Brayden Randle’s commitment signals the start of 2023 recruiting for Texas

Posted June 9th, 2020


When he looks far into his future, Brayden Randle now sees himself playing baseball at Texas.

Randle announced on Tuesday afternoon that he has given the Longhorns a verbal commitment. A middle infielder, Randle played varsity baseball as a freshman at Rockwall High this spring. He is the first prospect to commit to UT’s 2023 recruiting class.

Texas currently holds six commitments from 2021 recruits. The Class of 2022 at Texas boasts two pledges.


Texas last had a player from Rockwall High on its roster in 2009 (Preston Clark). Randle’s older brother, Bash, will play at Abilene Christian next year. The Randle brothers helped lead Rockwall to an eighth-place showing in the last Class 6A poll compiled this spring by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches.
