The Texas Longhorns expect at least one other prospect to join quarterback commit Sam Ehlinger on campus this weekend, as Scottsdale CC tight end Salvatore Cannella is on record as a planned official visitor.

The 6’5, 230-pounder picked up his Longhorns offer on Tuesday and quickly made the decision to visit. A mid-term enrollee, Cannella has also visited Maryland and holds an offer from Auburn.

Texas was expected to host Georgia running back commit Toneil Carter, a Houston Langham Creek product, but he cancelled his reported plans to take an official visit to Austin.

At the position, Ohio State running back commit JK Dobbins is still a target, but another player to watch is former Iowa pledge Eno Benjamin, who told Bleacher Report that new head coach Tom Herman has been in contact with him.

Herman offered Benjamin at Houston and the 2017 US Army All-American is interested in Texas despite the fact he grew up on Oklahoma fan, but isn’t convinced an offer will come his way.

Another possibility is Cougars pledge Daniel Young, who plays for the brother of Longhorns assistant Corby Meekins at Houston Westfield, the program Meekins used to coach. Young is the No. 58 running back nationally.
