Stay updated on the latest Texas Longhorns recruiting news brought to you by Longhorn recruiting beat writer Mike Craven of Hookem.com. The Forty will publish M-F at 10 a.m. each morning to provide Texas fans with an in-depth look at the latest for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail. 


One more week

Houston-area high schools are still waiting for the official start of the season after the effects of Hurricane Harvey. With the weather clearing up, teams in the area are beginning to find normalcy and most are expected to officially begin the season in Week 3.

That means Texas commits like B.J. Foster, Brennan Eagles, Jalen Green, Al’vonte Woodard, Malcolm Epps and Keondre Coburn won’t play again this weekend, although some programs have set up scrimmages.

The out-of-state commits

Cameron Rising, quarterback, Newbury Park (Calif.)

FYI: 6-2/209; 4 stars; No. 157 player nationally, per 247Sports composite

Rising’s team is off to a 2-0 start heading into Week 3 of the California prep schedule. Through two games, the 4-star quarterback has thrown for 552 yards and six touchdowns to no interceptions, completing 74.4 percent of his passes. Rising recorded 64 yards and two touchdowns rushing in last week’s win after not running the ball in Week 1.

Rondale Moore, wide receiver, Trinity (Ky.)

FYI: 5-8.5/174; 4 stars; No. 200 player nationally

Moore set school records in last week’s win, finishing the game with a staggering 22 catches for 304 yards. The supreme athlete was one of three Texas wide receiver commits to appear at The Opening Final. He ran an electronic-timed 4.33 at The Opening regional in Chicago.

Casey Thompson, quarterback, Newcastle (Okla.)

FYI: 6-1/184; 4 stars; No. 112 player nationally

Thompson began his Newcastle career with a loss to Noble High, a perennial power in Oklahoma football. Thompson helped his team to a lead before Noble outlasted Newcastle. No offensive stats were provided from the game.

Ayodele Adeoye, linebacker, IMG Academy (Fla.)

FYI: 6-0/231; 4 stars; No. 112 player nationally

IMG is 2-0 heading into an open week. Adeoye, a 4-star linebacker commit, helped hold 5-star quarterback target Tanner McKee and the Centennial (Calif.) offense to just 20 points in last week’s win. He recorded three tackles in the first game of the season.

Dominick Wood-Anderson, tight end, Arizona Western College (JUCO)

FYI: 6-5/245; 3 stars; No. 11-ranked JUCO player nationally
