[Update]: Despite some noise from RS-J on Tuesday night that he might not be ready to make his decision, it appears the announcement will go down at Sealy High School around 1:30 pm CST. All signs point to the Longhorns being the choice. Not sure if any sites are going to livestream the announcement. Use this as your open thread. --Wescott--

With the final minutes of Sunday ticking away, it appears that the Longhorns will break the streak of four consecutive days with a commitment in the 2013 class, but if there is a dry spell in the coming days, it may not last long. Family members of Ricky Seals-Jones, the Sealy wide receiver/tight end, notified the services on Sunday that the 6-5, 220-pound high school football and basketball star will make his college decision public in a ceremony at his high school just after 1 pm CST on Wednesday.

Given the Friday pledge of his friend Tyrone Swoopes, the highly-regarded Whitewright quarterback, and abundant message board rumors that RSJ had in fact notified the Longhorn coaching staff on Saturday evening of his commitment to Texas, the 'Horns appear to be in the pole position in his recruitment, with the LSU Tigers the only serious threat.

Basically, there's no new movement on this one -- if RSJ doesn't end up throwing his horns up with a Texas hat on his head on Wednesday afternoon, it would be an incredibly shocking upset, especially since the word is that his family would prefer him to stay in state and don the burnt orange in college.
