The final big weekend of June official visitors could arguably be the biggest of the three that Texas football has hosted early this summer on the recruiting trail for the class of 2025. Texas hosts around 18 or 19 official visitors for this upcoming weekend, which is the final visit weekend before the dead period on June 25.

Texas football begins its final June official visit weekend in less than 24 hours

This weekend's official visitors will begin arriving on campus at Texas on June 21. Like the last two weekends, the official visitors for this upcoming weekend will last a couple of days through June 23.

Among Texas's nearly 20 official visitors this weekend will be multiple five-star recruits. Headlining this group of official visitors starting June 21 among the top position groups in the 2025 class are the offensive line, wide receiver, defensive back, and defensive line.

While head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns have made positive strides for the 2025 class over the last couple of official visit weekends, not all developments have resulted in commitments yet. But it wouldn't be out of the question to see the Longhorns getting at least a handful of commitments in the 2025 class before the July 4 holiday.

Here are five of the most important Texas official visitors from June 21-23.

DJ Sanders, DL

You won't hear much coming from the four-star Bellville (TX) defensive lineman DJ Sanders' recruitment this summer. While Sanders has already taken a couple of official visits, he plays thing pretty close to the chest regarding speaking to the media and sources around him.

All you have to do is look at the visit pattern to see which schools Sanders is truly interested in. He's already taken officials to see the Michigan Wolverines and Texas A&M Aggies early this summer.

Texas is the final school Sanders officially visits this summer before the dead period next week. We mentioned in a piece on the site this week that Texas has some "quiet confidence" in this recruitment for Sanders this summer.

If Texas really knocks it out of the park this weekend during Sanders' official visit, there's a good chance that Kenny Baker and Co. could land the No. 1 DL recruit in Texas in the 2025 class in the On3 Industry Ranking.
