Compared to the rest of spring practice, this weekend will be a relatively light one regarding the quantity of visiting recruits that Texas football hosts on campus. But the quality surely won't be lacking among the handful of blue-chip prospects in the 2025 and 2026 recruiting classes who are scheduled to be in Austin this weekend.

Top visiting recruits expected to see Texas football this weekend

Texas hosted over a dozen visiting recruits from the 2025, 2026, and 2027 classes amid the first weekend of spring practice last week. And head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns are expected to have a few dozen visiting recruits on campus amid spring practice for each of the next few weeks.

There is also a big group of visiting recruits expected for the annual Orange-White spring football game at DKR on April 20.

Spring visit season will largely set the stage for the Longhorns entering the critical summer official visit season. As we've become accustomed to over the last few offseasons, Sarkisian and the Longhorns have a big-time stretch of weekends scheduled for official visits in June.

Here are three top blue-chip visiting recruits that the Longhorns are hosting in Austin this weekend.

Lamont Rogers, OT

The big 6-foot-7 and 310-pound Mesquite (TX) Horn high-four-star offensive tackle Lamont Rogers was initially reported to be making it to campus in Austin on March 29 for a spring visit this weekend.

But Inside Texas reported on the morning of March 29 (paid content) that Rogers didn't make it into Austin on Friday due to the holiday on Good Friday. There's reportedly a good chance that he makes it to Austin for a single-day trip to Texas on March 30.

The status of this recruitment for the Longhorns could hang in the balance of whether Rogers actually shows up on campus this weekend. The Texas A&M Aggies and Oklahoma Sooners are both currently sitting above Texas among the list of Rogers' top schools in the area entering summer official visits.
