Noah Best, IOL

Another new OL offer the Longhorns extended during the Elite Camp this weekend to an SEC-quality prospect in the 2026 class was to three-star Midlothian (TX) interior offensive lineman Noah Best. The 6-foot-3 and 290-pound offensive lineman from south in the DFW Metroplex has seen the interest in his recruitment regionally really pick up since the start of the offseason.

Texas joined the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Arkansas Razorbacks, SMU Mustangs, and Wisconsin Badgers as one of the first five major conference schools to offer Best.

Best first catch the attention of Flood and the Longhorns staff when Texas's OL coach visited him at Midlothian High School during the spring evaluation period. And after a solid workout in front of the Texas coaches during the Elite Camp this weekend, the offer was officially extended to him.

Flood and the Longhorns like the physicality and bigger frame that Best brings to the table playing along the interior offensive line. If Best really fills out his frame, as he's expected to top out around 6-foot-4 or 6-foot-5, then he could be a pretty imposing guard physically in the SEC a few years into the future.

Best moves well playing along the interior offensive line. He's quick at the point of attack and has no problem finishing blocks and getting downfield in run blocking. If Best continues to add necessary size to his already big frame, his recruitment should explode onto the national scene this summer.
