The first big official visit weekend of the summer has arrived on June 7 for Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian. Texas hosts a half-dozen official visitors in the 2025 class from June 7-9.

Texas football hosts a critical group of visiting defensive prospects for officials this weekend

Most of the official visitors on campus for the Longhorns this weekend from the 2025 class play on the defensive side of the ball. While this is a smaller group of visitors for the Longhorns this weekend, this is still an important batch of recruits for this staff to impress over the next 48 hours.

As of the writing of this article on the evening of June 7, all official visitors have already arrived on campus for Texas. It is critical for the Longhorns to build some momentum with these recruits on campus this weekend at key position groups in the 2025 class, especially on the defensive side of the ball.

Defensive line and defensive back will be key focuses for Sarkisian and staff during this first official visit weekend in the month of June. And there is a chance Texas could land at least one commitment from recruits visiting this weekend.

Here's a look at three official visitors for the Longhorns on June 7 who are on commitment watch.

Texas hosts the No. 1 athlete in the nation in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite and On3 Industry Ranking for his official visit to Austin this weekend, San Antonio (TX) Alamo Heights five-star Michael Terry III. Terry is an interesting recruitment for Texas and the Texas A&M Aggies regarding which position the staffs are pitching him to play at the collegiate level.

Texas, Texas A&M, and the Nebraska Cornhuskers are the three top schools involved in Terry's recruitment entering summer visits. He's already taken his official visit to Lincoln to see head coach Matt Rhule and Nebraska in late April.

He left that official visit in Lincoln high on the Huskers, mostly because the pitch Nebraska is selling him on. Nebraska is telling Terry that he can get snaps immediately at wideout.

Texas and Texas A&M, meanwhile, are likely looking at Terry as a fit on defense at the collegiate level. If Texas coaches can convince Terry that the defensive side of the ball is the right place for him, then the Longhorns chances in this recruitment will shoot up.

The same could be said for the Aggies' chances with Terry if he chooses to play on the defensive side of the ball in college.

Otherwise, Nebraska seems to be the favorite here with two official visits remaining for Terry this summer.
