The huge Manning domino is expected to have a ripple effect across the country.
The Longhorns are trending in the right direction for multiple top prospects after the news of Arch Manning’s commitment to Texas broke on Thursday.
Four-star running back Cerdic Baxter Jr received three 247Sports crystal ball projections to Texas. Baxter is a top priority for Steve Sarkisian and running backs coach Tashard Choice.
247Sports composite ranks Baxter as the No. 3 running back in the nation and the No. 11 overall prospect in the state of Florida in the 2023 cycle.
Texas is competing with Florida, Miami, Texas A&M and Arkansas to land a commitment from the elite running back.
Baxter was impressed by the program during his official visit in the second week of June. Texas appears to be in good shape with the Orlando product.
