Despite a head coaching change and staffing shuffle, the Texas Longhorns still managed to scrape together the nation’s No. 17 2021 recruiting class, according to 247Sports’ rankings.
247Sports also put Texas as the recruiting runner this year to the Oklahoma Sooners.
But that’s nothing new – Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley has been having a moment.
Hopefully newly hired Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian can influence that in the future.
