Spring Game Visitors List

Coaches always feel like they've got a chance with a recruit if they can just get them to their campus.

Well Charlie Strong, you'll get plenty of chances on Saturday.

The Longhorns are expecting over 100 recruits to flood their campus for the spring game, which kicks off at 1 p.m. Included in that list are at least 20 signees/commitments, potentially the nation's top 2016 recruit, a 2017 prospect, and a bevy of out-of-state talent. Here's our list of expected visitors

Of Texas' 23 signees in 2014 (three are already enrolled), at least 15 are expected to attend today's game.

They are QB Jerrod Heard, RB Duke Catalon, RB D'Onta Foreman, WR Roderick Bernard, WR Armanti Foreman, WR Garrett Gray, WR Lorenzo Joe, WR Dorian Leonard, OL Terrell Cuney, OL Elijah Rodriguez, DE Jake McMillon, DE Derick Roberson, DT Poona Ford, LB Edwin Freeman, S John Bonney.

Five of Texas' 2015 commitments should be on campus, too, in RB Jordan Stevenson, OL Patrick Vahe, OT Ronnie Major, OT Toby Weathersby, and RB Tristian Houston, who committed this week.

One of the day's biggest visitors will be 2016 OT Greg Little (Allen, Texas/Allen), who could potentially be the top player in his class in the country. The Longhorns have some work to do for Little, who already holds offers from some of the top programs in the country. Not to mention his quarterback at Allen, Kyler Murray, is expected to sign with Texas A&M where his father played.

But Little does have Texas ties in a roundabout way with his father having played football with defensive line coach Chris Rumph at South Carolina.

Another visitor to really keep a close eye on is four-star receiver Carlos Strickland (Dallas/Skyline), who will be meeting the staff for the first time in person. He currently doesn't hold a Texas offer despite being the No. 10 WR in the country. But that could change Saturday.

Other potential 2015 offer candidates include TCU DE commitment Breylin Mitchell (Round Rock, Texas), S P.J. Locke (Beaumont, Texas/Central), Baylor DE commitment Louis Brown (Burton, Texas), and K Drew Galitz (Rowlett, Texas).

A few possible 2016 offers are WR Devin Duvernay (Sachse, Texas), University Lab (Patterson, La.) teammates Malik Antoine (DB) and Florida DB commitment Tre Jackson, TE Marquise Guinn (Carthage, Texas) and DT Darius Anderson (Missouri City, Texas/Hightower).

It's a shortlist of players that could pull the trigger on a commitment. That list includes four-star WR Ryan Newsome (Aledo, Texas), DT Kingsley Keke (Richmond, Texas/George Ranch), and CB Keivon Ramsey (Converse, Texas/Judson).

Also noticeable on this list are the efforts this coaching staff has placed on out-of-state prospects. In addition to Antoine and Jackson, the non-Texas prospects include tight end C.J. O'Grady (Fayetteville, Ark.), LSU running back commitment Nicholas Brossette (Baton Rouge, La./University Lab), three-star linebacker Bo Wallace (River Ridge, La./John Curtis), and 2016 wide receiver Mykel Jones (Patterson, La.).

The Longhorns will even host a 2017 prospect in Frisco (Texas) center Jack Anderson. Read about him in The Heard
