According to records obtained by The Athletic, Texas spent roughly $630,000 on two recruiting weekends in June including the weekend Arch Manning came to town...
quote:

Manning's visit to Texas cost the program a pretty penny. The Longhorns spent almost $280,000 on Manning and nine other recruits. So far, four of them have committed to the university.

Per the report from The Athletic, Texas put that $280,000 to use for that visit.

From June 17-19, the Longhorns provided recruits with a full spread in their rooms at the Four Seasons Austin, a photoshoot at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium and a trip to driving range Top Golf. They were also provided with multiple lavish meals and a breakfast at the home of head coach Steve Sarkisian.

280k for "lavish meals," a photoshoot, and top golf, huh? Makes sense.

And this, ladies & gentlemen, is a great example why Texas has a football culture problem.

If having a starting AND backup QB who can shred Bama’s defense is a culture problem, sign me up.
