Texas Recruiting 2013: Chevoski Collins Offered By Texas

Days after members of the Texas coaching staff stopped by Livingston to check out athlete Chevoski Collins, the coaches have extended only the third offer to an in-state defensive back by offering Collins, according to multiple reports on Thursday afternoon.

Many schools are recruiting the 5-11, 185-pounder to play wide receiver in college, but the Longhorns have viewed Collins as a defensive back throughout the process. He plays multiple positions for Livingston, including quarterback, wide receiver, safety, and cornerback and was recently offered by Oklahoma. The versatile prospect also holds offers from Baylor, New Mexico State, TCU, Texas Tech, Utah, and Vanderbilt.

Recruitniks may recall that Collins had told several services following the second Junior Day that he had received an offer after encouragement from Mack Brown (extended to all the prospects in attendance) to simply go ahead and tell the services whatever they wanted about their offer status. Well, Collins can now say that he has an offer with honesty.

The offer out to Collins could be an indication that the staff doesn't feel strongly about their positioning of the 'Horns with Maurice Smith, who has seen his recruitment go through the roof this spring after being a relative unknown as recently as January.

In terms of numbers at the position, the odds are high that if Texas receives two commitments -- from Bastrop cornerback Antwuan Davis and Collins, for instance -- Duane Akina could shut down recruiting in the defensive secondary unless there is more attrition this spring or in the fall.
