On Wednesday afternoon, Texas Longhorns fans finally received some good news about its recruiting class.

Yes, that's said in jest. Earlier this month, the Longhorns hit the recruiting lottery by landing a commitment from five-star quarterback Arch Manning.

The nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning picked Texas over Georgia, Alabama and a host of other elite programs. However, the Longhorns weren't done just yet.

This afternoon the team also landed a commitment from five-star wide receiver Johntay Cook. Naturally, the college football world flocked to social media to talk about the news.

"Texas continues to add some top-tier future weapons for Arch Manning and its QB room. Brennan Marion and the Longhorns have now already landed the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 8 rated wide receiver recruits in Texas," college football writer Matt Zenitz said.

Texas fans are loving the latest news, of course.

"Just when I was starting to have withdrawals, you hit me with a big one!!!" one Texas fan said.

"Texas is officially back," another fan said.

Is Texas back?
