There's a speedy back in the state of Texas on the market again after South Oak Cliff's Jordan Stevenson officially decommitted from the Texas Longhorns on Wednesday afternoon:

The former Dallas Skyline star had talked about taking visits over the months since he committed in October of 2013, but since none of those had ever come to fruition, it had seemed recently as if his pledge was solid.

Based on the Twitter feed of the 5'8, 185-pounder and the outlets now writing about him, Wisconsin may be the destination, though it's not clear whether his decommitment from Texas was a mutual decision or one that he made on his own.

He's ranked as the No. 209 player nationally, the No. 18 running back, and the No. 30 player in the state of Texas and held offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Louisville, Ohio State, SMU, UCLA, and Utah State prior to his pledge.

Since moving to South Oak Cliff, Stevenson had run for 4,500 yards and 49 touchdowns, using the elite speed and elusiveness that made him attractive to the Horns in the first place.

Texas has two other running backs committed in the 2015 class -- Texas legacy Kirk Johnson out of California and Galena Park North Shore's Tristian Houston. Rockwall's Chris Warren is also on the board and may be a Texas lean, while the Horns have also shown recent interest in Plano West's Soso Jamabo, as well as several other backs from around the country.

The 2015 class currently ranks No. 17 nationally and No. 1 in the Big 12, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, and has 19 commits, a number that includes wavering wide receiver John Burt and possible grayshirt candidate Matthew Merrick, the quarterback from Irving Cistercian.
