Andrew Marsh, WR

Among the highest-rated 2025 visiting recruits on offense for the Longhorns on campus to see Texas beat up on BYU was the elite five-star Fulshear (TX) Katy Jordan wide receiver Andrew Marsh. The No. 6 prospect in Texas in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite made his second gameday visit to DKR this fall for the Texas-BYU game this weekend.

Marsh came away from this visit impressed again by the atmosphere at DKR against BYU. He told Orangebloods after the visit this weekend (subscriber content) that the “atmosphere is always the best for me each visit”. Marsh said the “fans are loud and they represent the program well”.

Marsh had a similar reaction after his unofficial visit to Texas to see the Longhorns defeat the Wyoming Cowboys at home at DKR on Sep. 16. He liked the atmosphere during that night game against Wyoming at DKR last month.

Jacorey Watson, WR

Any fans of Texas recruiting should be sensing a theme here for the group of visitors for the Longhorns for the BYU game this weekend. There were multiple highly touted blue-chip wide receivers from the 2025 and 2026 recruiting classes on campus for the Texas-BYU game on Oct. 28.

Another one of the highly-rated 2025 wide receivers that visited DKR for Texas’ win over BYU in Week 10 was four-star Pearland (TX) Shadow Creek product Jacorey Watson. The speedy 5-foot-10 and 175-pound in-state blue-chip wideout wasn’t surprised when Texas beat up on BYU this weekend.

After the game, he said that he “was really impressed with how (Maalik) Murphy stepped in and went crazy”. Watson also mentioned how much he liked how the Texas receivers “compliment each other”.

Texas is among Watson’s top schools before he trims down his list of finalists heading into the 2024 offseason. He also likes the LSU Tigers, Ole Miss Rebels, Kansas Jayhawks, Texas, and Oregon Ducks, among a handful of other schools.
