The Texas Longhorns are still in the race for one of the most-talented players in the state, as five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart released his top 8 on Saturday.

Texas has seemingly been in the mix for Stewart since the beginning and even counted him among the 2022 class for a brief period of time. Stewart made his pledge to Texas in February while the class was building momentum, but announced his decommitment a month later as it became more likely that the NCAA prohibition on visits would come to a close over the summer.
The 6-foot, 175-pound receiver from Liberty (Frisco) High School is one of the fastest and most-dynamic playmakers in the state, turning in a 10.74 100-meter dash earlier this year.
If Texas can secure his services, they will have two of the top 3 wide receivers in the state from the 2022 class. He would join Armani Winfield at the receiver position, who committed to Texas immediately following the hiring of Steve Sarkisian.
