Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns landed a new commit on Thursday in the class of 2024 with four-star defensive lineman D’antre Robinson.
Robinson chose the Longhorns over a whopping 60 different schools including flagship programs like Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, LSU, Michigan, Florida, USC, Tennessee, Florida State, and more.
Robinson spoke to On3 Sports’ Chad Simmons to discuss his reasoning for committing to the Longhorns and expressed his belief in Steve Sarkisian and his staff saying, “I see Texas on the rise under Coach Sark. In the near future, Texas is going to be a top SEC school. Texas is getting great recruiting classes, the coaches are great and I am definitely excited about my future at Texas. I feel like this will be one of the best decisions I make in my life.”
D’antre Robinson choose the Longhorns over every single team in the SEC with the exception of the Oklahoma Sooners who didn’t send an offer to Robinson. He is set to join the Longhorns in 2024 alongside fellow four-star prospects like RB Jerrick Gibson CB Jordon Johnson-Rubell, WR Freddie Dubose, and CB Aeryn Hampton. Robinson currently ranks as the 353rd-overall player in the class of 2024, the 37th-ranked DL in the country, the 50th-ranked prospect in the state of Florida, and is listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index.
Robinson will get a shot to watch his future team take the field as a member of the Big 12 Conference for their final season on September 2nd when they kick off their 2023 campaign against Rice.
