Copelin Windfont, LB

Among the most common visitors for Texas in the 2025 class is the rising 6-foot-1 and 215-pound Crosby (TX) linebacker Copelin Windfont. Since last fall, Windfont has visited Texas at least four times, including for the Rice game last weekend and the July pool party/BBQ bash a little over one month ago.

Windfont told Inside Texas following the visit for the Rice game last weekend that the trip “was great” and that the “game atmosphere was amazing”.

"“I love the chants and coach (Jeff) Choate also made it a amazing experience. We got to sit and talk with him before the opener, but overall was a great day.”"

It sounds like Windfont has a great relationship with the Texas staff, namely co-DC/linebackers coach Jeff Choate. Windfont holds offers from the Arkansas State Red Wolves, Houston Cougars, North Texas Mean Green, SMU Mustangs, and UTSA Roadrunners.

Jaboree Antoine, CB

One of the top-rated 2025 visitors on campus for the Rice game over the weekend was the elite five-star New Iberia (LA) Westgate cornerback Jaboree Antoine. The No. 1 cornerback recruit in Louisiana in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite made his first visit for a game at DKR to watch the Longhorns beat Rice on Sep. 2.

Antoine told 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong that he was impressed with how Texas looked in Week 1.

"“I enjoyed my first time on the Forty Acres but what caught my eye was the amount of people and how big the stadium really was.”"

It was also big for Antoine to see his former teammate at Westgate High School, freshman Texas safety Derek Williams, in the opener last weekend. After the game, he said it could be “me in two years”.
