Offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Kyle Flood and Texas football continued to add "big humans" on the recruiting trail in the 2025 class entering the summer during this holiday weekend. Texas landed commitments from the Coleman brothers from Cedar Hill High School in Texas on May 25.

Top candidates to be the next to commit to Texas football in the 2025 class

Three-star Cedar Hill interior offensive linemen Jordan Coleman and Devin Coleman committed to Flood and the Longhorns via posts on social media on Saturday evening (May 25). The Coleman brothers committed to Texas over the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Baylor Bears, Colorado Buffaloes, and Ole Miss Rebels, among other FBS schools.

Texas also added a commitment for the preferred walk-on program from the third of the Coleman brothers on May 25, Cedar Hill defensive lineman Isaiah Coleman.

Adding commitments from the Coleman brothers brings Flood and the Longhorns to three offensive linemen in the 2025 class. Texas also landed a commitment from Port Neches-Groves (TX) three-star offensive lineman Jackson Christian earlier this spring in the 2025 class.

Texas seems to be hitting its stride at the right time on the recruiting trail in the 2025 class entering summer official visits. We're sure to see frequent activity on the recruiting trail for the 2025 and 2026 classes for the Longhorns during summer visits.

Here's a prediction of the next 2025 recruit to commit to the Longhorns after the Coleman brothers on May 25.

James Simon, RB

Texas seems all but a lock to land a commitment from the touted four-star Shreveport (LA) Calvary Baptist running back James Simon when he announces at the On3 Elite Series on May 29. Simon is scheduled to announce his commitment live from Nashville, TN, in a few days.

The blue-chip running back from Louisiana is deciding between four top schools, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Texas.

Tashard Choice and the Longhorns have been the trendy pick in the race to land a commitment from Simon since early this spring. There hasn't been any reporting or anything else we've heard recently that would make me think Texas won't be the pick for Simon next week.

If Texas does secure a commitment from Simon on May 29, he would join four-star Tyler (TX) Chapel Hill product Rickey Stewart as the two running backs in the Longhorns 2025 class.
