The Texas Longhorns have landed one of the best players remaining in the 2024 cycle, with five-star wide receiver choosing Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns over the in-state favorite, Missouri.

Wingo, a 6-foot-2, 205-pound wideout from St. Louis (MO), is the No. 26 overall player and No. 7 wide receiver in the class of 2024, according to On3.

With 42 total offers, Wingo could’ve chosen any school in the country but chose Texas over the likes of Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Miami, among others.


“What stood out most was for sure that offensive system, being able to come in and compete to play was huge in my decision,” Wingo told On3. “Coach Sark is known for getting his wide receivers the ball and getting them ready for the next level.”

Wingo’s relationship with the coaching staff at Texas was a major reason why he chose the Longhorns, with wide receiver coach Chris Jackson playing a major role.

“My relationship with the coaches is great,” the five-star wide receiver said. “Knowing that I will be comfortable with the coaches is also a big thing. I think I’m closest with coach Jackson. They plan on utilizing me every way they can.”

With Wingo aboard, Texas now has the ninth-ranked class in 2024, and the fifth-ranked class in the SEC, trailing only Georgia (1st overall), Florida (3rd), Alabama (5th), and Texas A&M (6th).
