Best this past weekend got underway, the Texas Longhorns were outside of 247Sports’ 2023 team recruiting rankings. Then Arch Manning happened. As well as a slew of other recruits.
Now, Texas is ranked No. 5, seemingly overnight.
From 247Sports: “Texas joins Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, and Clemson in the top five and pushes out the Georgia Bulldogs for the fifth spot. Of the top 10 Texas also ranks 5th in average commit rating at 90.84 and is tied with Clemson for 3rd in the least amount of commits in the class at 14, behind Georgia at 12 and Ohio State at 13.”
Not bad, folks.
