Devon Campbell, Kelvin Banks, and Quinn Ewers lead a class heavy on Texas-raised players as the Texas Longhorns signed more than 30 players in the 2022 recruiting class.
Banks, out of Humble, Texas, was the first of three five-stars to sign with Texas and is listed as the No. 15 player in the country according to 247Sports.com. Banks committed to Texas after considering LSU, Oklahoma State, Oregon, and Texas A&M, among others.
Campbell, who announced his commitment on signing day, is the top interior offensive lineman in the ’22 class and should start immediately for the Longhorns. His final two schools were Texas and arch-rival Oklahoma.
More than half of the class is made up of four-star players, and more than half of the class is made up of prep players from Texas. At least one of the signees, quarterback Maalik Murray of Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, California, has made it clear he intends to enroll in January in order to try and compete for the starting quarterback job in 2022. Casey Thompson and Hudson Card shared those duties in 2021. Plus, Quinn Ewers was the No. 1 player in the 2022 class before he re-classified for 2021 and enrolled at Ohio State last fall. Ewers is quite possibly the most sought-after quarterback prospect since Trevor Lawrence.
The Longhorns finished the 2021 season with a 5-7 record in their first season under head coach Steve Sarkisian. The Longhorns had one of the longest losing streaks in program history during the season, and only a win over Kansas State to end the campaign kept the Longhorns from losing each of their final seven games.
