John Theus Narrows List, 'Horns Make Cut

Jacksonville Bolles (FL) offensive tackle John Theus trimmed his list Tuesday ($), narrowing his focus to six schools: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, and Texas. While it's certainly positive news that the 'Horns are still alive in hopes of getting an official visit in the fall from Theus, with his older brother at Georgia and location deep in SEC country, the Longhorns not only would have to survive another cut to get an official, but would have to absolutely blow the five-star prospect away on the visit -- his relationship with Searels alone isn't going to be enough.

Additionally, unless Theus takes his official on the weekend of the football banquet -- which would be highly unusual for an uncommitted prospect -- he won't have a chance to interact with many of the commits. In fact, if Theus has a relationship with any of the Texas commits/prospects it would be a surprise and the successful recruitments of guys like Tim Cole, Malcom Brown, and Johnathan Gray, just to name a few, have been primarily built on the bond between the players themselves and a comfort level around each other.

More thoughts on the offensive line situation in the coming days.
