You have to spend money to make money. That’s the golden rule the Texas Longhorns are following on the recruiting trail as the program prepares for its transition from the Big 12 to SEC. According to 247Sports, Texas was actually a top four spender in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
From 247Sports: “Texas will have no issues with its transition into the SEC in 2024 as a top recruiter evidenced by the classes Steve Sarkisian put together in his early tenure with the Longhorns. Texas spent nearly $2.5 million on this 2023 haul, a group that ranks No. 3 nationally behind Alabama and Georgia. The Longhorns signed four five-stars, including No. 1 overall player Arch Manning. They invested a lot into visiting the gems of this cycle along with a plethora of four-star signees. Many of those guys will be immediate impact players in Austin.”
