compared to the last two was the fact that they didn’t get another top three ranked class in the nation.
There was little to no chance that Texas was going to haul in a top three ranked 2020 recruiting class in the nation given the timing of the turnover of Herman’s coaching staff. The month of December was all about Texas giving Herman a second chance to piece together a solid coaching staff.
More action occurred on this National Signing Day than in year’s past for Texas. Herman saw two big additions on Feb. 4 and 5 that added to his 2020 recruiting class and solidified their place among the top 10 rated classes in the nation.
Texas signed 19 prospects in this 2020 recruiting class, all of which are coming out of high school. There are eight early enrollees, which seems like a smaller number. But when you compare the number of early enrollees to the overall number of signees, then it is actually a decent percentage. Getting a double-digit number of early enrollees to campus is usually the goal. Getting eight of 19 is still a good number, though.
Here’s a look into the definitive three takeaways from the 2020 recruiting cycle for the Texas Longhorns football program post-National Signing Day.
