With every game for the rest of the season serving as a referendum on Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong, the Saturday evening contest against the Iowa State Cyclones is even more important because of the visitors on campus.

Houston Episcopal teammates Marvin Wilson and Walker Little highlight the list in what could serve as a crucial moment in their respective recruitments — while the season-opening win over Notre Dame boosted Texas, the subsequent losses have the ‘Horns falling back into the rest of the pack.

Lose against the Cyclones and Strong may be a dead man walking, with the recruitments of players like Wilson and Little also taking potentially fatal hits in turn.

Other prospects in attendance include Texas commits like Nacogdoches cornerback Josh Thompson and Temple defensive end Taquon Graham.
