Offensive tackle is a major priority for the 2017 Texas Longhorns recruiting class, so being able to make an impression on Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta product Chuck Filiaga during an unofficial visit on Friday could prove beneficial for the Longhorns later in the process:

To be sure, many highly-rated prospects from other states who receive Texas offers never make it onto campus, but it remains to be seen how much interest the 6'5, 330-pounder truly has in the Longhorns.
On Thursday, Filiaga visited the Oklahoma Sooners on his tour through the region.
The consensus four-star prospect is still considered a strong lean to the home-state Trojans. He's ranked as the No. 97 prospect, the No. 17 offensive tackle, and the No. 13 player in California, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
