After the success in the 2015 recruiting cycle, the Texas Longhorns have stayed aggressive in the state of Florida, offering three Sunshine State prospects on Wednesday.

There's also a big-time 2016 recruit who could make his way to Austin soon.

Four-star LB now on the radar

The first offer of the day went out to a Fort Lauderdale tight end, Nick Eubanks, while the second went out to a prospect in the same area -- consensus four-star linebacker Devin Bush of Hollywood Flanagan, according to multiple reports. The 6'0, 220-pounder is the son of the coach at Flanagan and is the No. 9 inside linebacker and No. 29 prospect in Florida in the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Bush holds over 40 offers right now, but the Crystal Ball is unanimous that he will eventually pick Florida State, with 17 predictions for the Seminoles. A trip to Michigan is in the works for this June, so Bush has some intentions of doing his national due diligence, which could help Texas get him on campus.

Eubanks' teammate picks up an offer as well

The Longhorns continue looking for a Fox end in the 2016 class and is Fort Lauderdale Heritage defensive end Brian Burns is the newest target, according to reports. Like his teammate, Burns is a consensus three-star prospect with an impressive offer list that includes schools like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Miami, Notre Dame, South Carolina, and many others.

He only has one prediction to Miami in his Crystal Ball, while his profile also lists Florida and South Carolina as schools at the top of his list.

A rangy prospect at 6'5 and 207 pounds, Burns is ranked as a weakside defensive end, but is the weight of a skill position player at this time. Still, he ran a 4.5 shuttle and posted a nearly 34-inch vertical leap at the Nike Opening Miami Regional, so his athleticism projects favorably as he continues to add weight.

Five-star prospect planning Texas visit?

Pulling consensus five-star linebacker Dylan Moses away from hometown LSU -- he attends University Lab on campus in Baton Rouge -- has always seemed like a difficult task, even before he committed to the Tigers in 2013, but he has maintained something of an open mind during the recruiting process, taking a number of visits since then.

One of his next trips could be to Austin:

Moses has some familiarity with the new coaching staff after visiting for a camp last summer. He also visited Alabama and Florida State last fall to take in games. The 6'2, 220-pounder has lived up to his early recruiting hype, as he's the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2017 class.
