AUSTIN, Texas — What started here yesterday will change the Texas football world for years to come.

National Signing Day was a rousing success for Texas, and there is plenty of buzz for who the new Longhorns will be on the heels of an uplifting 2018 season.

As No. 14 Texas sets to head to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl against No. 6 Georgia on New Year’s Day, the team stands to strengthen its already blossoming core depth with a slew of highly-touted athletes committing to becoming Longhorns.

The early signing period in December is still relatively new, as it was implemented for the first time last year. That is in addition to the traditional February signing period slated for Feb. 6, 2019.

Feel like a new Texas star yourself and get your hands on new Second Season gear.

The Horns hauled in a number of highly-touted recruits on National Signing Day Wednesday.

Head coach Tom Herman lavished praise on the Longhorns new recruits, who are set to bolster the roster in 2019 and on into the new decade.

The University has urged strong caution in sharing the information of tickets fans might have as well, in order to prevent fraud or misuse of tickets by unknown parties.

“If you choose to post about your tickets on social media, please do not post photos of your tickets or share in any way your seat locations and/or bar codes. Even friends can unknowingly share that information which in the hands of the wrong person can cause your tickets to be invalid and not scan in at the venue. If that happens, you would be denied entry,” the University said in a release on its website.

The Texas Athletics Ticket Office is closed Dec. 24-26. If you have questions about your order after Dec. 25, staff will be in the office to answer questions on Dec. 27-28 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Contact the ticket office at 512-471-3333 or Ticket.questions@athletics.texas.edu.
