The nation's No. 15 running back was active on Twitter while in Austin and offered the following summation of his visit:
Another offering provided an indication of his comfort level in Austin:
Feeling like home in ATX! ✨— Nicholas Brossette (@NBrossette) January 17, 2015
The entire Brossette family made the journey from Baton Rouge on Friday to see the Texas campus. The powerful and explosive running back was greeted with a welcome package when he arrived:
ATX we here!!! I'm so pumped!!! Lol ✨ pic.twitter.com/UuWWPmttfF— Nicholas Brossette (@NBrossette) January 16, 2015
On Saturday, Brossette and other official visitors watched the Longhorns demolish the Mountaineers at the Erwin Center in front of a larger than normal crowd.
Brossette has been pledged to LSU since 2013, but visited Austin last summer and has seriously considered Texas since then.
Next weekend, the 6'0, 207-pounder will take what could be a decisive official visit to see the home-town Tigers. Based on what Brossette said during his visit, the Tigers may have to make a strong impression on the consensus four-star prospect and his family to maintain his commitment because it seems as if the official visit to Austin put the Longhorns into serious contention.
With the two recent decommitments and possibility of Davante Davis following Tim Irvin to Auburn, there's suddenly more space available in the 2015 Texas recruiting class -- there could be room to take two of the three remaining running back targets, a list that also includes Chris Warren and Soso Jamabo, the latter of whom has a planned official visit to Austin next weekend.
