It was originally expected that the former Air Force Falcons sophomore forward Rytis Petraitis would be officially visiting Texas last weekend. But Hank South of Horns247 reported early this week (paid content) that Petraitis arrived on campus for his trip to Texas on the night of April 14.

Petraitis thus became the first portal visitor that the Longhorns hosted on campus this week.

The 6-foot-7 and 210-pound forward from Arlington, TX, is one of the many transfers from Texas attending out-of-state schools that Terry and the Longhorns have targeted early in the spring window. Petraitis attended Oak Ridge High School in the DFW Metroplex before spending the first two years in college at the Air Force Academy.

It sounds like the Longhorns are also in a good spot in this portal recruitment roughly 24 hours after Petraitis' visit to the Forty Acres early this week. Texas has already added one impact forward commitment from the portal this spring, Kent from Indiana State.

Petraitis could play that switchable role between the three and the four to help Texas rebound, defend, and score inside the arc. Last season, Petraitis broke onto the scene as one of the best scoring forwards in the Mountain West, averaging a career-best 15.7 points per game on 48.5 percent shooting from the field and 34.9 percent from deep.
