Entering the spring evaluation period, Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian will continue to hand out offers to rising targets in the 2025, 2026, and 2027 recruiting classes. Texas has already handed out many offers to key emerging targets in all those aforementioned recruiting classes.

One of the positions to watch for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail this spring regarding the offers and visits that are made is wide receiver. Wideout recruiting has come into focus for Sarkisian and wide receivers coach Chris Jackson in the 2025 class early this offseason.

Who Texas football could offer at wideout this spring?

Texas has multiple top in-state wide receiver targets that the staff is prioritizing. But there are other recent offers and potential targets at wide receiver in the 2025 class that Sarkisian, Jackson, and the Longhorns should consider offering before they're stock heats up too much on the recruiting trail.

Here are three underrated 2025 wide receiver recruits that the Longhorns could offer during the spring evaluation period.

Talyn Taylor, Geneva Community (Geneva, IL)

Despite already holding offers from nearly two dozen FBS schools, the touted four-star Geneva Community (IL) wide receiver Talyn Taylor is still seeing his stock ascend on the recruiting trail entering the spring.

Taylor already holds offers from many of the nation's top college programs, including the Alabama Crimson Tide, Georgia Bulldogs, Michigan Wolverines, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Ohio State Buckeyes, among many others.

The 6-foot and 165-pound wideout from Illinois is a versatile and explosive weapon when he gets the ball in his hands in space. Taylor is a wideout capable of making big plays at multiple levels of the field on offense.

Taylor is the type of versatile and electric wide receiver talent who would naturally fit in Sarkisian's offensive scheme. As the Longhorns move toward a version of "position-less football" at wide receiver entering the SEC in 2024, someone who could be motioned around and weaponized in multiple different ways to generate explosive plays would be a valuable piece in this offense.
