Texas Longhorns Recruiting

Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip: Week 5




This past weekend, I covered two high school football games in the Austin area. Firstly, I traveled to Round Rock to watch the Lake Travis Cavaliers take on the Westwood Warriors in a non-district game.

Week Five:

To begin the season, Lake Travis was ranked as the 6A classification’s eighth best team. However, Lake Travis will be without current Longhorn, Hudson Card, who was part of Texas’s 2020 recruiting class. In addition, Lake Travis will also be without their successor to Card, Nate Yarnell, for a couple of weeks due to an injury.

Despite of this, I was excited to watch the game to see former Longhorns commit, Lake McRee. Last year, McRee missed the season with a torn ACL. However, the tight end had an impressive game in his first appearance since his injury. Furthermore, McRee, a Southern California commit, was able to help the Cavaliers move the chains in key passing situations. To finish the game, Lake Travis was able to beat Westwood, 63-20.

Now, we shift gears to the Battle of 290, where I got to watch the LBJ Jaguars battle the Manor Mustangs. Last week, four-star safety Andrew Mukuba announced that he was committing to Clemson. Previously, the Austin LBJ product had named the Longhorns as one of his finalists. Similar to the last LBJ game I covered, four-star cornerback Latrell McCutchin once again had a big game where he ended up with an interception. The Jaguars were able to tally their first victory of the season with a 35-19 win over Manor.

Extra Point:

It will be very interesting to see how these Austin area talents pan out at the college level. Texas had a legitimate shot to land all three prospects, but, for various reasons, didn’t. Oklahoma Sooners commit Latrell McCutchin expressed to FOX 7’s John Hygh that he passed up on the Longhorns because they were late to offer him. Hygh’s interview with McCutchin can be found here. On the other hand, McRee had announced his commitment to the Longhorns in July of 2019, before decommitting in February. Lastly, Andrew Mukuba was interested enough in Texas to name them as one of his top three schools, however they too missed the cut.

Longhorns Recruiting Notes:

Last night, four-star athlete Billy Bowman decommitted from the Texas Longhorns. Previously, Bowman was the second highest rated commit in Texas’s 2021 recruiting class.


Yesterday, the Longhorns offered 2023 athlete Dalton Brooks, from Shiner, TX. Brooks is one of the few players from the 2023 recruiting class that has received an offer from Texas.


On Tuesday, 2022 five-star wide receiver Caleb Burton announced his top twelve schools, which included the Longhorns. In addition, Burton attends Del Valle High School, which is in the Austin area.

Switching to basketball, 2021 five-star power forward Daimion Collins named the Longhorns as one of his final five schools.
