Blake Frazier, OT

A recruit to keep an eye on that was on campus this weekend for the Texas-ULM game was the rising and unranked 2024 Vandegrift offensive tackle Blake Frazier. The local Austin product made the short drive to DKR to get his first unofficial visit to see Texas.

And this was certainly a good environment for Frazier to catch some live-game action for this Texas offensive line. Texas was able to put some of the young among the starters along this offensive line on display in impressive fashion this weekend with the likes of interior offensive lineman Cole Hutson and offensive tackle Kelvin Banks both standing out.

This was the first unofficial visit of the fall for Frazier. He had a few unofficial trips he took during the summer to see the Clemson Tigers, Texas A&M Aggies, and Michigan Wolverines.

Spencer Shannon, TE

One of the two tight end commits in the Longhorns 2023 class, three-star Mater Dei product Spencer Shannon, was on campus for an unofficial visit this weekend. In his first visit to Austin since the summer, Shannon was seemingly happy with the impression he came away from after this trip.

It was also important to hear what Shannon had to say about this Texas win after the game. According to the postgame recruit reaction notes from Inside Texas this weekend (paid content), Shannon said it was great to “see the tight end usage” for the Longhorns in this win over ULM.

He was likely referring to the big game that we saw from breakout sophomore tight end Ja’Tavion Sanders, who led the team with six catches for 85 receiving yards and one touchdown catch.
