The Texas Longhorns are one of three teams standing out for Aurora (Colo.) Regis Jesuit tight end Jack Stoll, who plans on visiting Austin for a second time next week.

A previous visitor for the spring game, Stoll wants to experience a more quiet atmosphere to get a better feel for the school and the coaches. Texas tight ends coach Jeff Traylor took a trip out to Colorado to visit the 6'5, 225-pounder on Tuesday.

The other two schools receiving Stoll's attention are Colorado and Nebraska. He visited each of those schools for their respective spring games and plans on visiting them again before making his decision, which he would prefer to make "sooner rather than later."

Stoll now holds nine offers and is ranked as the No. 28 tight end and No. 3 prospect in Colorado, according to the 247Sports Composite. Since four of the seven tight ends offered by the Horns are currently pledged to other schools and New Orleans (La.) Brother Martin's Irvin Smith is increasingly holding a national offer list, Stoll is becoming an increasingly important target as Traylor attempts to land two tight ends in the 2016 class.

Texas was the first major program to offer the consensus three-star prospect (he was unrated when the Horns entered his recruitment) who plays numerous roles for his high school, working as a move blocker, a tight end, and a wide receiver. Stoll doesn't catch a ton of passes, but he reports a 4.68 40-yard dash and a 36-inch vertical, backing up those claims with strong movement ability on film.

Looking for a school that will prepare him for life after football, run a scheme that will showcase his skills, and provide a comfortable atmosphere, Stoll believes that Texas can offer all of that.

Will in-state connections to Colorado with three former teammates playing for the Buffs help keep him in the Centennial State? Could the tradition of Nebraska outweigh the tradition of Texas? Which offense does he perceive to be the best fit?

The answers to each of those questions will ultimately determine his destination, likely within the next month or so.
