Texas football has a ton of momentum going on the recruiting trail right now in the 2025 and 2026 classes. After landing one commitment for each class in the last week, Texas looks to cap the month of June on the recruiting trail on the right foot.

Official visitors from last weekend Texas football is trending up for in the 2025 class

Last week, the Longhorns reeled in a commitment from three-star Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend Marshall cornerback Caleb Chester in the 2025 class. Chester gave Texas their first defensive back commitment for 2025 after his official visit to Austin in early June.

Then, the Longhorns landed a marquee commitment in the 2026 class on June 17 with the elite five-star Fort Lauderdale (FL) American Heritage quarterback Dia Bell. Head coach Steve Sarkisian and QB coach AJ Milwee got the guy they wanted to build around in the 2026 class by landing Bell early this week.

Amid these two commitments for the Longhorns over multiple cycles in the last week or so was a pretty massive official visit weekend for the 2025 class. The culmination of all these events on the recruiting trail should keep Texas ascending for each cycle through the summer.

For this article, I wanted to spend some time talking about the recruitments that the Longhorns really made up a lot of ground on over the weekend. There is also one unavoidable recruiting storyline to discuss regarding Texas's top priority recruit who officially visited in the last few days.

Here are four key recruits who officially visited last weekend trending to the Longhorns.

Dakorien Moore, WR

The talk of the town on the 40 regarding recruiting buzz coming out of the big official visit weekend was Texas's efforts with the elite five-star Duncanville (TX) wide receiver Dakorien Moore. Texas really gave Moore the priority treatment during his official visit last weekend, including spending extra time with Sarkisian and the other coaches, namely Chris Jackson.

The sentiment surrounding this recruitment in the last 24 hours is that the Longhorns further solidified their lead in the race to land Moore's commitment this summer.

I mentioned on the site earlier today that a report from IT noted Texas is in the driver's seat in this recruitment for two big reasons: the move to the SEC and the official visit experience last weekend. Texas was already in a great spot with Moore entering the official visit last weekend.

The fact that he and his family had a great experience and he wants to play in the SEC makes Texas a hard school to beat here.
