Texas football is due for another busy week on the recruiting trail for the 2024 class just after the conclusion of two big official visit weekends on the Forty Acres. After landing a half-dozen commitments in the 2024 class in the last two weeks, Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian are on a roll heading into what promises to be a big weekend on the recruiting trail.

There are two important announcements to watch pertaining to priority targets of the Longhorns 2024 class on July 1. Four-star IMG Academy safety Jordon Johnson-Rubell and four-star Lucas (TX) Lovejoy wide receiver Parker Livingstone will make their decisions on July 1.

And then, roughly a dozen other targets of the Longhorns 2024 class will be expected to announce their decisions at some point in the next six weeks.

Texas will continue to stay hot on the recruiting trail in the 2024 class next month. There is a good chance the Longhorns could have three-quarters of the spots in this recruiting class filled by the end of July.

With all this in mind, here’s a look at four blue-chip 2024 recruits trending to the Longhorns in July.

One of the top priority out-of-state defensive back recruits for the Longhorns in the 2024 class, Johnson-Rubell, has a decision date coming up this weekend. Johnson-Rubell is a Texas lean heading into his July 1 commitment date after a successful official visit to the Forty Acres last weekend.

Multiple recruiting services have numerous forecasts the last few weeks projecting Johnson-Rubell’s commitment to Texas.

There was some speculation ahead of Johnson-Rubell’s July 1 decision date that the TCU Horned Frogs and Florida Gators could be making a late push. But I remain confident that Texas is the heavy favorite to land Johnson-Rubell’s commitment as the second-blue chip defensive back pledge in the last two weeks for the Longhorns.
