DeAndre Moor, a star at Bellflower (Calif.), St. John Bosco has been committed to Louisville since May, but Texas and Georgia are pushing for a possible flip. Moore and his family will likely visit Austin next month. However, the date has not been set yet.

“I’ve had a great relationship with Sark (Steve Sarkisian) and Coach (Jeff) Banks since eighth grade when he offered me to Alabama, so I’ve been knowing him for a while,” Moore told SI All-American. “I was able to see Texas when I visited. I love Austin. Austin is like L.A., but far from L.A. really. “

But his similarity to Austin is only one of many factors that make Austin sound like the perfect place for him.

” Not to mention Coach (Brennan), Marion. Coach Marion is one of the most respected receiver coaches. He is a coach for players. I know I can go there, and he can become the best player I’ve ever been. That’s why Texas is so attractive to me.”

The 6-foot, 185-pound playmaker got to visit Texas during the offseason and reflected on the trip. He said that he went to Texas with his family and got to tour the city. “Really spent some time with Coach Marion. I was able to ask him a few questions.

Texas has one of the top recruiting classes in America for the 2023 cycle, but it has room left for new additions ahead of National Signing Day come December. A new name was added to the monitoring list on this front on Tuesday when Jelani McDonald announced his Texas football offer via social media. Since July 1, the Connally star and two-way Waco (Texas), basketball player has made a verbal commitment for Oklahoma State football.

Even before the offer news came down, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect had been alluding to taking a visit to Austin relatively soon. On3 reported earlier in the week that he would likely visit Austin this weekend, with Iowa State in attendance.

Many top Texas commitments, including Arch Manning, are expected back in Austin for the Big 12 matchup, so tracking McDonald is worth some attention moving forward.

There was no shortage of reaction from the college football world following Texas’ statement win over Oklahoma on Saturday.

From commentators to coaches, fans and of course recruits — plenty was said.

For Texas commitment Cedric Baxter, the top back in the nation in the SI99 rankings, it was more proof of concept in how Steve Sarkisian utilized running backs in the win.

“I think the way they just used the backs speaks for itself and why I committed there,” Baxter told SBLive.

Star back Bijan Robinson rushed for 130 yards and a pair of scores while reserves Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson each averaged better than 6 yards per carry as well. The trio added six catches for 79 yards and a score (Robinson) in the win, too.

Manning, who committed to Texas and spurred the nation’s hottest recruiting run in June, has led Newman to a 4-1 record thus far in 2022. The quarterback has started on varsity since his freshman season in 2019.

Texas holds a top-five consensus recruiting class of 2023 to date.

The visit to Tuscaloosa will be an unofficial one for Williams.

” This visit does loom large,” Spiegelman stated. “Pete Golding leads the recruitment for Derek Williams. Pete Golding, as you may know, signed a player from New Iberia Westgate last season from Danny Lewis, who was wanted both by LSU (and Florida). He’s been the lead guy and Derek’s recruiter for many years so this visit is a long one. Along with Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M, Miami is still trying to get their shot with Derek Williams. “

Williams currently holds the No. 2 safety and the No. 32 overall player in the 2023 SI99.

SEPTEMBER 29

SEPTEMBER 21

In the wake of their loss of Jalen Hale to Alabama on Wednesday, the Texas Longhorns are set to receive an official visit from Louisville wide receiver commit DeAndre Moore of St. John Bosco (Bellflower, CA), per reports.

Moore de-committed from Oklahoma in January before committing to Louisville on May 31.

Moore has visited Texas before, most recently in the spring of this year. According to the report, Moore will be visiting Texas for one of their two home games in November.

SEPTEMBER 20

The Texas Longhorns will hope to continue their recruiting momentum on Wednesday, September 21, with the announcement of wide receiver commitment Jalen Hale.

Hale will make his announcement at 12: 30 pm live on the Longview Gameday Facebook and Youtube pages, and will be deciding between the Longhorns, Alabama Crimson Tide, and Georgia Bulldogs.

Hale supports both Quinn Ewers, the Texas quarterback, and Arch Manning, who could give the Horns an edge.

“It definitely helps Texas that Quinn Ewers is on campus because he can spin it,” Hale told 247 Sports. “After Quinn, my quarterback would be Arch Manning so that’s something I look into. “

SEPTEMBER 16

The Longhorns are set to host three elite visitors for their matchup vs. the UTSA Road Runners on Saturday, including two current commits in safety Derek Williams and running back Cedric Baxter.

2024 recruit Jordon Johnson-Rubell will also make the trip to Austin.

SEPTEMBER 8

Texas is set to receive a major visitor this weekend when Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle SI99 tight end Duce Robinson heads to the 40 Acres for the Longhorns matchup against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Robinson told Longhorns Country that he would be taking his official to the Texas-Bama match. “I’m really looking ahead to it. Coach Jeff Banks and me have been talking for quite some time. I was there at the end July and really enjoyed it. “

Robinson, who stands 6-6 and weighs in at 225 pounds, could fit a variety of needs for the Longhorns from his tight end spot, whether it be lining up on the line, in the slot, or as an outside receiver in the red zone.

And as evidenced by his 2021 season, in which he caught 60 passes for 972 yards and eight touchdowns, while also taking snaps as a rusher and even a quarterback at times, he could handle the load.

SEPTEMBER 2

One of Texas’ top remaining football targets, Longview (Texas) High School wide receiver Jalen Hale, is closing in on a verbal commitment.

The SI99 prospect, who says he is down to Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama and Georgia, may be thinking about cutting the list ahead of the decision — at least privately.

On3’s Chad Simmons reports two teams emerging at the forefront of the race, including the next two he is set to visit in Alabama and Texas. Hale will be in Tuscaloosa this weekend and then will see the Longhorns host the Crimson Tide in Austin on September 10.

Hale is planning on revealing his college commitment on September 21.
