The 2022 Texas basketball recruiting class arrived at the Forty Acres last summer with hopes that they could elevate this program to become one of the top teams in the nation and push for the Big 12 titles and NCAA in 2023. And while the contributions of the 2022 signing class have yet to live up to the hype, Texas is still poised to compete for a Big 12 title and make a deep run in the tournament. NCAA.

Texas signed four high school recruits in the class of 2022. It should also be noted that there were two transfer gate players that Texas signed in the class of 2022. But we are not including the two gate players for the Longhorns in this conversation, only high school recruits.

247Sports’ Eric Bossi did an article this week looking back at the top 10 recruiting 2022 men’s hoops classes in the country, where Texas ranked No. 6. The sentiment of that article reflected the idea that even though this class hasn’t lived up to billing quite yet, there’s still a ton of room for growth.

And if this core of the 2022 Longhorns class is able to find a real breakthrough in the next month, the impact on this team would be immeasurable.

With that in mind, here’s a look at a reclassification for the 2022 Longhorns signing class a few months into the 2022-23 season.

It’s easy to forget what a four-star Northfield Mount Hermon (MA) point guard Rowan Brumbaugh was as a high school rookie. Brumbaugh has been ranked among the nation’s top 100 high school prospects for the 2022 cycle by nearly every major recruiting service, aside from 247Sports.

And even 247Sports listed him as the nation’s No. 132 rookie for the 2022 cycle in the Top247.

The size and basketball IQ that Brumbaugh brings to the table at point guard has made him a special prospect that has caught the eye of the likes of the Kansas Jayhawks, Maryland Terrapins, Oregon Ducks and the Wisconsin Badgers.

But Brumbaugh eventually found himself in a crowded situation in Texas’ backcourt last offseason, which caused him to take a redshirt year. Because of this, Brumbaugh gets an inconclusive rating in this reclassification for the 2022 Longhorns class.

I always love what Brumbaugh brings to the table for this Texas backcourt unit. He’s a smart two-way player who brings plenty of length and excellent court-to-table vision. Brumbaugh should be in the conversation to be one of the top three guards in the rotation for the Longhorns next season.

Reclassification: inconclusive
