With Sark, new wide receivers coach Chris Jackson, and the Longhorns holding commitments from two blue-chip wide receiver recruits in the 2024 class (4-Star Parker Livingstone and 4-Star Freddie Dubose Jr.), two top priority targets are remaining at the position this fall. The first is the longtime Texas Tech Red Raiders lean and five-star Temple (TX) Lake Belton wideout Micah Hudson.

While Texas Tech would’ve liked to get Hudson in its 2024 class during the summer, the No. 1 wide receiver recruit in-state for this cycle is still favored to land in Lubbock on signing day in mid-December. But the longer that recruitment continues, the more it favors the Longhorns in their quest to chip away at Texas Tech’s lead with Hudson.

The second top priority wide receiver recruit remaining in the 2024 class for the Longhorns this fall is the elite St. Louis University (MO) five-star Ryan Wingo. The No. 2 wide receiver recruit in the 2024 class in the 247Sports Composite, Wingo, is down to three schools. This recruitment is widely considered a battle between Texas and the Mizzou Tigers, with the Tennessee Volunteers in third place.

Texas hosts Wingo for an unofficial visit next weekend (Sep. 16) for the contest at DKR between the Longhorns and Wyoming Cowboys. The Wyoming game is turning out to be a major recruiting weekend for Sark and the Longhorns staff. Wingo and potentially five-star Timpson (TX) athlete Terry Bussey highlight a rapidly growing visitor list of blue-chip recruits in the 2024 and 2025 classes.

Mizzou grabbed momentum in this recruitment late in the summer. But Texas has a chance to swing momentum back in its favor with Wingo during his visit for the Wyoming game next weekend.
