Action on the recruiting trail is about to heat up for Texas football in the 2025 class entering the spring. Texas will host a few dozen blue-chip visiting recruits from both the 2025 and 2026 classes during spring practice from mid-March through late April.

A handful of Texas targets in the 2025 class are also expected to announce their decisions in the next couple of months.

Which top blue-chip recruits are trending to Texas football in early March?

The most important part of the spring visit season for the Longhorns, though, is continuing to build these relationships on the recruiting trail for the critical summer official visits in June.

In the last couple of offseasons, head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns staff have prioritized loading up on the recruiting trail during June official visits. This offseason looks to be no different in that regard with how many top targets on the trail who are scheduled to officially visit Texas in June.

Over the next couple of months, the picture of how the Longhorns 2025 class could shape up will get clearer. Here are three elite 2025 recruits trending to the Longhorns in March.

Michael Fasusi, OT

Arguably Texas's top in-state priority at offensive tackle in the 2025 class is the elite Lewisville (TX) five-star Michael Fasusi. The No. 2 offensive tackle recruit in the nation in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite is considering Texas among his top schools a few months before he takes summer official visits.

Fasusi will officially visit Texas during that big late-June weekend (specifically from June 21 to 23). That could very well be Texas's biggest official visit weekend of the entire offseason. He'll also unofficially visit Texas for the first time this offseason on April 9.

The fact that Sarkisian, OL coach/OC Kyle Flood and the Longhorns scheduled Fasusi for that official visit weekend just goes to show how much they're prioritizing him in this offensive line class for 2025.

Flood has built a great relationship with Fasusi and his family. Fasusi has taken multiple successful visits to Austin since last offseason. And it sounds like the communication between Texas's coaches and Fasusi is as consistent as any school pursuing him on the recruiting trail this offseason.

Texas will have to fend off the Oklahoma Sooners, Texas A&M Aggies, LSU Tigers, and Mizzou Tigers in the race to land a commitment from Fasusi. But the Longhorns are as well positioned as anyone to land Fasusi given the proximity to home, the relationships, and Flood's proven track record of recruiting and developing top-tier offensive tackles.
