Connor Stroh, OT

Another current Texas commit that was impressed by this win for the Longhorns over the Cyclones this weekend was the rapidly improving and sizable three-star Frisco Wakeland offensive tackle Connor Stroh. As usual, Stroh and his camp were busy on social media promoting the Longhorns as he attended yet another game this fall.

Among the current Texas commits, Stroh is a regular visitor on campus this fall. And that’s a great sign for the relationship between offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the rest of this Longhorns staff with Stroh and his camp.

Ka’Morreun Pimpton, TE

An important visitor that Sark, special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks and the Longhorns hosted for the Iowa State game this weekend was the vastly underrated three-star Fort Worth North Crowley tight end and Vanderbilt Commodores commit Ka’Morreun Pimpton. The 6-foot-6 and 225-pound Pimpton is starting to rise up recruiting boards around the country, and that was something that caught the attention of the Texas staff recently.

It sounds like Pimpton could be the next 2023 recruit in line to receive a Texas offer before the first signing day. He apparently enjoyed this visit to DKR as he made the not-too-long drive from Fort Worth down to Austin for the Iowa State game.

If Pimpton winds up receiving a Texas offer in the near future, I would put him on flip watch for the next few weeks.

But something else to watch will be the recently-re-scheduled and looming official visit set for Nov. 12 for the matchup against the TCU Horned Frogs at home with the elite five-star Pinnacle (AZ) tight end Duce Robinson. At this point of the cycle, Robinson is clearly the top tight end priority for the Longhorns in the 2023 class, with Pimpton following him.
