As maybe the biggest month on the trail for the 2022 Texas football recruiting class of this calendar year begins, new head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff get set to prepare for the first weekend of visits. Texas will get the first set of official visits on the books since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic on campus on June 4.
Some of the top targets for the Longhorns 2022 and 2023 classes will get to be on campus this coming weekend, giving Sark and his newly formed coaching staff a chance to make an unparalleled impression. This comes at the right time too, as Texas could use a jolt in momentum on the recruiting trail for their 2022 and 2023 classes.
Among the more hotly contested prospects to watch this month that is set to visit the Forty Acres is the elite five-star North Shore 6-foot-1 and 180-pound cornerback Denver Harris. As potentially the top 2022 target that plays on the defensive side of the ball at this point in time for Sark and the Longhorns, Harris feels like a “can’t miss” prospect for them.
Texas does look to be trending in the right direction with Harris at the moment, though.
Texas football making progress in pursuit of 5-Star CB Denver Harris
According to a report from 247Sports on June 1 (paid content), Texas and the Alabama Crimson Tide are currently “leading the pack” in pursuit of Harris. The other schools that were noted to watch among the frontrunners for Harris, just behind Texas and Alabama, are the LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies.
Texas, Alabama, Texas A&M, and LSU, are the four schools that are on the schedule to host Harris for official visits this month. Texas A&M gets the first official visit with Harris, set for June 4. And then it is LSU the following weekend on June 11, Texas on June 18, and Alabama rounds it all out this month on June 25.
Official visits are likely to have a lot to do with how the recruitment of Harris turns out. Clearly, Texas needs to make the right impression to win his interests over to coming to Austin.
Moreover, Harris ranks as the nation’s No. 6 2022 high school prospect, No. 3 cornerback, and No. 2 prospect out of Texas (247Sports Composite). And the Top247 ranks him as the nation’s No. 20 high school prospect, No. 3 cornerback, and No. 5 prospect out of Texas.
