With less than one week remaining until the start of summer visits for Texas football, activity on the recruiting trail has dramatically picked up late this month. Earlier this holiday weekend, Texas picked up commitments from the Coleman brothers, adding three recruits to the 2025 class.

Texas football trending for multiple key 2025 recruits entering summer visits

Three-star Cedar Hill (TX) interior offensive linemen Jordan and Devin Coleman committed to the Longhorns in the 2025 class, along with their brother and defensive lineman Isaiah Coleman. Isaiah is joining Texas via the preferred walk-on program in the 2025 class.

Texas and offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood have added multiple "big humans" to the trenches in the 2025 class this month. Along with the Coleman brothers on the offensive side of the ball, the Longhorns also picked up a commitment from three-star Port Neches-Groves (TX) offensive lineman Jackson Christian on May 13.

Momentum should keep picking up for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail in the 2025 and 2026 classes with some big visit weekends upcoming in June. The first weekend of June will see dozens of recruits from the 2025 and 2026 classes visit Texas for the Elite Camp (starting June 1).

Then, the first big official visit weekend for the Longhorns in the 2025 class begins June 7.

Here's a look at three 2025 official visitors for this summer that were crystal-balled to pick the Longhorns with their commitments.

Caleb Chester, CB

Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend Marshall three-star Caleb Chester has been a top in-state priority at cornerback in the 2025 class for the Longhorns dating back to last offseason. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and cornerbacks coach Terry Joseph have made it clear that they want Chester as a key part of this defensive back class for the Longhorns in 2025.

Chester has visited Texas more often than any other school since the start of this offseason. If you read to tea leaves based on his visit patterns over the last five or six months, that tells you Texas should be considered the favorite in this recruitment entering the summer.

Texas is scheduled to host Chester for an official visit in early June. He is also scheduled to officially visit the LSU Tigers (May 31), Texas A&M Aggies (June 14), and Arkansas Razorbacks (June 21) this summer. Chester already took an official visit to Fort Worth in early May to see the TCU Horned Frogs.

This recruitment has been building up to be a classic in-state battle between Texas and Texas A&M. And with how this recruitment has been trending for the last few months, combined with the numbers at defensive back getting pretty thin for the Aggies in the 2025 class, it looks like Texas is out front entering the rest of Chester's four official visits.

Multiple 247Sports insiders have crystal-balled Chester's commitment to Texas in the last few weeks, as the Longhorns have remained the school with the most buzz in this recruitment. The same could be said for Inside Texas/On3, with multiple On3 RPMs being placed for Chester to give his commitment to the Longhorns since early in the spring.
