From Longhorn Confidential;
How many more players will Texas sign?
Texas wants to finish with at least 20 players and the Longhorns feel good about three prospects. Tom Herman’s program is in the lead for Collins and four-star wide receiver Kelvontay Dixon, the younger brother of UT running back Keaontay Ingram. Dixon decided to forgo signing in December as he was helping Carthage win a Class 4A Division I state championship.
Houston and UTSA are also in the mix with the Cougars getting an official visit on the final weekend before signing day. Dixon was on UT’s campus last weekend. The 6-0, 180-pound athlete was committed to Arkansas before the Razorbacks fired head coach Chad Morris. Dixon caught 157 passes for 2,511 yards and 37 touchdowns over his final two seasons.
The third prospect Texas hopes to add is Duncanville cornerback Ennis Rakestraw. The Longhorns are in a battle with Alabama and Missouri for his signature, but get to make the last impression with his official visit starting Friday. Rakeshaw’s recruiting stock rose during Duncanville’s run to the Class 6A Division I state championship. He was named the defensive player of the year by the Dallas Morning News and is a three-star prospect with 28 offers.
Other offered prospects Princely Umanmielen and Savion Williams are also considering Texas. Umanmielen is a defensive end from Manor who was a one-time UT commit; Williams is a wide receiver from Marshall who received a late offer from the Longhorns. He’ll also be on an official visit to Texas this weekend.
