Texas' top tight end prospect, Zack Pianalto, has decommitted from Texas and will follow Butch Davis to North Carolina. This marks the second out of state recruit in this year's class to decommit from Texas.
The Springdale, Arkansas tight end was considered an elite tight end prospect by the Texas coaches, and Mack Brown was reportedly very disappointed that Pianalto won't be coming to Texas.
Unlike the Brantley decommitment, which many folks saw coming days and weeks in advance, the Pianalto decision has caught everyone by surprise.
Not much else to this story, really. Kid's a big fan of Butch Davis, and changed his mind after Davis got the UNC gig.
It does make you wonder, though, whether Mack will rethink his "early commitment" strategy, as well as his desire to recruit out of state kids much, at all.
