Another home game in Austin means another lengthy list of visitors that will be on hand in Austin to watch the No. 3 Texas Longhorns take on the 24th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff have continued to stay busy on the recruiting trail, as they have tried to capitalize on the momentum being generated on the field thus far in 2023. They brought in several high-profile recruits into town for the win against Wyoming and they will once again host several high-priority recruits this weekend for their top-25 matchup against the Jayhawks.

The Longhorns will host two official visitors this weekend in four-star Mater Dei (Cali.) offensive lineman Deandre Carter and Carrollwood Day (Fla.) edge rusher Solomon Williams.

Carter is committed to Auburn but will be making his second visit to Austin and will be bringing his family with him. Texas is fresh off of landing Carter’s five-star teammate Brandon Baker earlier in the week and is making a push to try to flip him from the Tigers.

Williams on the other hand was slated to visit officially for the Wyoming game before having to cancel due to a family emergency. He is back on the visitor list and will be in town this weekend barring another last-minute change.

Another big name back on the visitor list this weekend is 2025 five-star Duncanville wide receiver Dakorien Moore. This is the second home game in a row Moore will be in Austin to see the Longhorns and reportedly there is a possibility he will be in attendance for the Red-River Rivalry against Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl. If you are a fan of recruiting data points, then you should enjoy those and file them away for later.
