Kyle Flood was an ace recruiter for Texas throughout the 2022 cycle, bringing in one of the top offensive line hauls in the country.
The Longhorns are hoping he keeps that momentum flowing into the 2023 class. Flood appears to be on the right track, as five-star offensive lineman Francis Mauigoa included Texas within his top schools on Monday. Alabama, LSU, Clemson, Oklahoma, Georgia, Florida, Miami, Auburn, USC and Oregon also made the cut.
Mauigoa is rated the No. 2 offensive tackle in the country for the 2023 recruiting class and the No. 2 overall prospect within the state of Florida, according to 247Sports composite rankings.
USC, Alabama, Miami and Oregon appear to be three leaders in his recruitment at this time. Mauigoa has unofficially visited Florida and Miami over the last year.
247Sports national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins raved about Mauigoa’s potential at the collegiate level.
Massive two-way lineman who shows high level potential on both sides of the offensive line. Projects as an offensive tackle or a defensive tackle and where his body is at in a few years will likely determine what side of the ball he plays on. Was a more dominant player on defense where he showed a ton of raw power and physicality. He can dominate at the point of attack, has a very quick first step and can run down plays from behind. He might have more upside as an offensive tackle as he’s already 6-6 and young for his grade. He’s a smooth athlete, very fluid in his movement and has the feet to excel as a pass blocker and the toughness and mean streak to be a finisher in the run game. He comes from a football family with two older brothers who played or will play at the next level and Francis has the highest upside in the family by a big margin. He projects as a impact upper tier Power 5 starter and future high round NFL draft pick
