Good News: Top Talented 5-Star Texas Longhorns Football Player Commits To LSU

Texas Commit Brandon Brown Switches to LSU


The Texas Longhorns faced a significant setback in their recruiting efforts as four-star defensive lineman Brandon Brown flipped his commitment to the LSU Tigers on Friday.

Initially, the Longhorns had been experiencing a surge in recruiting, securing 10 commitments since early April. However, this progress was disrupted with the loss of five-star receiver Dakorien Moore on Thursday, followed by Brown’s departure the next day.


Brown, a standout at Eau Gallie High School in Melbourne, FL, stands at 6-foot-2 and weighs 286 pounds. He was the third commitment for Texas’ 2025 class, joining quarterback KJ Lacey and tight end Emaree Winston. His shift to LSU means he will now play under former Texas defensive line coach Bo Davis, who moved to LSU this offseason.

Brown, committed to Texas since December, was expected to fill a crucial role as an interior defensive lineman. His departure leaves the Longhorns without any defensive tackle commits for the 2025 class, after securing just two in the 2024 cycle. This loss is compounded by the team’s inability to secure commitments from other key prospects like four-star Josiah Sharma, who chose Oregon, and four-star Zion Williams, who also committed to LSU.

Nationally, Brown is ranked as the No. 331 player, the No. 27 defensive lineman, and the No. 46 player in Florida according to the On3 industry ranking. He is considered a four-star recruit by On3 and, and a three-star prospect by 247Sports and ESPN.
