The Texas Longhorns are set to have a huge month of visits in September. 

Chris Beard and staff are in the process of setting up visits for all five of the top targets on the board. 

With four-star combo guard Arterio Morris (iSchool Academy) already in the fold, building out the class is now the task. 

Inside Texas takes a look at the five most wanted, as it currently stands.

  1. Cason Wallace, CG, Richardson (Texas) 

On3 100 ranking: No. 8 

The five-star guard climber to the top of the Longhorns board the first two weekends of the live evaluation period. Texas has an official visit set for September 3-5. The Longhorns are working from behind with Kentucky and Tennessee considered the favorites since June.

2. Yohan Traore, PF, Paris (France) Prolific Prep

On3 100 ranking: No. 13

The 6-foot-10 skilled four-man can go the pro route, or play a year or two in college. Should college be the decision, Texas is in line for an official visit. Traore was on campus unofficially in June, and was impressed with the Texas program. Tennessee, Texas Tech, Oregon, and others are on the list for potential visits this fall. 

3. Jordan Walsh, SF, Dallas (Texas) Southern California Academy

On3 100 ranking: No. 23

Walsh shot up the charts for a number of colleges in July. The 6-foot-7 long-armed wing has big time athleticism and a motor to match. Texas is in line for an official visit, most likely September 16-18. Kansas, Oregon, Arkansas and Oklahoma are also in line for visit. 

4. Isaac Traudt, PF, Grand Island (Neb.)

On3 100 ranking: No. 30

Traudt is likely to make an official visit this fall. Gonzaga offered late in the week, and is also in line for a visit. Michigan State and Virginia have been considered the favorites in recent weeks. 

5. Rowan Brumbaugh, PG, Washington (D.C.) Northfield Mount Hermon

On3 100 ranking: No. 57 

Brumbaugh released a final six of Maryland, Kansas, Texas, Oregon, Northwestern and Miami. The Longhorns are working to get the 6-foot-3.5 point guard on campus September 16-18. Texas has a strong relationship with Chris Beard in its favor. Maryland has close to home, and playing style. Kansas is Kansas, and also plays fast to Brumbaugh’s liking. 

The Longhorns are also recruiting On3 100 No. 37 Brandan Hausen (Amarillo High), No. 58 Terrance Arceneaux (Beaumont United), among others.
