For the first time this summer, Texas football hosts over a dozen official visitors for this upcoming weekend. June 14-16 sees Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian host 16 official visitors from the 2025 class.

First of two big official visit weekends are set to commence for Texas football on June 14

The festivities for this weekend's official visitors have already begun as of the writing of this article on the evening of June 14. These official visits will last all day on June 15 and through Sunday morning on June 16.

From a quantity and quality perspective, the Longhorns are arguably hosting their most important group of official visitors from June 14-16. The final two weekends of June official visits will be the biggest after Texas had a smaller group of recruits on campus from June 7-9.

Texas has multiple five-star recruits who are scheduled to be on campus for official visits in the next couple of days. Some of the most important position groups for this official visit weekend are receiver, offensive line, defensive line/edge rusher, and linebacker.

Here are four recruits on commitment watch for the Longhorns during the June 14-16 official visit weekend.

Kelshaun Johnson, WR

During the spring, Texas was in a great spot to win the recruitment for the speedy four-star Hitchcock (TX) wide receiver Kelshaun Johnson in the 2025 class. It sounded like Texas was pretty close to getting a commitment from Johnson during one of the multiple trips he took to Austin unofficially early this offsaeson.

But the Texas A&M Aggies have closed the gap for the leading Longhorns in this recruitment in the last few weeks. Johnson had a successful official visit to College Station last weekend, which has given the Aggies a big boost in this recruitment early this summer.

The fact that Texas A&M gives Johnson the ability to get immediate playing time on offense and is so close to home for him and his family could give the Aggies the edge when it's all said and done.

Texas and wide receivers coach Chris Jackson gets a chance to counter Texas A&M's momentum with Johnson during his official visit this weekend. If Texas makes a big enough impression on Johnson and his family in the next couple of days, that could be enough to put the Longhorns back in the driver's seat here.
