We are roughly one week away from the start of this highly anticipated visit season for Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian on the recruiting trail during the month of June. Texas will be hosting more than 50 official and unofficial visitors from the 2024, 2025, and 2026 recruiting classes next month, which is something that will literally begin on June 1.

The first official visitor that the Longhorns are set to host in June is the highly touted four-star Laguna Beach (CA) tight end, Ryner Swanson. Texas is literally set to host Swanson on his official visit to Austin on June 1.

There will also be a plethora of 2025 and 2026 recruits that visit Texas unofficially during the first week of June. Texas is reportedly (per Inside Texas) set to host more than two dozen unofficial visitors on the weekend of June 3 among 2025 and 2026 recruits.

And given that the Longhorns have yet to land a single commitment in the 2025 class and only have two non-special teams commits in the 2024 class, there could be a bit of a wave of momentum coming about in June. Here’s a look at three of the June visitors that the Longhorns could land during the first week of the month.

Parker Livingstone, WR

One of the top wide receiver targets to watch in-state heading into the summer for the Longhorns is the touted four-star Lucas (TX) Lovejoy product, Parker Livingstone. Texas is standing on very solid ground right now with Livingstone and his camp, as new wide receivers coach Chris Jackson and this staff have made it known that he should have a spot in this class if he wants in.

Jackson has a great relationship with Livingstone, which sticks out since he prioritized this recruitment after he was initially hired to replace Brennan Marion as Texas’ wide receivers coach earlier in the offseason. It’s also worth noting that Sark loves what he sees when evaluating Livingstone’s game.

The 6-foot-4 and 190-pound wideout has good hands, is an excellent route runner, and plays with good physicality on the boundary. There is a good fit here on the 40 for Livingstone in Sark’s offense.

And while Livingstone isn’t one of the first-week official visitors in the 2024 class for the Longhorns, I do think there’s a chance that he could commit prior to his trip to Austin in late June. Texas has a lot of the buzz in this recruitment this spring.

It could be appealing to Livingstone to be able to jump into this class and strike while the iron’s hot during his official visit on the weekend of June 23, when there are so many top blue-chip priority recruits also on campus.
