When Will Texas Sign a Junior?

The Longhorns have already signed four scholarship quarterbacks: Blake Bortles, Baker Mayfield, DeAndre Hopkins and Jalen Hurts.

Bortllos class is the largest in the history of Texas Tech, but his recruitment will likely depend on whether Texas can get another big-time player in the class.

The Longhorn Nation knows that.

That means a good chance that Mayfield or Hopkins will remain on the board.

But Mayfield is a dual-threat quarterback with an eye on being the next Jake Rudock or Blake Sims.

Hopkins is a former All-American who was a two-time All-Big 12 performer and could go in the top five of this class.

B.J. Goodson is a senior who was also a two time All-America.

He is a true freshman.

Both have the ability to be a first-round talent.

There is also the possibility of a senior class.

Texas is currently on pace to sign 11 players, which is more than most programs in the country.

However, this class could be a little different.

There are more than a few intriguing names on the list.

Burt Eichorst is a four-star recruit who committed to the Longhorns earlier this month.

Eichwart’s family is from Texas.

Texas also signed two players from Texas this weekend.

Both are four-stars, but Texas has yet to announce the quarterback for the class, so it is hard to predict which of the two will make the leap to the NFL.

Eisernst is a six-star prospect from Florida who has yet, as of this writing, to commit to the school.

He visited the Texas campus on Monday, but no commitments have been made.

Eie will likely land in Austin this weekend after visiting Texas Tech and Texas.

His family is originally from Oklahoma.

Both of these players are committed to Texas.

There’s a chance Eichst and Eichwert could be the top three QBs in the 2018 class, but the Longhorn class will likely end up somewhere between five and six quarterbacks.

The 2017 class had five commitments and the 2019 class has four.

If this class is even remotely as big as last year’s, it will be the most prolific recruiting class in the school’s history.

Texas has the ability, and it will probably need a quarterback, to sign more than just four or five quarterbacks in the coming years.

If there is one thing the Longhogs know is true about recruiting, it is that if you are a top-notch recruiter, you can find talent on a regular basis.

You just need to be on top of it.
