Texas football landed its third portal commitment of the December transfer window on Dec. 23. The former UTSA Roadrunners redshirt sophomore edge rusher Trey Moore committed to Texas over the Alabama Crimson Tide via an announcement on social media this weekend.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns added a key commitment to help upgrade the pass rush with a productive edge rusher who won the 2023 ACC Defensive Player of the Year honors. Moore led the American Athletic Conference in sacks and tackles for loss this season.
Candidates who could be next to commit to Texas football in the 2024 class after EDGE transfer Trey Moore
He joins the former Houston Cougars wide receiver Matthew Golden and Clemson Tigers junior safety Andrew Mukuba as the three portal commits in this class for the Longhorns. All three portal commits sign on the dotted line for the Longhorns this week.
Texas also signed 23 commitments from the high school ranks in the 2024 class. Of the 23 high school recruits committed to this class for the Longhorns, 18 will be early enrollees.
The Longhorns put some of the finishing touches on high school recruiting at most position groups in this class this week during the Early Signing Period. But there are still a couple of positions the Longhorns will look to address before the late signing period in February.
The portal should also yield at least a couple of other pieces either during the remainder of the December/January window or during the spring window next offseason.
Here's a prediction of the next to commit to the Longhorns after picking up Moore on Dec. 23.
Alex Foster, DL (Baylor commit)
Among the top defensive line flip targets for the Longhorns in the 2024 class heading into the late signing period in February is Greenville (MS) St. Joseph's three-star and Baylor Bears commit Alex Foster. Texas hosted Foster on an official visit on the last weekend before signing day, from Dec. 15-17.
He also made a multi-day unofficial visit to Texas for the regular season finale on Nov. 24 against the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Defensive line coach Bo Davis and the Longhorns likes the talent and potential of the 6-foot-5 and 250-pound Mississippi defensive lineman Foster. Texas is in a good spot to flip Foster's commitment from Baylor, depending on how much they push for this pledge in the next couple of months.
