The Texas Longhorns will get a key target on campus in the near future, as Rockwall running back Chris Warren has set his official visit to Austin, according to multiple reports.

Those reports indicate that the official visit will happen on December 12.

The news comes the day after two Texas coaches visited Warren and his family:

As the tweet from his mother indicates, defensive line coach Chris Rumph and running backs coach Tommie Robinson stopped by to see Warren on Monday night and watch the Dolphins-Jets go head-to-head.

Despite pledges from three running backs in the 2015 class, Warren has remained a priority for the staff as they seek to add a power back to the group -- with the exception of freshman D'Onta Foreman, who is now listed at 215 pounds, substantially lighter than Warren.

The trip to Austin will likely be one of the first official visits for the Metroplex prospect, as he's waited until after the conclusion of his senior season to begin focusing on recruiting.

He plans on taking all five before making his decision and will only be able to take a paid trip to four more of the schools currently in his top six, which includes Iowa, Oregon, Stanford, Texas Tech and Washington. All of those programs have already received visits from the 6'2, 232-pounder with the exception of Iowa.

A top-10 running back nationally and the No. 10 player in the state according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Warren's Crystal Ball has Texas at 73%, Baylor at 19%, Texas Tech at 5%, and Washington also at 5%.
