The Texas Longhorns survived the cut Tuesday night when weak-side defensive end K'Lavon Chaisson announced his top 10 on Twitter:

The four-star Galena Park North Short product listed his top 10 in order, listing Oklahoma and Houston as the leaders and Texas as the final team included. Texas A&M wasn't among those still in contention, although Chaisson attended the Aggies' Junior Day and visited College Station in April.

Texas has yet to host the nation's No. 5 weak-side defensive end, despite Chaisson holding an offer since January 6. If Texas manages to get him to the Forty Acres anytime soon, the Longhorns' standing with the Houston-area target likely improves.

At 6'4, 221 pounds, Chaisson is undersized for a Power Five-level defensive end. Considering his bullish pass rushing off the edge and open-field athleticism, Chaisson projects more as a hybrid Fox end or outside linebacker at the next level.
