Texas among top 3 schools for 5-Star CB priority Dorian Brew

Defensive back recruiting has been a staple on the trail for Texas football in the last couple of cycles. Texas followed up an impressive 2023 recruiting cycle where they landed top blue-chips, including safety Derek Williams Jr. and cornerback Malik Muhammad, with an even better haul for the 2024 class.

Texas's 2024 cycle saw Terry Joseph and Blake Gideon haul in the top-ranked defensive back class in the nation, including nearly a half-dozen blue-chip signees for this group.

Texas isn't looking to slow down with its success on the recruiting trail at defensive back for 2025. The Longhorns are big-game hunting at defensive back, including the No. 2 cornerback prospect in Texas in the 2025 class in the On3 Industry Ranking and 247Sports Composite.

Five-star Conroe (TX) cornerback Dorian Brew could be considered Texas's top priority defensive back recruit in-state in the 2025 class.

Entering summer visits, Brew has continually mentioned Texas among his top group of schools. On3's Steve Wiltfong reported on May 24 that Texas is one of the three schools "setting the pace" in Brew's recruitment, along with the LSU Tigers and USC Trojans.

Even the school once considered to be the clear leader in this recruitment for Brew, the Ohio State Buckeyes, weren't included among his top group in this report from Wiltfong late this week.

USC seems to be the fast riser among Brew's top three schools. Brew had a successful unofficial trip to USC during the spring that has made them a real contender in his eyes.

LSU and Texas have gone back-and-forth in this recruitment since the start of spring practice. Brew visited both schools this spring and has a lot of good things to say about both coaching staffs in Austin and Baton Rouge.

Brew is scheduled to officially visit all three of his top schools in the next few weeks. Here is his official visit schedule for his top three schools this summer.

May 31: LSU

June 7: USC

June 14: Texas

It's also worth mentioning that while Ohio State wasn't included among Brew's top three schools, he's still scheduled to visit Columbus on the weekend of June 21-23. But I don't expect Ohio State to be one of the top two or three schools Brew decides between when he's ready to announce, likely before his senior season this fall.

If Texas stays steady in this recruitment and does well during Brew's official visit to Austin in mid-June, there's a good chance he ends up choosing the Longhorns when he's ready to announce sometime late this summer. Joseph and Gideon have done well in this recruitment, with head coach Steve Sarkisian even communicating regularly with Brew.

Texas's player development and on-field success in the last couple of years under Sarkisian also has caught Brew's attention in this recruitment.
