Texas flips 4-star DB, signs in-state prospect for class of 2023 away from TCU
Texas landed another significant win on the recruiting trail Tuesday, picking up a late addition to the 2023 recruiting class. This time, the Longhorns also flipped a player away from a pledge to TCU.
The player is Warren Roberson, a 4-star safety out of Red Oak High School in Red Oak, Texas. Roberson committed to TCU in October but Steve Sarkisian’s Texas program made a late push after the first of the year.
Here’s when Roberson made the move official with full theatrics involved in the decision:

Roberson joins a 2023 recruiting class for the Longhorns that is ranked No. 3 nationally by the 247 Sports Team Composite Rankings. He is the 18th prospect in the class rated as a 4-star prospect or better.
