Visit season will heat up again for Texas football on the recruiting trail this spring. In the next couple of months, Texas is set to host some of its top targets on the recruiting trail in the 2025 and 2026 classes.

One position group Texas is putting into focus in the 2025 class this spring is tight end. Texas has prioritized multiple in-state blue-chip tight ends in the 2025 class, along with holding a commitment from an out-of-state blue-chipper in Calhoun (GA) four-star Emaree Winston.

Priority 4-Star TE Kiotti Armstrong making visit to Texas football during spring practice

The most recent tight end to schedule a spring visit to Texas in the 2025 class is the highly touted Jasper (TX) four-star Kiotti Armstrong. On3's Sam Spiegelman reported on Feb. 27 that Armstrong scheduled a mid-April visit to Texas.

Armstrong will unofficially visit Texas in the midst of four spring trips he scheduled in the last week or so. He'll also see the LSU Tigers on March 23 and the Texas A&M Aggies a couple of times on March 30 and April 6.

After back-to-back weeks of visits to College Station, Armstrong will see Texas on April 13, the week before the Orange-White spring football game.

This will be Armstrong's first return visit to Texas since he made the trip to Austin for the first big Junior Day of the offseason on Jan. 20. He has also made trips to see the Miami Hurricanes and Texas A&M in the last couple of months.

Texas has made the uber-athletic 6-foot-5 and 245-pound Armstrong a top in-state priority at tight end in the 2025 class. Special teams coordinator/tight ends coach Jeff Banks and the Longhorns like the athleticism and potential that Armstrong brings as a dominant blocker and mismatch as a receiver.

Armstrong has already visited Texas and Texas A&M multiple times since the start of last offseason. He has a solid and longstanding relationship with Banks and the Texas staff. New Texas A&M head coach Mike Elko and his staff in College Station have also made a positive impression on Armstrong and his family in the last few months.

This has the makings of a classic Texas-Texas A&M battle on the recruiting trail for the top tight end prospect from East Texas.
