4-Star DL Jordan Renaud says Texas football is ‘powerhouse program’

It is getting close to the time where new head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff will turn the focus almost exclusively to the 2023 Texas football recruiting class. That means that Texas needs to get the 2023 class off the ground in the not too distant future. Texas has yet to land its first commit that stuck in the 2023 class.

In fact, the only commit that Sark and the Longhorns ever held in the 2023 class was more than three months ago with the elite five-star El Campo running back Rueben Owens. But a bunch of other key 2023 Longhorns targets among high school prospects are coming to the forefront of late.

One of them was in action in a big game this weekend with Tyler Legacy High School against the Allen Eagles around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex on Sep. 17. Tyler Legacy came up with the loss against Allen entering the weekend, but it was a close game.

A key Texas target of the 2023 recruiting class was in action on Sep. 17 with Tyler Legacy in four-star defensive lineman Jordan Renaud. And following this loss for Renaud and Tyler Legacy to Allen on Sep. 17, Inside Texas talked with him about his recruitment with the Longhorns (paid content).

4-Star DL Jordan Renaud continues to speak highly of Texas football

Renaud said that Texas was an “amazing atmosphere” and that “Sark is an amazing coach”. Most notably, he mentioned that he thinks that Texas is a “powerhouse program” that is needing to rally around this new coaching staff to right the ship.

On campus for a visit in the season opener in a win at home over Louisiana, Renaud seemingly came away with a positive impression from Texas.

A key early target to watch for the Longhorns 2023 class, Renaud is one of the top defensive linemen that holds an offer from this program. He ranks as the nation’s No. 39 2023 high school prospect, No. 9 defensive lineman, and No. 7 prospect out of Texas (247Sports Composite).

Texas is one of more than 20 schools that have offered Renaud up to this point. But it looks like Texas is one of the schools that is higher up on his list. He has spoken highly of Texas in the past few months, which could be a good sign of things to come in his recruitment.

The Longhorns are on fire on the recruiting trail right now recruiting along the defensive line. Texas has seven blue-chip commits along the defensive line in the 2022 class, and we’ll see if this coaching staff can carry the momentum over to the 2023 class in the trenches.
