The June 5th camp passed. The June 12th camp passed. Heck, nearly the entire month of June passed. Yet, no visit to Austin from five-star Tempe Corona Del Sol offensive tackle Andrus Peat, one of the top prospects in the country at any position.
The Longhorns have always seemingly had a better chance to pull Peat out of Arizona than to convince Florida product John Theus not to follow his brother to Georgia and leave the Southeast. With Peat now scheduled to visit Austin for three days from July 21st to the 23rd,and Stacy Searels will finally have that all-important opportunity to showcase the program to Peat in advance of a possible official visit in the fall.
Fortunately, the Longhorns are getting some help on the recruiting trail with Peat. Fellow Arizona star Connor Brewer may be as good of a recruiter as anyone currently on the staff and Peat is Brewer's latest project, as the quarterback stays in touch with the big lineman, singing the praises of the Texas program. In fact, Brewer's dedication to convincing Peat to join him in Austin could lead the quarterback to hop a plane from an Elite 11 camp in California directly to Austin to accompany Peat on his visit, a story broken by Recruitocosm.
Beating out David Ash won't be easy when he finally reaches the 40 Acres, but Brewer has already endeared himself to Longhorn fans with his continuing recruiting efforts, proving that a kid doesn't have to be from Texas to bleed burnt orange. If Peat's visit goes well, another out-of-state prospect could discover that he has burnt-orange tinted blood coursing through his veins.
