Indiana LB Darrin Kirkland Jr has Texas Longhorns in top four

It seems that the official visit went well for the consensus four-star prospect.

One of the big official visitors for the Texas Longhorns this past weekend was Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr.

Following his trip to Austin, he sent out the following tweet on Sunday evening:

The 6'2, 235-pounder didn't have anything else to say about his trip on Twitter, but it seems safe to assume that it went well since the Longhorns are now in his top four schools.

And since he doesn't plan on speaking to the media over the next several weeks until he makes his decision at the US Army All-American Bowl, predicting his eventual destination could be difficult.

Tennessee is currently considered the runaway leader in his 247Sports Crystal Ball at 48%, with Ole Miss trailing at 10%. None of the other three schools currently represented in those projections made his top group.

With linebacker Steve Edmond graduating after this season, the Longhorns are in the market for a middle linebacker and are also pursuing Lakeland (Fla.) Victory Christian's Cecil Cherry, who seems likely to switch his pledge to Texas on Signing Day.

However, Kirkland would represent a bigger get for the Horns because of his more prototypical size and higher ranking.
