Texas CB commit Jalen Campbell will evaluate options

Are the Horns still in evaluation mode with the longtime commit?

One of the first commitments in the 2015 class for the Texas Longhorns may not be a member of it for much longer, as Corpus Christi Flour Bluff cornerback Jalen Campbell advised the services in a text message on Thursday evening that he will take other visits and evaluate his options.

The 5'10, 174-pound Campbell said that he's still committed to Texas, but the language of his statement suggests that the coaching staff is still evaluating his spot in the class, as Campbell is coming off of an ACL injury sustained during his school's spring game last year.

Days ago, he told Scout that he was "glad to be a Longhorn."

The consensus three-star prospect is rated at four stars by Rivals, but does not currently hold any other offers. The Rivals camp standout from 2013 received an offer at the first-ever Sophomore Day for the Longhorns last March and pledged one week later.

The primary reason why the staff may be willing to move away from Campbell has less to do with his injury than the fact that his testing numbers weren't particularly impressive when he committed -- he ran a 4.84 40 at the Nike event last spring before his injury, with a 4.25 shuttle and 30.4-inch vertical.

If Campbell can prove that he's recovered fully and has improved his athleticism, there's a chance that the he can remain a member of the class, but right that doesn't look good for the No. 63 player in the state and the No. 46 cornerback nationally. 247Sports has him rated as the No. 101 player in Texas.
