Cobbs visit seals commitment ($)


After committing to Texas a little more than a week ago, all DeMarco Cobbs had to do was finally make it down to Austin to speak with Mack Brown and confirm his intentions to sign with the Longhorns. While that sounds pretty simple, given his history of being unable to make it down to Central Texas, it was hardly a given that Cobbs would come through this time. Fortunately for Texas fans excited about seeing the playmaker in burnt orange, Cobbs did make it into town. After leaving Tulsa late Friday night after his final regular season game, Cobbs and a friend stayed in Dallas overnight and left for Austin. Following the Texas victory over UCF, Cobbs sat down with Brown, telling him that he does not plan to keep in contact with any teams. Barring any unexpected developments, then, Cobbs will officially become a Longhorn in February.

DeMarco Cobbs Switches From One UT to the Other ($)


In a strange turn of events, Tulsa Central wide receiver DeMarco Cobbs, an early target for the Longhorns who repeatedly failed to make it to campus, switched his commitment to the Longhorns on Thursday evening. Early in the process, Cobbs indicated that Texas was his first choice, but lost contact with the coaching staff as four other receivers committed to the Longhorns and Texas appeared in good shape with Darius White, who has since lost interest. At his high school, Cobbs does pretty much everything for his team, playing some quarterback, wide receiver, defense, and excelling on special teams -- at Texas he will almost certainly play wide receiver, where he will probably be a bit raw and doesn't have great explosiveness, but he's a strong, fast kid some have compared to Michael Crabtree. Great pick up for the Longhorns, but this development probably eliminates any chance of Darius White coming to Texas. Oh well. Further thoughts later.

Cobbs: USC now at No. 1 ($)


Tulsa Central wide receiver DeMarco Cobbs has family connections to California, having been born there and an aunt who is a judge, a position that increases in importance in his life since he wants to major in criminal justice. The playmaker had been waiting for an offer from USC, which was recently extended. After taking the family considerations, along with the obvious athletic ones, into his decision-making process, Cobbs says USC is now his favorite.
