Despite a lot of chatter about a plethora of prospects, the Texas Longhorns haven't received a commitment in the 2013 class since ATH Chevoski Collins (Livingston) pledged in October. That may change this weekend.
According to multiple reports, 2013 OG Rami Hammad (Irving) will take an official visit to Austin this weekend. He's expected to be in town with S Erik Huhn (Cibolo Steele), a committed prospect. Huhn was unable to visit during Banquet Weekend, the time typically reserved for official visits from committed players.
Hammad is currently committed to the Baylor Bears, but speculation is rampant that Hammad either has an offer or will receive an offer during the visit, at which point he will commit. Per Hookem247, Hammad had repeatedly said that he wouldn't visit Texas until he received an offer.
Hammad committed to Baylor in November, but had seen interest spike after a strong showing at the Semper Fi All-American game in December. At the event, Hammad picked up Offensive Line MVP honors as well as a few national offers ($).
He had scheduled official visits to the Oklahoma Sooners this weekend, as well as the TCU Horned Frogs next weekend. This morning, Hammad confirmed that he canceled the trip to Oklahoma in favor of an official visit to Texas ($).
The Longhorns have been active in their recruitment of one or two more offensive linemen in the class. Texas is waiting on news from JUCO OL Desmond Harrison (Contra Costa (Cal.) C.C.), who is considered more of a tackle. It appears likely that Texas would take one more guard regardless of Harrison's decision, especially after junior guard Thomas Ashcraft decided to leave the program and not return for his senior year.
