We are doing a recap and player analysis of all of the top prospects who visited the 40 acres and Longhorns staff this past week. These are some very familiar names you may have heard about in one very in particular athlete and 2022 Garlands High Schools 4-star receiver Jordan Hudson.
We first take a look at 2023 Darion Gullette who has been having himself a tremendous camp season. Making stops at Baylor, Texas A& M and the University of Texas and picking offers at all three stops. Gullette is a beast on that defensive line. He’s got a big, tall frame at 6’3″ 225, he looks like solid muscle and the guy can fly. He shows some impressive speed off the edge, can drop back in coverage, make a play on the ball and take the football in himself. His highlight film was a movie to watch. Great offer here for Texas.

2023 Eaton High School Jaden Platt picked up his 7th Division I offer from the Longhorns this week. His other offers are from schools such as Florida State, Oklahoma State, Standford, and others. Platt is a big receiving tight end that could seriously be a strong contender for a NO.1 or NO.2 outside wide receiver that’s how good his route running and speed are. He shows he can be a dangerous vertical threat down the field and give the QB a big target at 6’4″ 235, he’s got a large catch radius with his long arms and ability to high point the ball.
After a great camp and conversation with @CoachSark & @CoachJeffBanks , I am very thankful to have received an offer to play at the University of Texas!!! #HookEm @emiller_ram93 @BrandonMac29 @CoachBakerTX @EatonEagleFB @SkysTheLimitWR pic.twitter.com/qyy9TmGtvw

One of the top up-and-coming linemen prospects out of the Houston area is Klein Cains Gibson Pyle. He’s got a big athletic frame for offensive linemen and already stands at 6’4″ 260 and was only a freshman last season. Pyle shows he can be a dominant offensive lineman and shows some beautiful footwork in the passing and or running game. I think he will continue to add mass to his frame and will definitely be one to keep your eye on in the future. He has a lot of interest from different SEC schools including Ole Miss and Texas A&M.
Thank you @TexasFootball for an amazing visit! 🤘🏼@MikeRoach247 @samspiegs @HamiltonESPN @bmecamps @IronWillSC @justinallen_13 @ZachIsGreat_ #HookEm #Longhorns #CO2024 #AllGasNoBreaks #UT pic.twitter.com/6fTBdhwENC

Probably the biggest and most controversial name to step foot in Austin was ex-Sooners commit Jordan Hudson. A 4-star receiver out of Garland and is arguably one of the best in his class in the state if not the nation. No matter the path he got there, he made it onto the forty acres even after all of those pictures of him hanging the horns down. He has been in deep communication with coach Steve Sarkisian and staff and it should be interesting to see if he wants to play with a QB whom Hudson is very familiar with in QB Maalik Murphy whom Jordan has played with this past 7-on-7 season. Whether or not that bond could have any benefit will remain to be seen. One thing we do know is that Hudson is dangerous running routes. He’s got a quick burst off the ball, has fast feet, and can cut up the field in his route running. He’s got the catch radius of a 6’6″ receiver with his amazing vertical ability and long arms. He can get in the end zone and put up a lot of points on the board and make it look routine.

We will cap it off here with one running back out of the state of Louisiana in 2023 Union Parish 4-star running back Trey Holly. Sophomore season Holly pilled up over 3,100 total yards and 48 total touchdowns. He may be a little undersized at the position at 5’8″ 180 but no mistake this guy can flat our ball out on the field. Holly shows some great vision running in between the tackles and can take the ball all the way to the house anytime he touches the ball He’s got that breakaway speed and can make a few moves to make people miss out in space. Very special player and would be a great addition to the backfield for the longhorns.
