Welcome to the Daily Dose, a daily collection of random musings surrounding Longhorns athletics and recruiting. Today we'll look at a few players the Longhorns could offer next.

CB Jaylon Lane (Nacogdoches, Texas)

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound cornerback is one of the hottest commodities around. He picked up 12 offers in a seven-day span a few weeks ago.

While Texas hasn't joined the mix the Longhorns are keeping in touch, and should expect a visit soon. He's building a great relationship with defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn.

Lane recently told our Greg Powers that Ohio State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and LSU are the schools that stand out to him right now.

OL Madison Akamnonu (Arlington, Texas/Bowie)

When you look at him you'll wonder why he doesn't have one already. At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, the three-star offensive tackle was by far the most physically gifted of all the linemen at the Dallas NFTC.

With offers starting to roll in for him, don't be surprised to see Texas join the mix once it sees him in action this spring. He already has offers from Arkansas State, Colorado State, Houston, Kansas State, Missouri, North Texas, SMU, Texas State, Texas Tech, and Wake Forest.

The numbers could be in Akamnonu's favor. Texas has offered 11 OTs, which includes two commitments, five committed elsewhere, and five from out-of-state.

Here's some video of Akamnonu at the NFTC:

DE Louis Brown (Burton, Texas/Burton)

The lines of communication are open and flowing between the Longhorns and this three-star Baylor commitment.

The 6-foot-6, 207-pound Brown has visited Texas a couple of times, including for a junior day in February. He loved everything about the visit and is just hoping to add the offer to play things out at this point.

In addition to Baylor, Brown has offers from Lamar, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Texas Tech, Utah State, and Washington.

Here's some video of Brown:

RB Kameron Martin (Port Arthur, Texas/Memorial)

It's not a matter of if, but when for this four-star running back, who grew up idolizing the Longhorns and former UT running back Jamaal Charles.

Texas is being extremely diligent in handing out offers to 2016 recruits. Charlie Strong has only handed out nine to date with none of those going to running backs.

At some point they will offer an RB in this group and, when they do, Martin will be on the short list of RBs they go after.

Right now he has Florida State and Florida as his top two schools, but I fully expect Texas to jump right to the top when it does offer.

QB Jack Beneventi (Benet Academy, Ill.)

He's strongly committed to Iowa from what he tells Scout.com's Beth Long. But that's not going to stop him from taking a visit to Texas on June 8.

Not only will the three-star, rated No. 28 at his position, visit the Longhorns but he'll also take a visit to Louisville at some point. He had strong ties to Charlie Strong at Louisville (his reasons for visiting Texas) and wants to meet the new staffs at each school.

Given who all Texas has offered at the position it wouldn't be a stretch to see an offer extended to Beneventi during or after his visit.
