Flipping five-star offensive tackle Kelvin Banks from Oregon was arguably the biggest win on the recruiting trail for the Texas staff.
Banks fills a major need on the offensive line that have had their struggles over the past few seasons.
The Houston product became the first five-star offensive lineman to sign with the Horns since the 2009 recruiting cycle.
Banks is rated the No. 2 offensive tackle prospect in the country and the No. 4 overall player in the state of Texas for the 2022 recruiting class, according to 247Sports composite.
After Banks committed to Texas, the flood gates began to open for the Texas offensive line class. The Longhorns grabbed commitments from Cam Williams, Neto Umezulu and Mailk Agbo less than a week from Banks’ announcement.
Earlier this month, Banks dropped his 2021 senior highlight tape via Twitter.

It is rare for an offensive lineman to contribute early into their college career but Banks is the type of talent who could easily see the field in year one.
