1. Anthony Evans is the very best offensive prospect from the better San Antonio space since Malcolm Brown within the 2011 class.

Harris’ take: FACT. Oklahoma commit Anthony Evans has game-changing velocity for an offense that hasn’t fairly been seen earlier than within the San Antonio space, particularly on the extensive receiver place. Due to that elite observe velocity and his improved skillset that features a developed route tree and a slipperiness by way of tacklers, Evans will be capable to contribute early and infrequently in Norman, which is one thing that his predecessors within the San Antonio space couldn’t actually say previously.

Holland’s take: FICTION. It is undoubtedly comprehensible how the query might be requested, given Evans’ notoriety for his velocity and being the most important offensive title on the legendary Judson Excessive College squad this season. The San Antonio space might be floor zero for expertise produced that not everybody is aware of about. Town has been house to many proficient prospects since former Longhorn Malcolm Brown in 2011. There’s been distinctive expertise, similar to 2013 Madison Excessive College operating again Marquis Warford, 2014 Steele Excessive College operating again Justin Stockton, 2021 Harlan Excessive College extensive receiver Dre Spriggs, 2021 Cornerstone Christian quarterback Lucas Coley and Harlan Excessive College QB Kannon Williams, to call just a few.

2. Devin Sanchez has the very best likelihood at difficult Dakorien Moore for the highest prospect in Texas in 2025.

Harris’ take: FACT. Devin Sanchez is the subsequent potential five-star expertise at Houston-area powerhouse North Shore, and it is ironic that he’ll battle with Duncanville extensive receiver Dakorien Moore for the highest spot within the state given the 2 groups’ latest historical past with one another in previous years. Sanchez’s size, velocity and protection means put him in an elite group throughout all recruiting courses in terms of school potential, particularly at this younger of an age. The truth is, his bodily improvement is one thing that he has a leg up on Moore with, and if he can again it up with a standout sophomore season we might be taking a look at a brand new state No. 1.

Patterson’s take: FACT. Cornerback is such a premium place and Sanchez appears to be a premium prospect early on in his highschool profession. He has the body, athletic profile and all-around package deal to be a high-level defensive again, resulting in Alabama, Texas and others to supply. There are a ton of WRs that can possible be within the combine. I’m additionally an enormous fan of tight finish Davon Mitchell – who’s a complete mismatch within the passing sport – however Sanchez has the very best shot at taking that No. 1 spot away from Moore at this time limit because of his expertise/place mixture.

3. Texas’ efficiency towards Alabama moved the needle from a nationwide perspective with recruits throughout a number of courses.

Harris’ take: FACT. Regardless of the loss on Saturday, Texas made its presence identified on a nationwide scale with its efficiency towards Alabama that resulted in a slender loss to the Crimson Tide. In speaking to recruits over the course of the final week throughout the nation, it is clear that there’s extra consideration on what Texas will do that week and all through the season now that Steve Sarkisian is beginning to put the whole lot collectively in Austin. With a robust 2023 class already in movement as effectively, I see the potential solely rising from right here on out if Texas can stack extra spectacular performances on the sphere.

Gorney’s take: FACT. Whether or not it was Tausili Akana or many different prime prospects in attendance final weekend – particularly these within the 2024 and 2025 courses – everyone noticed Texas not solely virtually upset then-No. 1 Alabama however look higher than the Tide in lots of areas. That can go away an amazing impression within the recruiting panorama as a result of the place was rocking, Texas put collectively an excellent efficiency and prime recruits will need to be part of that. QB commit Arch Manning and WR pledge Johntay Cook are each energetic recruiters amongst different pledges. The Longhorns are getting into the precise path now below Sarkisian and even in a dropping effort Texas might need gained huge on the recruiting path.
