Over the last few days, the Texas Longhorns have made their mark on the recruiting trail. After picking up a top 150 player in the class of 2022 in Neto Umeozulu on Monday, Texas has now landed another big-time player with the signing of Xavion Brice out of Arlington, Texas.
Brice is a 3-star wide receiver for the class of 2022 according to 247Sports. They have Xavion as the 52nd ranked athlete in his class and is ranked as a top 800 player overall as well as being a top 120 player in the state of Texas.
This signing is significant not because the Longhorns are getting a talented player, but they were able to steal him away from rival Oklahoma. Xavion committed to the Sooners back in the summer, but reconsidered and opted to sign with Texas instead.
It’s always fun to see these major flips on national signing day and I don’t think many people saw this one coming. Texas needs guys who can make an impact immediately especially after a disappointing 5-7 record this past season. Flipping a player from a school like Oklahoma is a huge in my book and Steve Sarkisian should be thrilled about grabbing a player who was once committed to their rival.
