First of all, here's who isn't visiting.
Otaro Alaka isn't visiting Austin. The talented 2014 linebacker from Cypress Falls hosted both Texas coach Charlie Strong and Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin on Thursday, and while the possibility existed that Texas could get a visit this weekend, Alaka has chosen to make his decision with the information that he has. Stay tuned, because a decision on that could come pretty quickly.
Armanti Foreman and D'Onta Foreman canceled their visit to Missouri because of the inclement weather. Will they make a trip next weekend? That remains to be seen. The news that they were going to visit Columbia came as an initial shock, but now, with a week of knowing what the Foremans are thinking, and knowing that Missouri is a potential threat, Texas could find a way to slam the door shut on this one.
Garrett Gray didn't visit Cal this weekend either, though it's unclear what his future plans are.
Now, onto those who ARE making visits this weekend.
Texas is hosting both Chris Nelson, a defensive tackle out of Lakeland (Fla.) and Nick Harvey of Fort Bend Travis. Both are among Strong's top remaining targets, as the Longhorns have a glaring need for both defensive tackles and a No. 1 cornerback in this class. If Texas could somehow pull in Harvey, a longtime A&M commitment who has given the Longhorns multiple looks, then it would take a significant amount of sting out of losing on several other top-ranked defensive backs through the process. Nelson is one of two really good-looking defensive tackles on Texas's board, along with Poona Ford, both of whom were committed to Strong at Louisville.
Ford canceled his visit to South Carolina this weekend, making several staffs breathe a sigh of relief that he's apparently willing to head away from home. But somewhat last minute, Ford added another visit to his itinerary, with him taking a trip to Purdue this weekend. Like Nelson, Ford is pretty close to a must-get in this class, and he's slated to visit Missouri next week.
For the second consecutive week, John Bonney will take a visit elsewhere. The Houston Lamar safety visited Auburn last week, and he's headed to Baylor this week along with fellow Houston Lamar star and Baylor commitment Ira Lewis. At the same time, 2015 Texas commitment Patrick Vahe, who was thought to be headed to Baylor's Junior Day this weekend, will not be going after meeting with Texas offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Joe Wickline.
Abilene Cooper standout and Texas commit Lorenzo Joe is visiting TCU this weekend. Joe remains committed to Texas, but it's impossible to feel totally safe about any prospect who is taking visits to other schools. At the same time, one-time Texas commitment and now two-time TCU commitment Emanuel Porter is visiting LSU this weekend. After a good meeting with Texas receivers coach Les Koenning, Porter is set to visit Texas on Jan. 31.
