After breaking a long silence, the 2013 Livingston athlete has set an announcement date and declared his finalists.

Among the top uncommitted prospects in the state of Texas for the 2013 class, the recruitment of Livingston athlete Chevoski Collins has been the most mysterious.

Apparently not a fan of interviews or the coverage side of the recruiting process in general, Collins broke his silence this week after taking an official visit to Norman for the Oklahoma-Kansas State game last weekend.

On Thursday, he told ESPN that he has an announcement date set:

The decision is set for 11:15 am CST that day.

The final four isn't that big of a surprise, as those were the schools that have been heavily in the mix for Collins, but the surprising omission is TCU. Why so surprising? Well, Collins told the Oklahoma Rivals affiliate earlier this week that TCU is in his final three ($), along with Oklahoma and Texas.

The guess here is that the decision is essentially between the Sooners and Longhorns based on that discrepancy, which could set up what is becoming a rare head-to-head battle between the two rivals. Since Bob Stoops began to reduce the emphasis on recruiting in the state of Texas in favor of a more national strategy, the Sooners haven't been nearly the threat to the Longhorns in recruiting as they were only a few years ago.

According to multiple reports, Collins may visit Austin for the West Virginia game, which would give Texas the final say in his recruitment. Since he did not attend a summer camp, it's been some time since the likely collegiate defensive back has made it to town.

With Marcell Harris and Cole Luke still on the board and the Longhorns in excellent position with both, there isn't a great need for Collins at this time. In fact, there were times during the summer and early part of the fall when it wasn't clear if he had a committable offer and was still being recruited by Texas.

At this time, it looks like Collins is still in the mix for the 'Horns and could end up wearing burnt orange in college.
