In a few weeks, Texas football will begin hosting official visitors on campus for the important summer visit season for the 2025 class. Texas's first big official visit weekend of the summer is set to begin on June 7.

Entering summer official visits, head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns are looking to get on the path to start locking up a top three or five class nationally for 2025. Texas has a good foundation in place in the 2025 class, holding commitments from seven prospects, including a half dozen blue-chips.

All seven of the recruits currently committed to the Longhorns in the 2025 class all have the potential to finish as blue-chip prospects for this cycle.

Summer official visits should get the ball rolling for Sarkisian and staff on the recruiting trail to load up the 2025 class with commits at key positions on both sides of the ball. Texas is set to host over four dozen visiting recruits from the 2025 class over three big official visit weekends in June.

Among the roughly 50 official visitors who are currently scheduled for the Longhorns in June, many of them are top-rated five-star prospects Texas is prioritizing. A looming storyline entering summer official visits is who will be the first five-star to commit to the Longhorns in the 2025 class.

Here's a prediction of the first five-star official visitor who could jump in the boat in the Longhorns 2025 class this summer.

Michael Fasusi, OT

Texas's top in-state priority offensive line recruit in the 2025 class, five-star Lewisville (TX) offensive tackle Michael Fasusi, will be a focal point of the final weekend of official visitors for the Longhorns this June. Fasusi is scheduled to officially visit four schools this summer, including the LSU Tigers (May 22), Texas A&M Aggies (June 6), Oklahoma Sooners (June 14), and Texas (June 21).

This recruitment has boiled down to a classic battle on the trail between Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma. All three schools have built great relationships with Fasusi and his family. Texas offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood has maintained a steady presence in this recruitment.

Oklahoma offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh also has a longstanding relationship with Fasusi. But the Sooners momentum in this recruitment has seemingly waned as Texas A&M and Texas have been in the consistent discussion among Fasusi's top schools entering summer visits.

Inside Texas' Justin Wells reported on May 18 (paid content) that this recruitment "still trends UT" entering Fasusi's official visit circuit in late May and June.
