WR Demond Demas (Tomball): Demas wasted little time as he sent in his Letter of Intent bright and early. The five-star is the highest-rated prospect to sign with an in-state program in 2020. He checks in at No. 2 in the DCTF Hot 100. 

ATH Ja'Quinden Jackson (Duncanville): The four-star athlete inked with the Texas Longhorns, but Duncanville head coach Reginald Samples confirmed Jackson has a torn ACL and will miss the state title rematch versus North Shore on Saturday. 

WR Thad Johnson (Beaumont West Brook): SMU landed one of the day's biggest uncommitted prizes in the three-star wide receiver who checks in at No. 93 in the DCTF Top 100. SMU also flipped JuCo WR Danny Gray from TCU, so it's been a great day for up and coming WR coach Ra'Shaad Samples. 

WR/TE Darius Edmonds (Atascocita): The longtime Louisiana Tech commit opted to stay closer to home when he signed with Houston. He is a versatile pass-catcher who will be a mismatch weapon in Dana Holgorsen's offense.  

ATH EJ Smith (Dallas Jesuit): The No. 12 prospect in the state picked Stanford over Texas A&M and Florida. He was the highest-rated prospect from Texas to announce on Wednesday. 

Texas State: National Signing Day is not only about high schools signings as the Bobcats have completely overhauled the roster with key transfers and signings; RB Jahmyl Jeter (Oklahoma State), RB Brock Sturges (Arizona State), OL Alex Costilla, OL Silas Robinson (Arkansas), LB Maureese Wren (La. Tech),  WR Drue Jackson (Washington State). 

DE Alec Bryant - Shadow Creek: Virginia Tech had a big day in Texas. It secured a signing from Bryant, a four-star who was at one-time committed to LSU. The Hokies also signed Texas Hot 100 DE Robert Wooten from Stafford. 

RB Bijan Robinson - Salpointe (Ariz): Texas fans patiently waited all day to get the big news that Bijan Robinson was sticking by his commitment to UT and signing with the Longhorns. The five-star will be a pivotal addition to the offense. 

Baylor: Baylor finished last in the Big 12 recruiting standings because it only inked 10 players, but won the Big 12 social media wars powered by a campaign featuring muppets.
