Texas Football: Future Longhorns to Watch in the Opening
Matt Strasen/Associated Press
Dynamic slot receiver and Longhorn lean Ryan Newsome is set to put on a show at The Opening.

Patrick Vahe has dropped out of The Opening, leaving the Longhorns without a commit in attendance. However, there are three expected commits that are worth monitoring at Nike's prestigious event.

Receivers Ryan Newsome and John Burt join defensive back Holton Hill as the only attendees that are considered Texas leans at this stage of the process. Both Newsome's and Hill's Crystal Ball predictions peg them as future Longhorns, while Burt recently told 247Sports.com's Luke Stampini (subscription required) that Texas leads the pack.

There are 162 recruits attending this event, and not a one is committed to Texas. Even if all three of these guys eventually commit, that's still not an impressive number.

As always, a lot can change by signing day. But for now, these are the only three participants that fans should get excited about.
