The first big official visit weekend is upcoming on June 7 for Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian. This weekend features the smallest list of official visitors for Texas regarding the number of recruits who will be on campus. But there's still no shortage of important targets at key position groups for Texas's staff in the 2025 class for the visitor list on June 7.

Texas football kicks off summer official visits on Friday

Festivities for this official visit weekend begin on June 7. Most of the official visitors will stay through the end of the day on June 8. There is also the possibility that the Texas staff meets with some of the official visitors for an extra day, depending on how things go this weekend.

Most of the official visitors play on the defensive side of the ball that the Longhorns are hosting from June 7-9. Defensive line and defensive back are two key position groups to keep an eye on.

I don't think there will be much action to watch regarding actual commitments for the Longhorns in the 2025 class this weekend. But Texas's staff needs to set the stage with recruiting on the defensive side of the ball for this cycle in the next few days.

Here's a breakdown of four of the most important official visitors for the Longhorns this coming weekend.

Caleb Chester, CB

The only cornerback recruit officially visiting Texas this weekend is the priority Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend Marshall three-star Caleb Chester. The 6-foot-2 and 175-pound cornerback from the Houston area is among the top priorities in the state at the position in the 2025 class this summer.

Texas is Chester's second of four official visits he currently has on the docket for May and June. He's already taken an official visit to Fort Worth to see the TCU Horned Frogs in early May. After the Texas official, Chester will visit the Arkansas Razorbacks (June 14), and Texas A&M Aggies (June 21).

At the moment, it looks like Texas holds at least a slight lead in this recruitment, with Texas A&M very much still involved. Getting Chester to shut down his recruitment this weekend would obviously be a massive victory for Terry Joseph and Blake Gideon with in-state defensive back recruiting in the 2025 class.
