The Texas Longhorns are Big 12 champions and set to face the Washington Huskies in the College Football Playoffs on Jan. 1, but on Early Signing Day on Wednesday, the focus turns to the program’s long-term future as head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff sign the 2024 recruiting class to National Letters of Intent.
Now in the seventh year of the early signing day, the excitement formerly reserved for National Signing Day in February now comes early with the majority of prospects across the country ending their respective recruitments in decidedly un-2023 fashion — by faxing their NLIs to their schools of choice.
This StoryStream contains all the signing profiles of the new Longhorns and all other breaking news and coverage from the most important recruiting day of the year. Entering Early Signing Day, the class ranks No. 5 nationally in the 247Sports Composite team rankings with the chance to add a key flip from a recruiting rival and, at some point during the early signing period, one of the top edge prospects in the NCAA transfer portal.
The class for Texas features 22 high school pledges and two players from the portal with four consensus five-star prospects, including safety Xavier Filsaime, who flipped from Florida on Monday. In total, three recruits, including Filsaime, are ranked No. 2 at their positions — offensive tackle Brandon Baker and running back Jerrick Gibson are the others.
