Texas Football Recruiting: Longhorns Leader For Keaontay Ingram, In Mix For 4-Star Defensive Linemen And More

With spring practice over for the Texas Longhorns, recruiting takes center stage for Tom Herman and his coaching staff. Texas is off to a strong start early, ranking 19th in the nation with six commits. But Texas is far from done and there's plenty of action around Texas football recruiting. Here are all the latest Texas recruiting news and rumors you need to know.

Texas Leading For 4-Star RB
Texas badly wants to land the top RB in the state of Texas, Keaontay Ingram. And it appears the Longhorns are in the process of doing just that, as Ingram told 247Sports that Texas is his current front-runner. LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and a few others are also still in the mix. 

Listed at 6-foot-1, 187 pounds, Ingram is the No. 10 running back in the nation and No. 26 prospect in the state. The four-star recruit is the No. 223 overall player in the nation. Texas is a bit thin at RB right now and getting Ingram would be a big pickup.

Longhorns In Mix For Two 4-Star DL
The Longhorns are trying to add more defensive line talent, and they remain in the mix for a pair of four-star defensive linemen in Tyreke Smith and Bobby Brown. 247Sports reports Texas is in the top 4 for Brown, along with LSU, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. The 247Sports crystal ball is split between OU and Texas. Brown hails from Arlington, Texas and is the No. 152 overall player and 18th-best in the state. 

As for Smith, he revealed on Twitter that Texas is in his top 12. 

Smith is from Ohio and is the No. 5 player in the state. He's a Top 150 player in the country. Ohio State and Penn State are the favorites on the 247Sports crystal ball, so Texas will have a tougher time getting Smith than it could getting Brown. 

Another QB To Visit
Texas already has two QB recruits, but four-star Tanner McKee will also visit the Longhorns this weekend per 247Sports. McKee is a top 75 recruit in the nation and the No. 9 recruit from California. However, McKee also plans on going on a two-year mission trip, so immediate playing time isn't a major issue for him. Essentially, he'd be a 2020 recruit. Stanford is the current front-runner, with BYU making a strong push as well.
