A long-awaited commitment in the 2024 recruiting class was finally announced on Dec. 13 for Texas football, a week before signing day. Texas landed a commitment from one of its top in-state priority defensive recruits in the 2024 class on Dec. 13, the elite five-star Waco (TX) Connally cornerback Kobe Black.

While Black publicly announced his commitment to Texas on Dec. 13 during a ceremony at Connally High School, he told the media that he gave a silent pledge to the Longhorns well before the start of his senior season.

Who's next up to commit to Texas football in the 2024 class after elite CB Kobe Black?

Black committed to Texas over the Oregon Ducks, Oklahoma State Cowboys, LSU Tigers, and Texas A&M Aggies.

Black's commitment gets head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns one step closer to achieving a third-straight top-five-ranked recruiting class in the nation for the 2024 cycle. Texas now ranks as the No. 6 class nationally and the fourth best in the SEC in the 247Sports 2024 Team Composite Rankings.

Texas is far from done in the 2024 class after landing Black's commitment on Dec. 13. This weekend sees a host of visiting recruits from the 2024 class coming to Austin. Texas could have more action ahead on the recruiting trail heading into the final visit weekend before signing day next week.

Here's a prediction of Texas's next commitment in the 2024 class after the Longhorns landed Black on Dec. 13.

Hunter Andrews, ATH (Utah commit)

Among the late-cycle offers the Longhorns could be hosting for an official visit this weekend in the 2024 class is three-star Magnolia (TX) athlete and Utah Utes commit Hunter Andrews. Inside Texas reported earlier this week that Andrews is "looking at a visit to Austin this weekend" after Texas officially offered him on Dec. 6.

Texas offered Andrews as a tight end/linebacker prospect. While he played running back at Magnolia High School, he's got an intriguing combination of size (at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds) and speed that gives him the versatility to play multiple positions on both sides of the ball at the collegiate level.

Andrews has been committed to Utah since late June 2023. But Texas and Texas A&M are among the handful of Power Five schools that are still communicating with him before signing day.

If Andrews shows up on campus at Texas this weekend, that's a good sign that special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks and the Longhorns are really pushing to flip his commitment from Utah heading into signing day.
