Over the weekend, potential future Texas Longhorns visited campus, including 2023 four-star running back Cedric Baxter Jr. hailing from Disneyland’s neighbor, Orlando, Florida.
That’s not all, though, folks.
Top 2023 quarterback Arch Manning is also set to visit campus later this month, again. It’ll be his third trip of the month, behind the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs.
