The elite five-star Temple Lake Belton wide receiver Micah Hudson is possibly the top priority at the position for the Longhorns in the 2024 class this fall. Hudson is a scorching hot commodity on the recruiting trail right now, but the Longhorns are in a good spot early for the in-state wideout.

Some would even say that there is some momentum working in favor of Texas in the race to land a commitment from Hudson.

But I would say to slow your roll on that disucssion if you believe Texas could soon get a pledge from Hudson.

There is still a lot of work that new wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Brennan Marion and the Longhorns have to put in on the recruiting trail to set the pace in the recruitment of Hudson.

Texas is battling the Texas A&M Aggies in state and the Ohio State Buckeyes, Clemson Tigers, Tennessee Volunteers, Georgia, and LSU (among others) out of state. Texas A&M is a serious threat early on in the recruitment of Hudson, as are Ohio State and Clemson.

But it’s still too early to count out some other out-of-state schools that are newer arrivals among the top group for Hudson.

Moreover, this will be the second time that Hudson visits for a game weekend that Texas is involved in. He was on campus in Austin for the game weekend between Texas and Alabama on Sep. 10. And that seemed to make quite the impression on him.

If Texas can get a win over Oklahoma while getting star sophomore wide receiver Xavier Worthy involved early and often, that would go a long way to continue to help the Longhorns’ case to make a move in Hudson’s recruitment.
