The final game of September for Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian will bring another loaded group of visiting recruits to the Forty Acres for a gameday weekend at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin. No. 3 Texas will host the No. 24 ranked Kansas Jayhawks and head coach Lance Leipold in the first ranked matchup in Big 11 conference play this fall.

The highest-rated recruit in the 247Sports Composite among the Texas visitors for the Kansas game this weekend is the elite five-star Duncanville wide receiver/LSU Tigers commit Dakorien Moore. The No. 2 wide receiver recruit in the nation in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite and On3 Industry Ranking, Moore, will return to Texas for the second straight game weekend.

Moore is making his second gameday visit to Texas this fall for the Kansas game at DKR on Sep. 30. He also visited Texas unofficially for the 31-10 win at DKR over the Wyoming Cowboys on Sep. 16.

And that might not be all for Moore visiting Texas early this fall. Inside Texas reported on Sep. 30 (paid content) that Moore is “expected” to make another trip to a Texas game when the Longhorns face the No. 14 Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry game in Dallas on Oct. 7.

Texas making Moore a top priority in the 2025 class this fall

Wide receivers coach Chris Jackson and special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks are reportedly putting the “full court press” on Moore this fall as one of their top priority recruits in the 2025 class. Texas also has help from Moore’s Duncanville teammates, and Texas commits Colin Simmons and Alex January in this recruitment.

Simmons and January are expected to visit Texas for the Kansas game this weekend with Moore. Both were also on campus with Moore during his unofficial visit for the Wyoming game on Sep. 16.

It wouldn’t surprise me if this trio of Duncanville blue-chip recruits made the short trip together for Red River next weekend as Texas visitors.

Moore’s commitment to LSU hasn’t slowed the Longhorns’ efforts in this recruitment. Texas continues to essentially treat Moore as an uncommitted recruit in the 2025 class this fall. And that strategy appears to be working, judging by how many visits Moore is taking to Texas this season.
