Over the weekend, the 2022 Longhorn commit class, headlined by quarterback Maalik Murphy and wide receiver Armani Winfield, and other elite prospects came down to Austin to make their visits to the 40 Acres.
Additionally, new head coach Steve Sarkisian took his first tough blow on the recruiting trail as elite 2023 running back prospect Rueben Owens de-committed from the Longhorns.
Nevertheless, Texas has recently bolstered their 2022 class, adding kicker Will Stone out of Austin and long-snapper Lance St. Louis from Gilbert, Arizona.
Kelvin Banks (OT) and Denver Harris (CB), who are uncommitted, were also an area of focus for the staff.
Take a look at some of the highlights from the past weekend:
WR Evan Stewart - Liberty (Frisco, TX)
OL Kelvin Banks - Summer Creek (Humble, TX)
WR Armani Winfield ** - Lewisville (Lewisville, TX)
RB Jaydon Blue ** - Klein Cain (Houston, TX)
