For the second consecutive recruiting cycle, Coach Pierce and the Longhorns find themselves inside the Top 10 as they wrapped a potential cornerstone class by checking in at #3 with their 2024 haul. A quartet of PG All-Americans lead the list that is particularly heavy on primary arms, along with a bevy of potential two-way stars and plenty of depth in every facet. They continue to do well in their own backyard, as twelve of the twenty-one commits hail from the Lone Star state. Recruiting Coordinator Caleb Longley and longtime D1 Head Coach Steve Rodriguez have also recruited coast-to-coast very well, as this class boasts players from eight different states including the likes of Hawaii, Iowa, Connecticut, and North Carolina.

Samuel Richardson brings exciting athleticism and some of the most prodigious power potential within the class, as he checks in as the highest ranked prospect in class. Right-hander Levi Sterling has superstar potential and is only going to continue to get better. He has been up to 95 mph as of late with excellent feel for four pitches.

A pair of primary listed shortstops complete the quartet of All-Americans as they bring their own toolshed of skills that could be class altering should they arrive on campus. Both Bryce Rainer and Theo Gillen may end up manning different positions throughout their careers but both bring monster upside offensively and will provide an immediate impact in a variety of ways with Rainer being a potential game changer on the mound as well.

Two-way standout Jason Flores rounds out the Top Five for the Horns, as the durable right-hander brings a high-octane fastball and power potential at the plate. Carson Luna, Ryan Schwartz and Matthew Scott II are position guys that could become stalwarts for Coach Pierce, while a trio of arm in Jordan Stribling, Gavin Lyons and Hawaiian Kaimi Kahalekai bring monster upside with all three potential becoming weekend rotation pieces for multiple years.

The class itself is loaded with a bevy of arms that all could provide valuable innings, a multitude of position guys that will bolster the lineup and potential stars that could have Coach Pierce and the Longhorns in Omaha annually for the foreseeable future. It also is a testament to the recruiting abilities of both Coach Longley and Rodriguez, as they have scoured near-and-far to bring this class together. Hook ‘Em Nation should be very excited about the potential of this class moving forward.
