Texas Longhorns Recruiting

Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip: Week 6




Charles Wright was quick to flip his commitment from Iowa State to the Longhorns after Texas extended an offer at the end of August. As a result, I made the short drive down to watch 2021 Longhorns commit Charles Wright in action. The previous week, Wright led the Austin High Maroons to a sizable victory against Pflugerville Connally. However, he would have a bigger test against the Bowie Bulldogs.

Week Six:

Entering the season, the Maroons were predicted by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football to place sixth in their district, just below Austin Bowie. As a result, this was a huge contest in terms of possible playoff implications.

However, Austin Maroons quarterback Charles Wright did not let that faze him. In a battle of two great offenses, the Maroons and Bulldogs were clawing at each other for the entirety of the first half. Furthermore, Wright was putting on a passing clinic. However, the Maroons pocket passer also showed off his running game with a large touchdown rush. But, early in the fourth quarter, the Maroons found themselves down 56-35. From there, Charles Wright flipped the switch for the Maroons and scored 22 unanswered points, winning the game 57-56. Wright had accounted for a total of seven touchdowns in Austin’s remarkable comeback victory.

Extra Point:

In years past, the Maroons have struggled to start the season 2-0. However, Wright has Austin heading in the right direction during his senior season. I was impressed by his efficiency against Bowie, as he was involved in all but one of Austin’s touchdowns. I look forward to seeing how Wright will handle Westlake and Lake Travis this season, but he will need improved play from his defense.

Miles Logged:

16 miles (round trip).
