Finally, after what seems like an eternity, good recruiting news! Despite maintaining for the last several weeks (ever since returning from Norman) that he didn't have a trip planned to Austin, Franklin changed his mind and will visit with the Longhorn coaching staff Thursday evening. Only weeks away from his decision, and with OU holding a slight lead because of a higher comfort level, things didn't look good for the Longhorns being able to make up that extra ground. Until now. With Will Muschamp and Mack Brown getting a final chance to raise Franklin's comfort level with the program and pitch Longhorn football, the odds of landing Franklin increase, perhaps not substantially, but significantly. This is right in Mack's wheelhouse and Muschamp's intensity and vision for the defense only helps.
