The Texas Longhorns are set to receive a visit from Honolulu (Hawai’i) St. Louis defensive tackle Faatui Tuitele on Saturday, a visit that was originally tentatively scheduled back in February and then more recently locked in for this weekend.

The Longhorns officially extended an offer to Tuitele around the same time that the 6’4, 299-pounder decided to visit.

Tuitele also took a recent trip to Oregon and just visited Oklahoma and LSU in recent days — Texas was his third choice on that particular trip.

USC currently has the lead in his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, with Oregon and Alabama also holding picks.

Tuitele is a consensus five-star prospect ranked as the nation’s No. 23 player and the No. 1 player in Hawai’i, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
