It turns out that Eric Humphrey was just a brief flash across the Texas recruiting radar -- the Dallas Episcopal defensive end/tackle will cross over the Red River and become an Oklahoma Sooner, only days after seriously considering a commitment to Texas Tech.
For the Longhorns, several factors played into Humphrey's eventual decision. First of all, the Longhorns were not quite quick enough to secure an official visit from Humphrey, whose stock blew up around Thanksgiving after the release of his senior film. The other factor was the scholarship situation for Texas, as the numbers got tight after the commitment of Mike Davis. With the transfer of Marcus Davis and the dismissal of Brandon Collins in the last week, it began to look like there might have been enough room for Humphrey. It's also worth pointing out that it was never clear just how interested Humphrey was in Texas.
