In the last few years, wide receiver recruiting has been top-notch for Texas football under head coach Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian and Texas have recruited at an elite level at the high school level and in the portal at the wide receiver position after they landed the top-ranked wideout class in the 247Sports Composite during the winter transfer window early this offseason.

The Longhorns also signed an elite wide receiver talent in the 2024 class from the high school ranks, St. Louis University (MO) five-star Ryan Wingo. Between high school recruiting and the transfer portal, the Longhorns are loaded at wide receiver for the 2024 season and beyond.

It doesn't look like the talent pipeline in wide receiver recruiting will dry up anytime soon.

Texas is in the mix for multiple elite wide receiver recruits from the high school ranks in the 2025 class, highlighted by Duncanville five-star Dakorien Moore and Santa Ana (CA) Mater Dei high-four-star Marcus Harris.

One of the fast-rising out-of-state targets at wideout to watch for the Longhorns in the 2025 class early this offseason is the elite high-four-star Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic receiver Quincy Porter. The No. 5 wide receiver recruit in the nation in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite is a hot commodity on the recruiting trail in the last few months.

Porter's rise on the recruiting trail caught the attention of Sarkisian and wide receivers coach Chris Jackson early this offseason. The sizable 6-foot-3 and 190-pound wideout from New Jersey would be a natural fit at boundary receiver in Sarkisian's offense.

He's got the tools and ability at boundary receiver similar to All-Big 12 Texas wideout Adonai Mitchell.

Texas among the schools Porter wants to visit this spring

Inside Texas's Justin Wells reported on Feb. 5 (paid content) that Texas is one of the schools that have Porter interested in them early this offseason. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Michigan Wolverines are reportedly also among the schools piquing Porter's interest entering the spring.

Porter has already visited Notre Dame and Michigan since last spring. And he wants to get down to Austin soon to visit Texas unofficially during the spring.

Texas has some connections in this recruitment

This isn't the first time in recent cycles that Texas has prioritized a talented blue-chip recruit from the northeast, specifically in New Jersey.

Porter was teammates with rising sophomore Texas defensive tackle Sydir Mitchell at Bergen Catholic High School.

It's also noteworthy that while Jackson and Sarkisian are primarily involved in the recruitment of Porter for Texas, OL coach/OC Kyle Flood is well connected in New Jersey. Flood is from New York and coached in the area, namely with Rutgers, for over a decade.
