In roughly 12 hours, the 2023 Texas football recruiting class will be able to lock in commits in the mix on the first National Signing Day.

On the morning of Dec. 21, the Early Signing Period will begin. And it looks like most of the commitments to the Longhorns 2023 class will be signing on the dotted line on NSD1. But there is still one key commit in the 2023 class that is uncertain heading into signing day (5-Star Westgate safety Derek Williams).

Heading into signing day, head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns have commitments from 21 high school recruits in the 2023 class. And there are probably going to be a few more spots that Sark and his staff look to fill in this class before the cycle is officially in the books.

Which commits will Texas football pick up in the 2023 class on NSD1?

A few of the spots are probably going to be filled in the coming days and weeks with outstanding priority recruits for the 2023 class. Here’s a look at a prediction of every commitment that the Longhorns get in the 2023 class on signing day.

Tyler Scott, S

Among the priority defensive recruits for the Longhorns 2023 class, the most highly anticipated announcement on NSD1 could be coming from the fast-rising three-star Pebblebrook (GA) defensive back Tyler Scott.

The Georgia native is set to announce his decision on Dec. 21. And it looks like this decision is going to boil down to the Tennessee Volunteers, Auburn Tigers, Alabama Crimson Tide, and Texas. Granted, Auburn and Texas look to have the best shot at signing Scott on Dec. 21.

I don’t believe there are many more underrated safety recruits among the non-blue-chip prospects in the 2023 class than Scott. The 6-foot-2 and 190-pound DB had a sensational senior season in high school. And he’s got the scheme versatility to come in his first or second year in college at corner or safety.

Of the three recruits on this list, Scott is probably the least likely to end up at Texas. But Texas made a big impression on Scott and his family during his visit to Austin last weekend. And Texas has as good of shot as any school to beat out the presumed favorite heading into signing day, Auburn.
