Visitors continue to flock to the Forty Acres with the Texas Longhorns hosting Mission Hills (Calif.) Bishop Aliemany athlete Larry Turner-Gooden on Monday.

The previous Texas staff offered the consensus four-star prospect in the spring of 2020 and the new staff continued to recruit Turner-Gooden when they arrived in Austin. But Turner-Gooden opted to commit to Arizona State in late February.
Now there may be an opportunity for Texas and other programs to get involved with Turner-Gooden because of alleged recruiting violations in Tempe that are being called a “PR nightmare.”
The 6’0, 179-pounder is a two-way standout in high school who would project at safety for Texas, a position of need since the Horns only took one player at the position in the 2021 recruiting class and missed on Commodores transfer Donovan Kaufman this spring.
In the 2022 class, Texas holds a commitment from Allen’s BJ Allen, who visited over the weekend, and is also in pursuit of Beaumont West Brook’s Bryce Anderson, a scheduled visitor in the coming days.
Turner-Gooden is ranked as the No. 68 player nationally and the No. 7 athlete, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
