The Texas Longhorns aren't afraid to spend a lot of money on recruiting. They made that abundantly clear this summer.
According to records obtained by The Athletic, Texas spent roughly $630,000 on two recruiting weekends in June. That includes the weekend that Arch Manning came to town.
Manning's visit to Texas cost the program a pretty penny. The Longhorns spent almost $280,000 on Manning and nine other recruits. So far, four of them have committed to the university.
Per the report from The Athletic, Texas put that $280,000 to use for that visit.
From June 17-19, the Longhorns provided recruits with a full spread in their rooms at the Four Seasons Austin, a photoshoot at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium and a trip to driving range Top Golf. They were also provided with multiple lavish meals and a breakfast at the home of head coach Steve Sarkisian.
Though it costs a lot, Texas' investments have certainly paid off.
At the moment, Texas owns the No. 2 recruiting class in the country for the 2023 cycle. Sarkisian's 2023 class contains a trio of five-star recruits and over a dozen four-star recruits.
If the Longhorns continue to recruit at this rate, they could eventually join the CFP picture.
