Longhorns Recruiting Road Trip: Week 8




This past weekend, I visited Cedar Park to watch the fifth ranked Timberwolves. This season, Cedar Park is aiming to be the last team standing in Texas’s 5A Division I classification, and hopes to win their first state title since 2015.

Week Eight:

The Timberwolves faced off against the Trojans, who have recently dropped down from the 6A classification due to the UIL’s 2020 realignment. I was excited to see how Anderson would fare without star quarterback, Carsten Groos, who has graduated and become a walk-on for the Oklahoma Sooners. However, Cedar Park had other plans and quickly dismantled the Trojans.

Timberwolves quarterback, Ryder Hernandez, led his team to a 30-0 first quarter lead and did not look back. In fact, the Timberwolves broke a school record with 82 points in the contest. So far this season, Ryder has shattered four of Cedar Park’s records including career: passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions, and total yards. Last Friday, Hernandez continued to put on a show and star wide receiver, Josh Cameron, broke the team’s career receiving touchdowns record.

Extra Point:

After their game against Anderson, the Timberwolves became the state’s fourth ranked team in 5AD1. Cedar Park has been out for revenge this season, already paying back Vandegrift for a 2019 loss. In addition, the Timberwolves are scheduled to end the regular season against Manor, who bounced them from the playoffs last year. Ryder Hernandez has a great chance to take the Timberwolves deep into the playoffs, and is one of the state’s more exciting players to watch. Last season, I watched him battle the flu and lead Cedar Park to a thrilling victory over the Hutto Hippos.

Longhorns Recruiting Notes:


Last Thursday, the Longhorns offered 2023 wide receiver Johntay Cook. Cook is a key player on for the DeSoto Eagles, one of Texas’s best high school football teams.

On Monday, Texas was the first school to offer 2023 defensive end, Dylan Spencer. The 6’5″ defensive end attends Taylor High School in Katy, TX.

Lastly, the Longhorns also offered 2021 wide receiver, Jack Bech, who is currently committed to Vanderbilt. However, recently there has been multiple 247Sports crystal ball predictions in favor of Bech flipping his commitment to LSU.
