Raycine Guillory’s commitment to the Texas Longhorns is a big win on the recruiting trail, as it is the first major pledge from one the top players in the class of 2026. Standing at 5’10 and weighing 180 pounds, Guillory’s prowess on the field was evident during his standout sophomore season at Aledo. Leading the Bearcats to their 12th state championship, he showcased his power between the tackles, exceptional pad level, and impressive short-area quickness whenever he touches the football.
Guillory’s ability to make defenders miss in open space, coupled with his burst of speed, makes him a formidable threat from any down and distance to make a house call. He was the leading rusher for the Bearcats, blitzing defenses for 1,236 rushing yards and he scored 17 touchdowns in 2023.
His versatility extends beyond running, as he demonstrated with 175 receiving yards and four touchdowns this past fall for Aledo. Guillory, while at Mansfield Lake Ridge his freshman season, ran for 769 yards and nine touchdowns. As a receiving threat, he caught 18 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns.
Notably, this commitment marks a significant win for the Longhorns, securing their first in-state commitment in the class of 2026. Texas fans have reason to be excited about the future of their football program with Guillory’s potential impact. He committed to Texas, with offers from Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas A&M. The Longhorns were 1 of 11 schools to offer Guillory early on during his first two years of high school.
