The 2020 recruiting class has better elite talent at the top and is much deeper across the lines. If Texas can take care of business on the field over the next two months and also close out the 2019 class strong, the staff will have momentum on its side to make significant strides towards a top-five class that’s more centered on in-state prospects.

It’s the 24-hour rule after wins and losses here at Inside Texas as well as the Longhorns football team. No need to lament about Oklahoma State with Co-Big 12 leader West Virginia coming to Austin. Let’s catch up on the team news, and dive deep into recruiting from 2019’s class to 2020-2021. Some Monday Scoop.

AUSTIN — After grabbing talent from St. Louis, MO in the 2018 cycle, Tom Herman decided he needed to continue that connection in 2019.

Trinity Catholic four-star WR Marcus Washington committed to Texas today. With Texas on other targets from TCHS, there’s a possibility Washington won’t be the only prospect from the school to become a Longhorn down the road.

Revisiting another recruiting post from July

In an effort to keep the 2019 story arc going I’ve been wanting to update this post for a while but I needed more time for the cycle to take shape. In recent weeks early season success at Texas, as well as the NSD1 countdown continuing along its inexorable path, have had a crystallizing effect on the staff’s intentions. Questions still loom of course, but we can at least venture educated guesses at most of them. The old post is in the normal font color, new is in red.
