It appears another team has gotten a big boost in recruiting recently.

ESPN released their updated recruiting rankings on Wednesday, and the rankings revealed that Texas had moved up to the No. 2 spot ahead of Miami and Penn State. The move bumped Miami out of the Top 3 for the first time in a few months.

The biggest move for Texas recently was the commitment from four-star tight end Malcolm Epps. Epps had originally been committed to Alabama before decommitting back in February. Epps became the 17th member of Texas’s 2018 class.

Ohio State and their 16 commits — three of which rank as Composite five-stars — still hold the No. 1 spot at both ESPN at 247Sports.

Another team that has made great gains recently is the Oregon Ducks. Willie Taggart and co. have been rewarded with several major commitments over the past few weeks, and Oregon has moved up nearly 10 spots in ESPN’s rankings over the past two months. The Ducks currently sit at fifth in ESPN’s rankings, which is a far-cry from the school’s decline in recruiting under former head coach Mark Helfrich.
