Where Texas targets land in the updated 247Sports 2023 rankings

·2 min read

Recruiting has begun to pick up with the 2023 class. With the COVID-19 pandemic slowly fading away, prospects are going to be allowed to visit college campuses for the first time since March 2020. Virtual tours have been conducted over the past year, but nothing beats seeing something in person.

Texas is going to have a weekend dedicated to the 2023 class this June. Steve Witflong of 247Sports reported Arch Manning would be on campus the weekend of June 11. Other recruits such as Rueben Owens are expected in Austin at the same time. A huge opportunity for Steve Sarkisian and his staff to impress early in the cycle.

247Sports updated their rankings on Wednesday for the 2023 class. After California finished their delayed spring season, some west coast prospects got a bump, along with national recruits showing out on the 7v7 scene and in camps.

Here are where Texas’ top targets land in the 2023 class updated rankings:
