There is a ton of movement occurring on the trail right now for the 2023 Texas football recruiting class. On Nov. 7, Texas lost a commitment from the touted four-star Arlington Seguin defensive back Jamel Johnson. We also saw the elite five-star Denton Ryan linebacker Anthony Hill de-commit from the Texas A&M Aggies.

And some other significant news came about early this week with the abundance of analyst forecasts entered projecting a flip of the highly touted four-star Austin Westlake edge rusher and Oklahoma Sooners commit Colton Vasek to Texas. On Nov. 7, multiple recruiting analysts/reporters entered picks with moderate to high confidence projecting Vasek to flip his commitment to Texas.

Three experts entered 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions projecting Vasek’s commitment to Texas on Nov. 7. Those three were Steve Wiltfong, Brandon Drumm, and Parker Thune.

Gerry Hamilton of Inside Texas/On3 also put in an RPM pick this week projecting Vasek to flip his commitment from Oklahoma to Texas.

That’s four notable recruiting experts that have forecasts projecting Vasek to Texas. And all of forecasts have a pretty high level of confidence.

This is a good sign of things to come for Texas in pursuit of Vasek’s commitment. Texas has continuously pressed Vasek to flip his commitment this fall.

Vasek is on campus a lot this fall, and that trend is likely to continue for the next couple of months. He visited Texas for two games already this season. And it looks like he will probably be on the visitor list for this weekend as Texas hosts the undefeated TCU Horned Frogs at DKR in Austin.

Oklahoma’s struggles on the field this fall have also contributed to the rumors swirling around Vasek that his commitment to the Sooners might not be firm. The Sooners lost another game over the weekend, falling just shy of the Baylor Bears at home.

Following the de-commitment of Johnson this week, Texas now holds pledges from 20 recruits in the 2023 class. But it looks like there will be some 2023 recruits on the move that could land on the Forty Acres in the near future, including Vasek.
