Texas football kicked off its big official visit weekend with a bang in the 2024 recruiting class on June 24 with a commitment from the elite five-star IMG Academy running back Jerrick Gibson. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian landed their sixth commitment in the 2024 recruiting class this weekend, with Gibson announcing his pledge to the staff and on social media on the morning of June 24.

Sark and the Longhorns staff have been on fire on the recruiting trail in the last week. Texas has landed commitments from four blue-chip recruits in the 2024 class since the big official visit weekend last week. It started with Texas nabbing four-star Scottsdale (AZ) Desert Mountain cornerback Santana Wilson on June 17.

Texas has also brought in four-star Spring Branch (TX) Smithson Valley wide receiver Freddie Dubose Jr. and four-star Phoenix (AZ) Mountain Pointe running back Christian Clark in the last week.

It feels like the action is just getting started on the recruiting trail for the Longhorns in the 2024 class after landing four talented blue chips since last weekend. Here’s a prediction of the Longhorns’ next commitment in the 2024 class after reeling in Gibson on June 24.

Parker Livingstone, WR

Four-star Lucas (TX) Lovejoy wide receiver Parker Livingstone was considered a Texas lean for a few months. His decision date is set for July 1, and Texas is considered the overwhelming favorite.

Any doubts that Texas might not be prioritizing Livingstone in this class should be put to bed with the way this staff is recruiting him during his official visit this weekend. Inside Texas reported on June 24 (paid content) that Livingstone is hosted by freshman edge rusher Colton Vasek and junior defensive back Michael Taaffe. During his official visit this weekend, he’s also connected with true freshman quarterback Arch Manning.

Texas reportedly remains in the “strongest position to land” Livingstone roughly one week before his commitment date. And from all we’ve heard during his official visit this weekend, I remain confident that Texas will be Livingstone’s destination.
