A pair of key Texas targets will tour the Forty Acres this month.
Lawrence Keys III, a wide receiver out of McDonogh 35 (La.), and Katy defensive tackle Moro Ojomo, have set up official visits to Texas for the weekend of Jan. 26, per a report from EJ Holland of 247Sports.
At this point in the recruiting process with the second National Signing Day looming, Texas has zeroed in on its top remaining prospects and Keys and Ojomo can each be included in that bunch. As is currently stands, Texas’ 21-man 2018 class features a pair of wide receiver signees in Brennan Eagles and Al’vonte Woodard, but the Longhorns staff has remained adamant on bringing in three freshman wide outs. As one of the best available options, the staff is doing its due diligence with Keys. And obviously, with only Keondre Coburn committed and still considering other options, defensive tackle remains a major need in an otherwise loaded class, which is where the need for Ojomo comes in.
The staff visited both on Wednesday.
At the moment, Texas appears to be on the outside looking in with each of the two coveted prospects.
Keys will officially visit Notre Dame the week before touring Austin and the Irish own 91 percent of his Crystal Ball projections to date. Ojomo, on the other hand, is considered a Texas A&M lean, but along with the Longhorns, Oklahoma is squarely in the mix and made an impression during his recent official visit. Ojomo will visit Notre Dame with Keys, as well, before the two arrive in Austin the following weekend.
If Texas is going to swing things in its favor with the four-star receiver and three-star defensive tackle, it will have to do so over the Jan. 26 weekend with both in town for official visits.
SMU will receive Keys’ final visit, while Ojomo will spend the weekend before National Signing Day at Oregon.
