It’s not only the towering and potent 6-foot-6 and 350-pound Frisco Wakeland interior offensive lineman Connor Stroh that remains active on social media during and after each and every Texas game, but also his family. Throughout the season, Stroh and his family are regular visitors to the Forty Acres.

And it looks like the Texas-Kansas State game had the full attention of Stroh and his camp over the weekend.

As is the case with Chatman, it’s good to see some of these Texas commits that are getting attention from other schools this fall so locked into what this team is doing on the field. And with Texas playing well along the offensive line in the win over Kansas State, I would imagine this game was very impactful to the likes of Stroh and Chatman.

According to a report from Justin Wells of Inside Texas on Nov. 7 (paid content), Stroh liked “everything” about what he saw from Texas on the field on Nov. 5 in the win over Kansas State.

It’s worth noting that Stroh reportedly watched this game “from start to finish”. He also mentioned that the “OL looked ready” and that “good teams figure out how to win”.

I must say that with some of the other Texas OL commits in the 2023 class getting attention from competing schools on the recruiting trail this fall, seeing the engagement from Chatman and Stroh on gameday is huge.

At this point in the fall, the TCU Horned Frogs are putting its full attention and effort into O-Line recruiting to try and flip three-star Texas IOL commit Andre Cojoe. There are also some other schools giving more attention to the likes of the former three-star TCU OT commit Trevor Goosby this fall.

For the time being, though, it looks like offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns are doing a nice job of maintaining solid relationships with the O-Line commits in the 2023 class.
