Texas was recruiting House, who has seen his stock explode over the summer and was thought to favor the Longhorns. This comes on the heels of losing top recruit Marcus Smart earlier in the week to Okie State. Just a brutal, brutal time for basketball recruiting for the Horns. Barnes is really struggling lately with in-state recruits as he seems to be focusing more and more on OOS prospects.
Needless to say, I'm not overly optimistic about the Harrisons, Matt Jones, Julius Randle, or Keith Frazier for the class of 2013, as they are all national recruits who are being recruited by the very top programs in the country. We will see, though.
