Nov. 5 delivered a huge win for head coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas football to finally get a road triumph over a ranked foe. Texas got a much-needed win on the road in Week 10 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium over head coach Chris Klieman and the No. 13 ranked Kansas State Wildcats by the final score of 34-27.

This win over Kansas State marks what is likely the biggest win for the Longhorns under the direction of Sark as the head coach.

And while I wouldn’t necessarily say that this is the “marquee win” that most Longhorns fans wanted out of Sark over the course of his first two seasons as head coach, this could still be something that changes the trajectory of the program. This is the type of win that can help Texas right the ship for good on the road moving forward.

It should also help to inspire the confidence that some of the other notable issues that plagued Sark in the last 14 months or so are behind him (i.e. blowing double-digit second-half leads and losing to ranked Big 12 teams).

Texas should be able to feel the impact of these types of wins on the recruiting trail in the near future, between keeping ties with the current commits in the 2023 and 2024 classes and building momentum with other top priorities.

Here’s a look at three key Texas recruits/commits that were impressed by the win over Kansas State in Week 10.

One of the most active Texas commits on social media this weekend during Texas’ win over Kansas State was the highly touted four-star Harker Heights (TX) interior offensive lineman Jaydon Chatman. The highest-rated O-Line commit in the Longhorns 2023 class seemed to like what he saw on the field from the Longhorns over the weekend.

Following Texas’ win over Kansas State, Chatman quote tweeted the “Road Dub” post from the football team’s official Twitter account with the Hook’em hand sign emoji.

That was also one of a number of Texas and Texas-related tweets that Chatman was liking throughout the game and in the hours following the win.

It’s really good to see someone like Chatman locked in with the Texas game during the weekend when most other recruits were focused on some of the big affairs going on around the country, especially in the SEC.

There were a number of Texas commits and priority recruits that were either in attendance for or closely following, the Tennessee-Georgia and LSU-Alabama games. And while that was expected heading into the weekend, it’s nice to see the Texas commits (such as Chatman) that were more closely following the Longhorns-Wildcats game on Nov. 5.
