The Longhorns are still trying to wrap up the final pieces of their 2013 class but coaches have also turned their attention toward 2014.
On Monday, Texas defensive ends coach Bo Davis stopped by to visit sophomore inside linebacker Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty County).
The 6-foot-2, 232-pound prospect is one of the top players at his position in the country and already holds offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss and South Carolina.
Davis assured McMillan that the Longhorns would add to that list in February when they’ll begin to offer 2014 prospects.
“Coach Bo Davis came by my school and told me they liked me and liked how physical I was for being so young,” McMillan said. “They said they wanted me to get down for a camp.”
McMillan said he plans on camping at Texas this summer. He also said he’d like to visit camps at Georgia, Alabama and Ohio State.
“I want to visit [Texas],” he said. “I actually used to live in the Fort Worth-Dallas area so I like Texas fans.”
McMillan said he lived in DFW for about two years when he was really young.
“I am just someone that gets noticed by teams from across the nation and I’m not favoring anyone right now,” he said. “I am keeping my options open. But if Texas takes a lot of interest in me I will take a lot of interest in them.”
McMillan is already a physical specimen and coaches rave about his physicality at the line of scrimmage.
“When I see the ball I track it very well and get in and out of the line of scrimmage,” he said. “I shoot the gaps real well.”
Those abilities have grabbed the attention of schools from across the country. In addition to Texas and the schools that have offered, McMillan said Florida State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Georgia, Florida, Miami and Clemson have all stopped by to visit.
“It’s a blessing to have all of the colleges coming to see you but you have to not get overwhelmed by it,” he said. “I am a sophomore so I have to keep myself occupied until my senior year when it gets real hectic.”
