Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian landed their 15th commitment in the 2024 recruiting class, and third along the defensive line, on July 20 with the highly sought-after four-star Orlando (FL) Jones defensive lineman D’antre Robinson.

The gigantic 6-foot-4 and 315-pound Florida native Robinson picked Texas over offers from the Florida Gators, Florida State Seminoles, Miami Hurricanes, Alabama Crimson Tide, Ohio State Buckeyes, LSU Tigers, and Georgia Bulldogs. Texas ultimately beat out the Gators in a hard-fought battle for Robinson’s commitment on the recruiting trail this summer.

Robinson jumping in this class gives the Longhorns a whopping 13 2024 commitments since the start of official visit season. This big run on the recruiting trail for Sark and the Longhorns staff in the 2024 class started on June 17, when four-star Scottsdale (AZ) Desert Mountain cornerback Santana Wilson committed to Texas.

Who’s next for Texas football in the 2024 class after landing 4-Star DL D’antre Robinson?

And it looks like the Longhorns are far from done with this big run on the recruiting trail in the 2024 class late this summer. Here’s a prediction of the next recruit to commit to the Longhorns 2024 class after Texas landed Robinson on July 20.

TJ Lindsey, DL

After getting Robinson in the 2024 class, there are a couple of remaining priority defensive linemen for the Longhorns heading into the fall. The first is the touted four-star IMG Academy defensive lineman TJ Lindsey.

The former Bryant (AR) standout defensive lineman has Texas high on his list after a successful official visit to Austin last month. The race to land a commitment from Lindsey will come down to Texas and the Auburn Tigers.

Auburn has made a big push in this recruitment this summer. The Tigers are probably the school prioritizing Lindsey the most since his official visit to Auburn on the weekend of June 2.

Lindsey is expected to decide the start of his senior season at IMG Academy next month. If Texas pushes harder in the latter days of this recruitment, it could land Lindsey’s commitment over Auburn.
