Texas Longhorns 5-star target Jaime Ffrench sets commitment date and updates recruitment

Texas' eyes are on five-star wide receiver Jaime Ffrench from Mandarin (Jacksonville, FL).

Not only is he one of the Longhorns' top targets in the 2025 class, his signing would also significantly increase their chances of signing two more five-star pass catchers in Dakorien Moore and Kaliq Lockett.

Luckily for Horns fans everywhere, they won't have to wait long for his decision, as Ffrench revealed to On3's Chad Simmons that he will make his commitment on August 30th and then choose between Texas, LSU, Miami, Tennessee and Ohio State.

However, this was not the only news Ffrench announced on Friday.

According to Ffrench, the Longhorns – who he had called the frontrunners just days ago – are now back in the running with the other four schools, thanks in large part to his recent visit to LSU, where Ffrench gained a new perspective.

“I don't have a leader,” Ffrench told Simmons. “LSU changed it, they made it competitive. But in those top 1-2-3 schools, everyone is in now. It's very open again right now.”

Currently, Ffrench is considered a five-star recruit and the No. 23 player nationally, the No. 5 wide receiver and the No. 4 player in Florida according to the On3 Industry Rankings.

Ffrench was a dominant force last season at Mandarin. As a junior, he caught 62 passes for 1,247 yards (20.1 yards per game) and 14 touchdowns. In his sophomore season, he caught 44 passes for 671 yards and scored five touchdowns.

Luckily for Texas, they'll get another chance to bring Ffrench to campus, as he'll visit the Horns again June 21-23, along with other top recruits, including the Longhorns' centerpiece of the class of 2025, quarterback KJ Lacey.
