Texas’ list of prospects visiting for the Oklahoma State game is continuing to grow less than 24 hours before kickoff. Some of the top prospects in the country plus current Longhorn commits will be in attendance.

Arch Manning, Malik Agbo, Jacoby Matthews, and recent Alabama tight end commit Jaleel Skinner are some of the names planning on being in town this weekend.

You can add five-star wide receiver Evan Stewart to the group as well. He confirmed on Friday morning a trip to Austin would be in store, just a week after watching the Red River Shootout in Dallas.

Stewart instantly becomes the top priority from the 2022 class on a visit. The need at wide receiver is too good for Texas to miss out on. Alabama and Florida have been chasing after him as well but getting a visit two weekends in a row is monumental.

An impressive offensive performance (mainly from Xavier Worthy) and a win in front of Stewart would give Steve Sarkisian the ability to make a strong close-out push. Texas once had the five-star locked down but needs to make sure they can end the recruitment for good.

Landing a commitment from Brenen Thompson was the first step in Sarkisian’s rebuild of the wide receiver room. Adding Stewart would fast-track the project into an almost complete stage. It’s all about speed.

Don’t forget about four-star Armani Winfield either. He may not be as quick as Stewart and Thompson, but is one of the best pass-catchers in the state.

Those three would make up for one of the best pass-catching hauls in the country.

On the 247Sports composite, Stewart is the No. 1 player in the state of Texas and the top receiver in the class. On the national scale, he ranks as the No. 3 overall prospect.
