With a record crowd on hand and putting a 37-14 beating on the USC Trojans, the Texas Longhorns hosted nearly 50 targets and commits from the 2019, 2020, and 2021 classes and handed out offers to at least four of those in attendance.

Texas extended offers to two offensive linemen from Taylor (Katy) High School in Hayden Conner and Bryce Foster, bringing their offer count for 2021 to four.

Conner, a four-star tackle, is the No. 27 player in his class and the No. 5 player in the state of Texas, according to 247Sports. He holds 14 offers and is currently considered a Texas A&M lean, but with three years of recruiting ahead and offers continuing to roll in things will heat up.

His opposing bookend at Taylor, Foster, also received a scholarship offer on his visit to the Forty Acres on Saturday. Foster, the No. 29 player in the country and the No. 6 offensive tackle, according to 247Sports, boasts a nearly-identical offer list as his teammate. It’s clear from the existing offers and the ones that went out Saturday that tackle is a priority for Texas

The Longhorns extended an offer to another Katy product as well.

Tunmise Adeleye from Tompkins High School became the third defensive end offered for the 2021 class. Currently unranked according to 247Sports, Adeleye holds five offers, including the Alabama Crimson Tide and Texas A&M Aggies. Expect him to climb the recruiting rankings as the offers continue to pour in.

Expect these to be the first of many offers, and possible commitments to come out of one of the biggest recruiting weekends of the season.

Three-star 2020 offensive tackle Jake Majors also notched a Texas offer on Saturday night as well.

The Prosper product also holds offers from Stanford, Washington, Colorado, and Houston, among others. The Cardinal are the only team with Crystal Ball picks placed thus far.
