A pair of the state’s top talents in Texas will be on the Forty Acres next weekend as five-star Angleton safety BJ Foster and four-star Houston Lamar wide receiver Al’Vonte Woodard will visit the Texas Longhorns on March 25, according to multiple reports.

Saturday’s visit will mark the second time each have visited Texas in as many months, as Foster and Woodard were both on hand for Texas’ junior days in February. It wouldn’t be a surprise if that becomes three times in three months for the elite prospects if each make a return trip to Austin for the Longhorns spring game.

As noted yesterday, four-star Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green is scheduled to visit Texas on March 25, as well, so Saturday will serve as a huge opportunity for Tom Herman and his staff to roll out the red carpet for a trio of key targets legitimately considering the ‘Horns.

Foster currently has the Longhorns in his top five, along with Ohio State, LSU, TCU and Michigan. With a summer decision in mind, Texas appears to be the early frontrunner with Ohio State and LSU as the biggest competition.

Woodard is expecting to release his top 10 soon and is really high on the ‘Horns, so expect Texas to make that cut. Meanwhile, Green has said that his relationship with the Texas staff is the best he has among any staff recruiting him, so that’s clearly something that’s going to play into the ‘Horns favor as he begins to trim things down.

All three prospects — Foster, Woodard and Green — rank within the top 10 in Texas with Foster serving as the headliner of the trio, ranking as the nation’s No. 11 player, No. 1 safety and No. 1 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.

With things really beginning to heat up in each of their recruitments, Texas should feel good about where it stands at the moment. Saturday should only enhance their interest in Herman’s program.
