In a strange turn of events, Tulsa Central wide receiver DeMarco Cobbs, an early target for the Longhorns who repeatedly failed to make it to campus, switched his commitment to the Longhorns on Thursday evening.
Early in the process, Cobbs indicated that Texas was his first choice, but lost contact with the coaching staff as four other receivers committed to the Longhorns and Texas appeared in good shape with Darius White, who has since lost interest.
At his high school, Cobbs does pretty much everything for his team, playing some quarterback, wide receiver, defense, and excelling on special teams -- at Texas he will almost certainly play wide receiver, where he will probably be a bit raw and doesn't have great explosiveness, but he's a strong, fast kid some have compared to Michael Crabtree. Great pick up for the Longhorns, but this development probably eliminates any chance of Darius White coming to Texas. Oh well.
Further thoughts later.
