The matchup against the Wyoming Cowboys will be a huge recruiting weekend for Texas football at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Texas is buzzing on the recruiting trail after the Week 2 colossal win on the road in Tuscaloosa on Sep. 9 under the lights at Bryant-Denny Stadium over the No. 3 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide by double digits.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns will host multiple blue-chip recruits for the Wyoming game this coming weekend. Some of the top recruits visiting Texas for the Wyoming game this weekend are the elite five-star St. Louis University (MO) wide receiver Ryan Wingo, four-star Tampa (FL) Carrollwood Day edge rusher Solomon Williams, and five-star 2025 Lewisville (TX) offensive tackle Michael Fasusi.

5-Star Texas football CB priority Kobe Black reportedly considering visiting this weekend vs. Wyoming

The visitor list is still growing for the Wyoming game this weekend for the Longhorns. One of the top priority recruits to watch that could visit DKR this weekend is the top cornerback target in the 2024 class, Waco (TX) Connally five-star Kobe Black.

Gerry Hamilton of Inside Texas reported on Sep. 11 (paid content) that Black visiting Texas for the Wyoming game “is a possibility” after he canceled his visit to Baton Rouge to see the LSU Tigers last weekend.

Black and his camp were reportedly impressed by how Texas convincingly defeated the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa last weekend.

Whether Black will visit Texas this weekend for the Wyoming game is not confirmed. We’ll continue to monitor the status of Black’s potential visit to Texas in the coming days for the matchup at DKR on Sep. 16.

Black has a couple more scheduled visits before signing day in December

After canceling the LSU visit last weekend, Black has two more official visits scheduled for the next month. He’s scheduled to officially visit College Station to see the Texas A&M Aggies on Oct. 7 and Tuscaloosa on Oct. 14 to see Alabama.

Texas remains the clear leader in this recruitment heading into the fall official visits for Black. Texas A&M is still a threat to Texas the longer the recruiting process goes on for Black. Alabama is still communicating with Black but is behind Texas and Texas A&M this fall.

Black does not have a public decision timeline. But Texas is working to get him to shut down his recruitment and jump in this class as soon as possible. Texas already has momentum on the recruiting trail after the win over Alabama on the road last weekend.

If the Longhorns landed their “must-get” recruit in the 2024 class this fall in the coming days and weeks, that would skyrocket Texas’ stock on the trail heading into late September and October.
