Texas State has 49 new players in 2023 football recruiting class

SAN MARCOS — Texas State’s 2023 recruiting class is nearing the half-century mark after three more transfers pledged this week: West Virginia defensive backs Caleb Coleman and Jaylon Shelton and Colorado offensive tackle Alex Harkey. And with Texas linebacker Derrick Brown committing last Friday, the Bobcats now have 49 new players, including 35 transfers from FBS or FCS schools and seven junior college players.

“There’s nobody that is going to out-recruit me as a head coach,” Texas State coach G.J. Kinne said after Monday’s ceremony for renovations to the school’s football performance center. “I think that is showing. We just need to continue to show the support of donations of fans and NIL — because we’re getting into that world — and that’s going to continue to be a big part of it. This is just the beginning.”
