4-star OT Stacey Wilkins sets his Texas official visit

Can the Horns keep the Arkansas product away from the Sooners?

Stacey Wilkins

One of the designated spring official visit weekends for the Texas Longhorns will feature Camden (Ark.) Fairview offensive tackle Stacey Wilkins in Austin from May 4-6, according to Inside Texas and other reports.

The 6’7, 280-pounder surfaced on the Longhorns radar back in February when he visited for a Junior Day. Not long before that, he was making his name on the national scene with a strong performance at the US Army Combine in San Antonio.

Arkansas and USC are in the mix for Wilkins, but the perceived leader right now is Oklahoma following a visit for the spring game in Norman last weekend that produced a number of commitments. Based on a flurry of 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions for Oklahoma, head coach Lincoln Riley and his staff clearly made a big impression on Wilkins.

So, as with several other talented recruits, Wilkins will visit Texas at a time when the Horns need to make another move with the talented prospect. The presence of Jake Langi on the support staff helps, as his ability to emphasize their shared Polynesian heritage helped the Longhorns back in February.

A consensus four-star prospect, Wilkins is ranked as the No. 341 player nationally, the No. 32 offensive tackle, and the No. 4 player in Arkansas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
