Bravion Rogers, CB

Texas fans definitely got a recruit on their radar for the 2023 class early this week when the news dropped that highly touted four-star La Grange cornerback Bravion Rogers backed off his commitment from Texas A&M. Rogers was one of the highest-rated commits in the Aggies 2023 class prior to his Aug. 8 de-commitment.

As the most high-profile de-commitment around the college football recruiting landscape early this week, the Rogers news sent shockwaves around the state of Texas (and Louisiana for that matter).

And while Texas does have some extremely highly touted commits in the 2023 class at the moment, it’s hard to imagine that Rogers wouldn’t have a spot if he wanted in. It is absolutely mind-boggling to think about a Longhorns 2023 defensive back class with the likes of Rogers, five-star Westgate (LA) safety Derek Williams, five-star South Oak Cliff cornerback Malik Muhammad, etc.

Moreover, prior to Rogers’ April commitment to Fisher and the Aggies, Texas was definitely one of the schools prioritizing him in a big way on the recruiting trail. And while Texas continued to try to push for Rogers after he committed to the Aggies during spring ball, nothing really amounted from those efforts from Sark and cornerbacks coach Terry Joseph.

I will say that most of the smoke coming from the Rogers recruitment following his de-commitment this week from the Aggies is tied to new head coach Brian Kelly and the LSU Tigers. At this point, it does look like LSU is the favorite in the newly re-opened race to land a commitment from Rogers. But Texas would still be wise to at least kick the tires with this recruitment now that Rogers has backed off his A&M commitment.
