Posted October 5th, 2017


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

District begins for most commitments

Each of Texas’ in-state commitments is either playing a district game or on an open week. Safety commit Caden Sterns of Cibolo Steele and kicker Cameron Dicker of Lake Travis are the only two in-state commitments without a game to play. The rest of the 2018 group faces important matchups as teams across Texas start to jockey for playoff positions. Byron Hobbs, a 3-star linebacker from Fort Worth Eastern Hills, is still out with an injury.
