At last, Texas's series of official visit weekends throughout the month of June has come to an end. Additionally, Monday marks the start of a new dead period which will run through July 24. As a result, this past weekend was a prime opportunity for the Longhorns coaching staff to make a great impression on recruits before having the chance to see them again in the future.
Today, we will discuss some of Texas's visitors and will list all of the team's offers since my last article.
Longhorns defensive back Josh Thompson shared a picture of 2022 four-star safety Bryce Anderson and 2022 four-star cornerback Jaylon Guilbeau, standing next to Longhorn legend Michael Huff and his Rolls-Royce. Obviously, the Longhorns were taking advantage of every weapon at their disposal, including Michael Huff's Jim Thorpe award which was also showcased.
Important to note, Anderson is set to make an announcement regarding his future school on the Fourth of July. Currently, Texas has a plethora of 247Sports crystal ball predictions in favor of landing Anderson.
Speaking of the safety position, 2023 four-star safety Mikal Harrison-Pilot also shared his pleasure with Texas via Twitter. Along with Harrison-Pilot, highly regarded recruits such as 2022 five-star offensive tackle Devon Campbell and 2022 four-star defensive lineman KJ Miles were also on campus as well.
In recent years, Texas has struggled to land the state's top talent on the offensive line, however a commitment from Campbell could very well start a favorable domino effect. As of now, the Longhorns are the favorite to land Campbell, who has several 247Sports crystal ball predictions in favor of Texas.
Another recruit that has been predicted to join the Longhorns is 2022 four-star athlete Arlis Boardingham, who was able to make the trip out to Texas to visit the Forty Acres. Boardingham, a Southern California product, is one of the many players from the Los Angeles area that coach Steve Sarkisian has been targeting.
Lastly, 2022 four-star defensive lineman Justice Finkley seemed to enjoy his Texas visit. However, after Finkley's official visit to Michigan just over a week ago, he received two 247Sports crystal ball predictions in favor of the Wolverines. As a result, it is safe to say that the Longhorns had some work to do this past weekend in order to sway Finkley to Texas.
