HOUSTON – Everyone knows that recruiting trends are like the stock market.

There are ups and downs. There are trends. When it comes to recruiting it follows that same pattern as there are years where more talent stays home and in other years the majority of the best talent leaves the borders of the Lone Star State.

Well, the best of the 2020 class of Houston recruits seem to be trending towards leaving Texas.

This isn't the first time that power programs outside of Texas – which has Texas, Texas A&M;, Baylor, Texas Tech, SMU, North Texas, Rice, University of Houston, UTEP, UTSA as quality programs to go play college football at – haven't been able to lure the best from the state.

This class is starting to trend just like the 2017 recruiting class.

That year, Episcopal's Marvin Wilson – the No. 6-ranked recruit that season – signed with Florida State. His teammate, Walker Little – the No. 9-ranked recruit – signed with Stanford the same year.

North Shore's K'Lavon Chaisson – the No. 37-ranked recruit – and Cy-Fair's Austin Deculus – the No. 48-ranked recruit – both signed with LSU that year. Cy-Fair's Brock Wright – the No. 71-ranked recruit – signed with Notre Dame.

In recent weeks the same trend has been seen for the 2020 class.

North Shore's Damieon George has verballed to Alabama and Corey Flagg just committed to Miami (FL). Shadow Creek's Ronald Triplette and Jeremiah Harris, along with North Shore's Jojo Wilson have all recently committed to Kansas State.
