The first game of the 2022 season is now in the books for the Texas football program after a dominant 52-10 win over head coach Terry Bowden and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks out of the Sun Belt on Sep. 3. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian downed ULM at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in front of a huge crowd and even some key recruits that were visiting Austin this weekend.

Sark and the Longhorns hosted a single-digit number of visitors among 2023 and 2024 recruits. But there were some important recruits that were on campus this weekend, including a number of commits among the Longhorns’ 2023 and 2024 classes.

There were also a few uncommitted targets of the Longhorns 2024 class that were on campus this weekend.

These targets for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail could pretty easily get overshadowed given the seismic group of visitors that will be on campus next weekend. Texas faces the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide at home on Sep. 10 at DKR. And that visitor list for the Texas-Alabama game should be the biggest of the fall for Sark and the Longhorns.

Visiting recruits for Texas football impressed by this weekend and the win over ULM

Yet, it is still important to note what the impression was that the visiting recruits for Texas this weekend had of the program coming out of the weekend. Here’s a look at five key visiting recruits that were impressed coming out of the win in the opener for Texas over ULM.

One of the recognizable names on campus this weekend among the visiting recruits for the Longhorns was the three-star Frisco Wakeland offensive tackle commit Connor Stroh.

Stroh was one of the summer commits for the Longhorns 2023 class that joined during that wave for this group. Texas landed a commitment from Stroh back on June 26, which came on the same weekend as four other offensive linemen.

In the last couple of months, Stroh has made some real strides to become one of the more improved offensive line commits in the Longhorns 2023 class. And it wouldn’t surprise me if he encroaches on blue-chip territory near the end of his senior season in high school.

Yet, Stroh was clearly having a good time as this weekend was both a time for him to get on campus to visit Texas and celebrate his birthday. He and his family were pretty active on social media, showing off the good time they had on the Forty Acres this weekend.
