To say that this is a big recruiting weekend for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns program would be a gross understatement — the Longhorns are riding on the confidence and momentum that flow from their win last weekend over a ranked Kansas State squad in Manhattan , and the coaching team is there to shove their chips in the middle of the table.
College GameDay travels to Austin, as does many recruits, including some of the five-star variety in the Class of 2023. A win over the Horn Frogs on Saturday would cause quite a stir among visitors to campus and go a long way in helping to end this class, strong for Sarkisian and his staff.
The ball is with Texas this weekend and they certainly have the ability to come out on top against TCU. But they’ve been in that position before to capitalize on the momentum and failed to close the deal. We’ll see if they can prevail this time.
The following is a list of expected visitors expected in Austin this weekend based on information available for the weekend. As most of you know, the list can and will change as players are either late or unable to come.
