The Texas Longhorns are still in the mix for a talented offensive lineman in the 2021 recruiting class, as Magnolia offensive tackle Matthew Wykoff released his top seven schools on Thursday and the Horns made the cut.

The other programs still under consideration by the 6’5, 304-pounder include Arizona State, Auburn, Penn State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and USC. After seeing his stock take off in recent months, Wykoff now has close to 30 offers.
The Longhorns offered Wykoff in the middle of January and hosted him for an unofficial visit four days later when the staff held the Elite Day event that featured numerous top prospects from the 2021 and 2022 classes.
In a loaded in-state offensive line class for the 2021 cycle, Wykoff is an important target to ensure that Texas takes advantage of the talent available — there’s some rather significant pressure on co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Herb Hand to land a high-level group this year.
A consensus three-star prospect, Wykoff is ranked as the No. 374 player nationally and the No. 33 offensive tackle, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. There are not currently any 247Sports Crystal Ball projections for him.
