Four-star DT Du'Vonta Lampkin names the Texas Longhorns as his leader

Du'Vonta Lampkin at the Houston NFTC in 2014 - Wescott Eberts (SB Nation)

The Cy Falls defensive tackle just released his top five.

Last week's visit to Austin was enough for Cy Falls defensive tackle Du'Vonta Lampkin to launch the Texas Longhorns to the top of his list when he released his top five schools on Monday:

Remarkably enough, the Sooners clearly remain in the mix, a rarity for schools from which a prospect decommits, as the consensus four-star prospect did from Oklahoma in April. LSU isn't considered a team heavily in the mix despite the school's reputation and the Tigers would likely have to make up a lot of ground.

The final two schools on the 6'3, 291-pounder's list aren't considered strong contenders, either -- one visit to each isn't likely to earn his eventual commitment.

The fact that Lampkin plans on taking official visits to the top five schools on his list suggests that he plans on extending his recruitment through the fall, so the short-term implications for Texas in being named the leader are not especially significant since he's not on commitment watch.

However, it is an extremely positive development since defensive tackle is a position of need and the other uncommitted in-state options don't seem especially high on the Horns and two key targets in Gladewater's Daylon Mack and George Ranch's Kingsley Keke have already pledged to Texas A&M.

The 247Sports Crystal Ball has reflected the belief that Texas leads for Lampkin for some time and Monday's list from the Houston-area defensive tackle backed up the industry consensus.
