On Monday, the Texas Longhorns received some good recruiting news in the 2021 class, as Katy Taylor offensive guard Bryce Foster released his list of top five schools and the Horns made the cut.

LSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, and Texas A&M are the other four schools still under consideration by Foster, who currently boasts close to 25 total offers.
The 6’4.5, 318-pounder was recently on the Forty Acres for the elite recruiting event back in January along with longtime friends Hayden Conner and Jalen Milroe, who are both committed to Texas in the 2021 recruiting class.
So head coach Tom Herman, offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich, and offensive line coach Herb Hand are receiving some recruiting help from Foster’s peers, but Texas has often struggled to recruit the Katy area in recent years — it tends to lean more towards Texas A&M.
As a result, the first two 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions were made in favor of the Aggies back in 2018. Since then, Oklahoma and Texas have each received a projection to land Foster.
Now the Longhorns have cleared a key hurdle in Foster’s recruitment and can continue to work on strengthening relationships with the consensus four-star prospect, who is ranked as the No. 68 prospect nationally and the No. 2 offensive guard, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
