Texas has been riding a wave of momentum on the recruiting trail as of late, and they may have some more good news coming their way.
After being the first commitment of Texas’ 2022 class, four-star cornerback Jaylon Guilbeau felt it was in his best interest to decommit from Texas to re-evaluate his options. Outside of the Longhorns, the primary players in his recruitment appeared to be TCU and Texas A&M.
Texas defensive passing game coordinator and secondary coach Terry Joseph is listed as Guilbeau’s primary recruiter. It appears to be going well as the Longhorns recently received a crystal ball prediction from Nick Harris.

This would be quite the comeback for the Longhorns in his recruiting cycle, as the day after he decommitted from Texas, there were multiple crystal ball’s entered in favor of Gary Patterson and TCU.
Texas currently hold the No. 3 class in the nation according to 247Sports, and Guilbeau will strengthen the rating immensely as he would be one of Texas’ highest rated commits in the class.
The Longhorns could use depth at the position after this season, as they are likely to lose three cornerbacks in D’Shawn Jamison, Joshua Thompson, and Darrion Dunn.
