Add two more important names to the visitor list for the Texas Longhorns this weekend for the game against the West Virginia Mountaineers:

Kris Boyd, of course, is a key 2015 defensive back target, and will be accompanied by his younger brother Demarco, who just received his offer from the Longhorns several weeks ago.

The Boyd brothers last visited in the middle of July, but the concern is that Kris has taken three trips to College Station since that time. The question is whether the Aggies may be starting to fade in his recruitment as a result of on-field struggles and the fact that defensive coordinator Mark Snyder could end up losing his job.

In looking at his 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions, Florida State has been making a move in recently and a trip to Tallahassee was his last official visit. Baylor is also increasingly seen as a contender, with several predictions coming in for the Bears recently.

As for the Longhorns? Since Boyd named them the leader in the summer of 2013, things haven't exactly been trending in a positive direction, making this weekend's visit an extremely important one, especially since Texas DBU alum Curtis Brown will be bringing the brothers to Austin -- his perspective on what it means to play at Texas may not be something new since he's related to Kris and Demarco, but it may be critical nonetheless.

With Demarco, one of the questions surrounds the status of a possible offer from Florida State that is reported on his 247Sports timeline, but isn't included on his list of offers. If or when it becomes official, the Seminoles would be the only other program to extend an offer to both.

Keep an eye on whether the Aggies decide to offer Demarco, as well.
