Texas Gives Up On Torshiro Davis

Even after an official visit to Texas back in December, LSU commit Torshiro Davis never gave the Longhorns much of a bump up his list, despite rumblings behind the scenes that Davis was giving Texas a closer look than he was letting on publicly.

On Monday, the Longhorns essentially admitted defeat in his recruitment according to multiple reports, cancelling a scheduled in-home visit following the official visit that Davis made to Baton Rouge over the weekend.

The Longhorns had recruited the high school defensive end because of a need for an edge rusher in the class and the relationship that defensive tackle coach Bo Davis had built with the Louisiana prospect during his time at Alabama.

However, that relationship was not strong enough to lure Davis out of his home state, no easy task given the, uh, disposition of Tiger fans, who don't take particularly kindly to in-state prospects leaving Tiger country.
