As the first official visit weekend for new head coach Steve Sarkisian seemed to go pretty well, it will be interesting to see how the dominoes fall around the college football recruiting landscape in the coming weeks. The return of official visits to the college football recruiting landscape will clearly change the game this offseason on the trail. And the 2022 and 2023 Texas football recruiting classes will have to find a way to keep up with the frantic pace on the trail this summer.
Sark and the Longhorns hosted some Louisiana and Texas native prospects on the Forty Acres last weekend. Most notably, Texas hosted the likes of four-star running back TreVonte Citizen, three-star athlete Jeremy Patton, and an eventual transfer portal addition in the former Alabama Crimson Tide running back Keilan Robinson.
Is anyone getting away from Texas football recruiting this month?
But the second weekend will be just as big for the Longhorns with another set of big official visitors set to make their way to the Forty Acres. Texas will need to make sure they make the right impression again on their visiting prospects of the 2022 and 2023 recruiting classes.
Texas also saw some big visit weekends for big-time competing schools on the recruiting trail like the Texas A&M Aggies, LSU Tigers, and Oklahoma Sooners. Watching what happens on the trail with those big-time rivals this summer will be important for Texas fans in the grander scheme of things.
Specifically, Texas A&M seems to be getting in with a few of the bigger Longhorns targets for the next two recruiting cycles. Here’s a look into three particular prospects trending to Texas A&M following the first visit weekend in college football.
