Bad news on the recruiting trail arrived for Texas football in the 2024 class on June 20. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian will reportedly no longer be hosting the elite five-star Temple (TX) Lake Belton wide receiver target Micah Hudson on an official visit to Austin this weekend.

A report emerged on the afternoon of June 20 from Jason Suchomel of Orangebloods stating that Hudson is not visiting Texas this weekend after he exchanged texts with the elite wide receiver recruit. Hudson will reportedly be in College Station on June 22 and 23 for the Texas State Championship 7v7 tournament later this week.

Multiple reports in the last week or so have indicated that Hudson planned to make an unofficial trip during his time in College Station to see the Texas A&M Aggies. But it’s clear what the status of those visit plans to Texas A&M are now.

This news comes just a couple of days after the conclusion of Hudson’s official visit to Lubbock last weekend to see the Texas Tech Red Raiders and head coach Joey McGuire. Since the spring, Hudson has been considered a Texas Tech lean.

All the momentum in this recruitment appears to be with the Red Raiders upon him canceling the official visit to Austin this weekend.

Despite Hudson canceling his official visit plans to Austin this weekend, Texas’ staff isn’t going to give up on this recruitment. Sark, new wide receivers coach Chris Jackson, and the Longhorns will fight through the finish line with Hudson’s recruitment.

Hudson is that caliber of wide receiver recruit.

Even without Hudson making his way to Austin this weekend, there is still a loaded group of official visitors for the Longhorns starting June 23. Texas will host other elite recruits such as five-star IMG Academy running back Jerrick Gibson, five-star Duncanville edge rusher Colin Simmons, five-star Waco (TX) Connally cornerback Kobe Black, and four-star Temple (TX) Lake Belton cornerback Selman Bridges, among others.
