The 2024 recruiting class for Texas football was mostly locked in on the first signing day on Dec. 20. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian have signed all 22 of their commitments among high school recruits in the 2024 class. Both portal commitments in the December window also signed on the dotted line for Texas on Dec. 20.

Over half of the Longhorns' 22 high school signees in the 2024 class are expected to enroll early for the spring semester. And both portal commitments, former Clemson Tigers junior transfer safety Andrew Mukuba and Houston Cougars sophomore wide receiver Matthew Golden, are expected to enroll early at Texas.

Late signing day targets for Texas football in the 2024 class

Sark and staff have put together an impressive group in the 2024 class after the first day of the Early Signing Period. Texas have addressed multiple positions of need with immediate impact recruits from the high school ranks and the portal in this cycle.

But Texas has a few outstanding positional needs the staff is looking to address in the 2024 class before the late signing period in February. Wide receiver and defensive line are the two primary focuses among positional needs for the Longhorns in the 2024 class after the first signing day on Dec. 20.

Here are five of the most important remaining targets for the Longhorns in high school recruiting in the 2024 class after the first signing day this week.

Alex Foster, DL (Baylor commit)

The last official visit among the defensive line targets that the Longhorns hosted from the 2024 class before signing day this week was the three-star Baylor Bears commit and Greenville (MS) St. Joseph's product Alex Foster. Texas hosted Foster among the three flip targets who officially visited Austin last weekend.

Foster had a successful official visit to Texas last weekend. But he decided to delay signing his letter of intent until the late signing period in February.

Defensive line coach Bo Davis and the Longhorns really like the upside of the 6-foot-5 and 250-pound Mississippi native Foster. Texas's fate with Foster remains dependent on how much Davis and the Longhorns push for his commitment in the next couple of months.
