Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian landed their fifth commitment in the 2025 recruiting class on April 6, nabbing a pledge from the touted four-star Chapel Hill (TX) running back Rickey Stewart Jr.

Stewart committed to the Longhorns in the 2025 class over offers from the Alabama Crimson Tide, Oregon Ducks, Baylor Bears, SMU Mustangs, and Michigan Wolverines, among others. He gave his pledge to the Longhorns amid his April 6 unofficial visit to Texas during spring practice.

A former SMU commit, Stewart was identified by running backs coach Tashard Choice and the Longhorns as a top target at the position on the trail for the 2025 cycle early this offseason. He was offered by Texas during his visit to Austin for the first big Junior Day of the offseason on Jan. 20.

Within the next couple of weeks after receiving an offer from Texas, Stewart backed off his commitment to SMU.

Considering the the fact that the Longhorns have some big visit weekends ahead on the recruiting trail through the second half of spring camp, more commitments for Sarkisian and staff isn't out of the question.

Here's a prediction of Texas's next 2025 commitment after landing Stewart on April 6.

Since April 6 is such a big visit date this weekend for the Longhorns, we're only looking at visiting recruits who could be soon to commit to Texas on this list. And considering the multitude of blue-chip recruits visiting Austin right now, there are quite a few intriguing potential commitments for the Longhorns in the 2025 class this spring.

One current visitor that Kyle Flood and the Longhorns have identified as a priority out-of-state target along the offensive line in the 2025 class is three-star San Francisco (CA) St. Ignatius College Prep interior offensive lineman John Mills.

The big 6-foot-5 and 295-pound lineman from the Bay Area is making his first return visit to Texas this weekend since the first big Junior Day of the offseason on Jan. 20. He is also scheduled to officially visit Texas in mid-June.

The combination of the west coast connections on the Texas staff and Flood's consistent communication with Mills has Texas in a great spot in this recruitment among his top schools this spring.
