Stay updated on the latest Texas Longhorns recruiting news brought to you by Longhorns recruiting beat writer Mike Craven of Hookem.com. 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.


Playoff time

All but two of the 2018 in-state Texas commits reached the playoffs. Linebacker Byron Hobbs (Fort Worth Eastern Hills) and Brennan Eagles (Alief Taylor) have finished their seasons.

That means 12 of Texas’ 14 in-state commitments will be in action at some point this weekend in the bi-district round of the state playoffs. Only one of the four out-of-state commitments, Rondale Moore, is still in action.
