Saying this is a big recruiting weekend for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns program would be severely understating it — \the Longhorns are riding confidence and momentum stemming from their win last weekend over a ranked Kansas State squad in Manhattan and the coaching staff is pushing their chips into the middle of the table.
College GameDay is heading to Austin and so are a lot of recruits, including some of the five-star variety in the 2023 class. A win over the Horn Frogs on Saturday would create quite the buzz on campus with the visitors and would go a long way towards closing out this class strong for Sarkisian and his staff.
The ball is in Texas’ court this weekend and they certainly have the ability to come out on top against TCU. But they have been in this position before to capitalize on momentum and haven’t been able to close the deal. We will see if they can come out on top this time around.
Below is a list of expected visitors expected in Austin this weekend based on what info is available heading into the weekend. As most of you know, the list can and will change as players will either pop up late or be not able to come.
Five-star Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle tight end Duce Robinson
Four-star Bellflower (Cali.) St. John Bosco wide receiver DeAndre Moore (Louisville commit)

As you can see from the list above, it is going to be a BUSY weekend in Austin. The Longhorns have a huge chance in front of them to grab some momentum if they can take care of business come Saturday.
