The Texas Longhorns are stocking up on baseball talent for the future.
The 2022 class has earned recent commitments from pitcher Jared Thomas (Waxahachie) and catcher Rylan Galvan (Sinton.) They have also secured commitments from 2023 shortstop/pitcher Lane Allen (Guyer) and infielder Brayden Randle (Rockwall).
The stretch of recruiting that Texas has been on has been nothing short of impressive. The 40 Acres is a place that baseball players want to be. Especially new commit, Brenner Cox.
“I chose Texas because it’s the best baseball program in the nation. The history along with the family of players and coaches make being a Longhorn incredible,” Cox explained.
Cox is a center fielder who has just committed to Texas’ 2022 class. He played his sophomore season for Prosper and was part of the baseball and football teams. With the influx of people moving to the north Dallas-Fort Worth area, Prosper ISD announced its second school in the district, Rock Hill High School. Cox will be finishing out his high school career there.
“Having the opportunity to wear burnt orange and represent UT and play at Disch-Falk has been a dream of mine my whole life. Plus, becoming a member of the fraternity of great players that have built the program will be a huge honor,” Cox said.
Texas has been one of the most consistent programs in all of the nation as they have reached an NCAA-record 36 appearances in the College World Series.
Cox stands at around 6’1 and is 175-pounds. He also does a bit of pitching. His fastball has gotten to the mid-high 80s with his cutter also reaching the low 80’s.
DREAMS TO REALITY! I would like to thank God, my family, coaches, and friends for helping me throughout this process and helping me to get where I am today. I am beyond grateful and excited to say that I am committing to THE University of Texas🤘🏽 #HookEm pic.twitter.com/cepXdfO6UD

“I have always set very lofty goals for myself. Whether it be academics or sports, I have committed to putting in the work necessary to achieve the highest level. But just as important has been the relationships and support of my family, friends, and God,” Cox said on his success.
Cox has been elite for the Prosper Eagles in his freshman and sophomore seasons. He looks to continue to grow and create a winning culture for the new Rock Hill Blue Hawks.
“Having an opportunity to set a culture and leave a legacy is very exciting. The administration and coaching staff have really done a great job of setting a foundation for achieving excellence in all parts of being a student at Rock Hill,” Cox explained.
Brenner Cox is a huge addition to the future of Texas baseball. With a lot of the top names from the 2020 class moving on to the big leagues, it’s encouraging to see Texas baseball focused on the future.
“I appreciate everyone’s support. My hope is that every day I will represent The University of Texas and my family to the best of my ability. You can always count on the fact I will have fun doing the things I love!” Cox exclaimed.
