One of the top overall talents in the 2020 class is touring the Forty Acres yet again, as five-star Scottsdale (Az.) Saguaro cornerback Kelee Ringo is making an unexpected unofficial visit with the Texas Longhorns today, as first reported by Inside Texas’ Justin Wells.

The news of Ringo’s surprise visit to Austin marks his third trip to Texas since last November. The nation’s No. 2-ranked cornerback also visited during the Longhorns’ 24-10 win over Iowa State. Shortly after that trip, Ringo named Texas in his top 15 before returning a few weeks later for another visit in early December.

As is, Ringo’s two previous trips to Texas marked the most of any school in his recruitment, so the fact that the Arizona product is back in Austin — and earlier than expected — is tremendous news for the Longhorns, which are considered to be among the headliners in his recruitment, along with Washington.
Though he’s originally from the Pacific Northwest, Ringo has a key tie to Texas in that his position coach, Bryant Westbrook, is a former Longhorn, as he played cornerback for Texas in the mid-1990s before becoming the 5th overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft.
An elite coverage corner, the 6’2, 205-pound Ringo is currently ranked as the top talent in Arizona and as the No. 12 player nationally, per the 247Sports Composite. As a junior, Ringo totaled 31 tackles, in addition to one pass breakup and one interception.
