Longhorn recruiting trail: Remaining Texas targets

Posted January 4th, 2016


Texas landed one of the top offensive line recruits in the country in North Mesquite’s Jean Delance over the weekend

The addition of Delance gives the Longhorns a big boost upfront and was a much needed haul for Texas.

Delance announced his decision Saturday at the Under Armour All-America Game in Orlando, Fla.  just a few minutes after Texas lost out on running back Devwah Whaley, who committed to Arkansas.


What’s next along the Longhorns’ recruiting trail?

College football recruiting is currently in what’s called a “dead” period, where coaches can’t have contact with players, but that ends on Jan. 14 and lasts until National Signing day on Feb. 4. Here is a list of players who have reported offers from Texas but have yet to commit.
