Jordan Washington, TE

Decision date: July 4

The top tight end target on the board for special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks and the Longhorns in the 2024 class’s recruitment is about to come to a close next week.

On July 4, the rising three-star Houston (TX) Langham Creek tight end Jordan Washington will decide between the Alabama Crimson Tide, Texas A&M Aggies, and the Longhorns. As with Livingstone and Johnson-Rubell ahead of their decision dates, Washington is a heavy favorite to pick Texas over the competition in early July.

Even some Texas A&M sites, including GigEm247, have reported recently that Washington is a Texas lean since he had a successful official visit to Austin from June 16-18.

Getting Washington in this class became a major priority for Banks and the Longhorns after they missed on four-star Laguna Beach (CA) tight end Ryner Swanson, who committed to the BYU Cougars earlier this month.

The need for Texas to add depth and capable receiving tight ends this cycle makes Washington a great fit in this class.

For all three Texas targets on this list, I am at least 85-90 percent confidence that each will wind up in the Longhorns 2024 class in the next week or so.

Assuming Washington does as is expected and commits to Texas on July 4, Banks and the Longhorns will still have one tight end spot to fill in this class. Texas will reset the tight end big board for the 2024 cycle upon getting Washington in this class next week.
