Which priority recruits visiting Texas football this weekend came away impressed?

Since the start of spring practice a few weeks ago, there is more clarity regarding how the big board looks at each position group for the Longhorns in the 2025 class. The spring practice visits are often telling of who the Texas coaches are really pushing for on the recruiting trail before the important summer official visits.

This is also a time for the coaching staff to continue to grow relationships with key targets on the recruiting trail in the 2025 class.

Another noteworthy headline from this big visit weekend for the Longhorns was the commitment of the touted four-star Chapel Hill (TX) running back Rickey Stewart Jr. The former SMU Mustangs commit announced his pledge to Texas over the Oregon Ducks and Baylor Bears, among others, on April 6.

Many other potential commitments for the Longhorns in the 2025 and 2026 classes were on campus for Longhorn City Limits this weekend.

Here are five key recruits for Texas impressed by their visits to Austin for Longhorn City Limits primarily on April 6.

Troy Huhn, QB

Among the early top priorities at the quarterback position for the Longhorns in the 2026 class this spring is the highly touted San Marcos (CA) Mission Hills four-star Troy Huhn. The blue-chip quarterback from California is one of just two uncommitted prospects the Longhorns have offered at the position in the 2026 class.

Huhn made his second trip to Austin of the offseason for Longhorn City Limits this weekend. On3's Steve Wiltfong reported on April 6 (paid content) that Huhn spent time with QB coach AJ Milwee and Sarkisian while also getting to watch the spring scrimmage on Saturday.

Multiple aspects of the unofficial visit on April 6 impressed Huhn and his family. He reportedly thought it was a "very positive environment" and a "great place to play at".

A couple of successful visits and an offer during the spring evaluation period has helped the Longhorns set the pace among Huhn's top schools this offseason.
