Carmello Brooks, EDGE

Another in-state offer in the 2025 class for the Longhorns that is being recruited by Davis that made it to campus for the Texas Tech game on Black Friday was the 6-foot-3 and 250-pound Katy (TX) Paetow edge rusher Carmello Brooks. The rising in-state edge rusher recruit has visited Texas multiple times since he received an offer from the Longhorns in November 2022.

Texas was literally one of the first Power Five schools to offer Brooks last fall, along with the Mizzou Tigers. He’s built a strong relationship with Davis and the rest of the Texas staff over the last year since the Longhorns offered.

The Longhorns impressed Brooks with their play on defense and the environment at DKR for the win over Texas Tech on Black Friday. He said after the game that “the experience of Austin is like one in a million” and that it “isn’t a shock” that Texas is going to the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend in Arlington, TX.

Jordan Washington, TE (UT commit)

With his senior season at Houston (TX) Langham Creek High School coming to an end a few weeks ago, three-star tight end and Texas commit Jordan Washington made it back to campus for a gameday visit to see the Longhorns beat up on Texas Tech on Nov. 24.

Washington was one of a handful of Texas commits that made it to DKR for the Texas Tech game on Black Friday, including four-star IMG Academy running back Jerrick Gibson, four-star IMG Academy safety Jordon Johnson-Rubell, and Wingo. These are some of Texas’ top skill recruits (and a top DB commit in JJR) who are committed to the 2024 class.

Most of the commits on campus for the Texas Tech game were active on social media and engaging with the other visiting recruits at DKR. Washington definitely fits into that category, as he was seen interacting with multiple other Texas recruits on the sidelines during the game.

He also came away impressed with the energetic crowd and atmosphere at DKR on Nov. 24.
