Longhorns Rise To No. 9 In SI All-American's 2022 Recruiting Class Rankings

Texas football's talented 2022 commits continue to capture national attention

Steve Sarkisian and Co. are heading into the fall with high-flying expectations on the Forty Acres. 

After a multitude of official and unofficial campus visits throughout the beginning of the summer, the Horns' latest commitments on the recruiting trail has once again landed Texas' 2022 recruiting class on SI All-American's Top 25 recruiting rankings.

According to the latest announcement from SI All-American on Thursday afternoon, the Longhorns rank No. 9 on the list. This ranking moves Texas one spot up after previously ranking at No. 10 on SI All-American's Top 25 recruiting rankings for June.

John Garcia Jr. of SI All-American shared his take on the Longhorns in the latest ranking announcement: 

Beyond being more impressed with QB Maalik Murphy every time we see him, including Wednesday night, the Longhorns hold a top 10 group with instant success within state lines under Steve Sarkisian, including latest addition Jamarion Miller.

Texas' No. 9 ranking is tops amongst other Big 12 teams on the list, and for good reason. The group, which is headlined by the likes of the previously mentioned Murphy, offers key versatility for the Longhorns on both offense and defense.
