This has not been the season that Steve Sarkisian and the fan base were hoping to have, as the Longhorns are currently sitting with a 4-5 record.

Texas is in the middle of a four-game losing streak, and many fans are having flashbacks of the prior coaching regimes. Tom Herman and Charlie Strong started off their tenures in Austin with 4-5 records as well.

To make matters worse, outside of the Arkansas loss, Texas was in position to win each of the last four games.

When you take into consideration the off-the-field exotic issues, altercations with coaches, and someone recording one of the coaches berate the players for laughing after being embarrassed on national television by Iowa State — the program has not been shown in a positive light as of late.

However, the viral video of defensive line coach Bo Davis has seemed to work in the favor of Texas as a plethora of recruits tweeted their support of the program. One of them being five-star receiver Evan Stewart. On Tuesday, Bleacher Report recently named Texas as the perfect fit for Stewart.

Here is why they believe Texas and Stewart are a match made in heaven:

Texas has just three healthy receivers who have played significant snaps this year. The Horns need major help at the position alongside Xavier Worthy and Jordan Whittington.

Enter Evan Stewart, the nation’s No. 3 overall player and a virtual Worthy clone from Frisco, Texas. The 6’0″, 175-pound pass-catcher is a near lock to be an instant-impact playmaker, and while Florida has hung around his recruitment for a long time, this looks like a Texas-Texas A&M battle.

He’d be smart to go to Austin, where Sarkisian can team him with Worthy and watch them show out.

The Longhorns need a lot of help on both sides of the ball to rebuild after decades of disappointment, and Stewart would be a major PR win for the school.

Texas could likely experience even more attrition at the receiver position, but adding Stewart along with current Texas commit Brenen Thompson, this receiver group can go from dreadful to elite in no time.
