Texas football picked up its third commitment of the week in the 2024 recruiting class on June 22, with the highly touted four-star Phoenix (AZ) Mountain Pointe running back announcing his pledge. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff are now up to five commitments in the 2024 recruiting class ahead of what could be the biggest official visit weekend of the offseason, starting June 23.

Clark is the first running back to commit to the Longhorns 2024 class. He is one of two top priority out-of-state running back recruits for RB coach Tashard Choice and the Longhorns in the 2024 class this summer.

The other top priority out-of-state prospect at the position for the Longhorns is the top-ranked running back recruit in the nation in the 2024 class, IMG Academy five-star Jerrick Gibson. Choice and the Longhorns just so happen to be hosting Gibson on an official visit this weekend.

Who’s next up for Texas football in the 2024 class after landing 4-Star RB Christian Clark?

Texas could have at least one or two other commits among the official visitors this weekend in the 2024 class. With that in mind, here’s a prediction of the next 2024 recruit to commit to the Longhorns after Clark on June 22.

Jordan Washington, TE

Texas top tight end target on the board in the 2024 class this summer is the rising three-star 6-foot-4 and 220-pound Houston (TX) Langham Creek product Jordan Washington. The skilled receiving tight end out of Houston started trending in Texas’ favor almost immediately after the Longhorns offered in early May.

Washington had a successful official visit last weekend with special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks, standout junior tight end JT Sanders, and the Longhorns. Banks has a good relationship with Washington, and Sanders did a nice job connecting with the potent receiving tight end during the official visit last weekend.

Earlier this week, the news surfaced that Washington will announce July 4. The decision will likely come down to Texas and the Texas A&M Aggies, with the Longhorns currently holding the lead after the successful official visit last weekend.
