The biggest official visit weekend of the summer thus far for Texas football is wrapping up on June 16. Texas had a lot of buzz on campus surrounding this big official visit weekend, with 16 visitors from the 2025 class in Austin over the last couple of days.

Texas football has another successful June official visit weekend for the 2025 class

Among the 16 official visitors on campus this weekend, three are currently committed to the Longhorns in the 2025 class. There were also a handful of other top-50 type recruits who are top priorities for head coach Steve Sarkisian and staff in this cycle.

Texas has one more big official visit weekend remaining before the dead period arrives in late June. Next weekend will be another big group of official visitors among key targets in the 2025 class.

The last two official visit weekends went about as good as one could hope for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail. Texas landed a commitment since the first June visit weekend for the 2025 recruits, three-star Missouri City (TX) Fort Bend Marshall cornerback Caleb Chester.

And it sounds like more commitments could be on the way for the rest of June and early July for the Longhorns in the 2025 class, with another successful visit weekend in the books.

Here are five key official visitors the Longhorns impressed during this big mid-June visit weekend.

Brandon Brown, DL (UT commit)

Texas likely did what it needed to keep four-star Melbourne (FL) Eau Gallie defensive lineman Brandon Brown committed after a successful official visit this weekend. Brown said the official visit to Texas in the last couple of days "exceeded expectations".

What really stuck out about Brown's comments and reaction regarding his experience during the Texas official visit this weekend was how he continued to hit it off with DL coach Kenny Baker. Brown was impressed by the experience he had spending time with Baker during his official visit, mentioning how genuine of a person he is and his background coaching defensive linemen in the NFL.

Brown has already taken official visits to see the LSU Tigers (May 31) and Tennessee Volunteers (June 7) early this summer. The only official trip he has left this summer is to see Norman and the Oklahoma Sooners next weekend (June 21-23).

It sounds like Brown will make his final decision after the Oklahoma official visit wraps up on June 23.
