Texas football landed its eighth commit in the 2024 recruiting class on June 28, with the highly touted four-star North Richland Hills (TX) Richland interior offensive lineman Daniel Cruz. Six of the eight commitments in Texas’ 2024 recruiting class have come within the last 10 days alone.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns staff found a ton of momentum on the recruiting trail in the last few weeks. The two big official visit weekends this month helped to build that momentum on the recruiting trail in the 2024 class.

Each of the six commitments for the Longhorns in this class has come since the first day of these two big official visit weekends (June 16). Texas landed four-star Scottsdale (AZ) Desert Mountain cornerback Santana Wilson to kick off the momentum the Longhorns still have building in this class.

Who’s next to commit to Texas football in the 2024 class after 4-Star IOL Daniel Cruz?

We expect plenty more commits to be on the way for the Longhorns 2024 class in the coming days and weeks. Here’s a prediction of the next to commit to the Longhorns 2024 class after Cruz pledged to Texas on June 28.

Decision Date: July 1

On June 28, the touted four-star IMG Academy safety Jordon Johnson-Rubell announced on social media that he will be making his decision on July 1 at 2 p.m. CT via a live stream on YouTube. Johnson-Rubell will decide between four schools; the Michigan Wolverines, TCU Horned Frogs, Ohio State Buckeyes, and Texas.

Texas is the overwhelming favorite in this recruitment heading into Johnson-Rubell’s decision day this weekend. Safeties coach Blake Gideon and cornerbacks coach Terry Joseph have built fantastic relationships with Johnson-Rubell and his family during his recruitment.

It also helps that Johnson-Rubell’s mom wants him to come back closer to home (he is a native of Fort Worth, TX) for his collegiate decision. All these factors bode well for Texas, as we’re just a couple of days out from Johnson-Rubell’s commitment.
