Texas wraps up National Signing Day with a strong finish.

Texas’ 2024 recruiting class, while not reaching the top five for the first time since 2021, remains robust and features notable talents such as edge player Colin Simmons, safety Xavier Filsaime, and wide receiver Ryan Wingo, along with a mix of promising 4-star and 3-star prospects. A significant move by Coach Steve Sarkisian was flipping Filsaime from Florida in December, addressing a crucial position need. Additionally, Texas secured two impressive pass rushers from the Top247, including standout Colin Simmons and Zina Umeozulu.

Sarkisian expressed optimism about the potential impact of these edge players on the team’s pass rush. The Longhorns’ defensive lineup is further strengthened by three Top247 defensive backs from the 2024 class. Although National Signing Day was relatively calm in Austin, the focus now shifts to how these recruits will contribute to the team. With nine recruits in the final Top247 rankings, Texas stands among the elite in the 2024 cycle, trailing only seven other programs.

As Sarkisian completes his third full-cycle haul, there’s excitement and curiosity surrounding these incoming players. Many, including Filsaime and Simmons, are anticipated to see extended playing time early in their college careers.
