Trey Graham loves Austin visit

The Texas Longhorns had 16 official visitors on campus this weekend at the annual football banquet. Trey Graham, one of two tight ends in the class, certainly wished he was still playing in the playoffs, so the official visit provided a great opportunity to put his bitter playoff loss behind him. The 6-5, 235-pound blocker and pass catcher says everything about the weekend was great.

The Texas Longhorn big official visit weekend of the year always centers on the football banquet. This weekend was no different as 16 official visitors made their way to Austin. Since all were already committed, the class got a chance to hang out together.

Trey Graham of Waco Midway was one of the Longhorn commits on hand for the weekend. Graham has been committed to the University of Texas since March 4. Graham said that he had a great visit.

"The visit went well," said Graham. "It was the first time I got to see the new North End zone. It was really nice over there. We ate dinner Saturday night in the club suites," said Graham.

Graham made the short trip from Waco for his official visit with his mom and dad.

The #34 rated tight end prospect in the 2009 class was hosted by fellow tight ends Blaine Irby and Peter Ullman. Both tight ends explained to Graham what to expect when he gets to campus both on and off the field.

In addition, Graham got some one on one time with Head Coach Mack Brown.

"I met with Coach Brown. We just talked about what the future of Texas football had in store. There are lots of good things in the future," said Graham.

Graham will have to wait until June to start making more history of his own as a Longhorn, but he is already helping out the recruiting cause with his Waco Midway teammate, safety Ahmad Dixon.

"I am working on Dixon to join me in Austin," added Graham.

Graham didn't enjoy as productive of a season catching the ball as he had hoped, but made big strides as a blocker. For his all-around efforts, the future Longhorn was awarded 16-4A first team all-district honors for a second straight year.
