Texas’ 2019 class now contains 16 members, while the 2020 class still consists of dual-threat quarterback Hudson Card of Lake Travis. The Longhorns hope that number continues to grow as the early signing period in December approaches. Here is the schedule for the 16 current commits in the 2019 class. Texas commits Roschon Johnson and Jordan Whittington are injured. Peter Mpagi is on an off week.
