Ryan Wingo, WR

Wideout recruiting will be front and center for the Longhorns this weekend against Wyoming. Texas is hosting over a half-dozen blue-chip wide receiver recruits this weekend in the 2024 and 2025 classes.

And there might not be a more important recruit on campus for the Wyoming game this weekend than the elite St. Louis University (MO) five-star Ryan Wingo. The No. 2 wide receiver recruit in the nation in the 2024 class in the On3 Industry Ranking is the top prospect at the position on the big board for Sark, Jackson, and the Longhorns this fall.

Wingo’s recruitment is currently a battle between the Mizzou Tigers, Tennessee Volunteers, and Texas. If Texas impresses Wingo in a big way for the second week in a row after beating Alabama on the road in Week 2, that could move the needle enough for the Longhorns to be considered the leader over Mizzou in this recruitment.

Michael Fasusi, OT

The top-ranked offensive tackle recruit visiting Texas this weekend for the Wyoming game is the elite Lewisville (TX) five-star Michael Fasusi. The top-ranked offensive tackle recruit in Texas in the 2025 class is visiting the 40 for the first time since the Texas Elite Camp in early June.

Offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood has a great relationship with Fasusi (per On3).

"“I love Coach Flood as a character and he is a good coach. We joke around a lot and he is just a cool guy. Coach Flood knows the game, he wants to win and I am down with that. Texas has a lot of good coaches and I know Coach Flood is one and he cares about me.”"

Texas can make another strong impression on Fasusi after he visited Oklahoma unofficially for the Sooners’ season opener at home in Norman on Sep. 2. This recruitment is boiling down to Texas and Oklahoma as the top two schools early on, with Oregon and the USC Trojans also involved with Fasusi in third and fourth place.
