LOOK: Elite 2023 edge Colton Vasek poses with Arch Manning

·1 min read

Four-star edge Colton Vasek out of Austin Westlake made the quick trip to campus this weekend for the Longhorns’ recruiting BBQ and pool party.

Vasek is a top priority for the Longhorns staff. He is the No. 19 edge rusher in the nation and a top-30 player in the state of Texas for the 2023 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports composite.

At 6-foot-6, 225 pounds, Vasek has an ideal frame to grow into an excellent edge rusher at the college level. He already has a knack for pressuring opposing quarterbacks. Vasek picked up 10 sacks and 56 total tackles in his junior season at Westlake, en route to a state title.

Five-star quarterback and Texas commit Arch Manning is also on campus this weekend, doing his part to help the Longhorns’ recruiting efforts.

Vasek posted to Twitter a picture with the No. 1 prospect in the nation enjoying their visit.
