Tracking all of the recent developments along the recruiting trail.

Everyone also seems to know something about the program and what's apparently about to happen. Malik Jefferson. Du'Vonta Lampkin. Charles Omenihu.

Add defensive line coach Chris Rumph's wife to the list:

All these similar tweets aren't just for no reason, right?

Just before Texas head coach Charlie Strong was set to arrive at Gladewater to meet with the explosive defensive tackle on Tuesday afternoon, Mack sent out the following image in classic Kyler Murray style -- nothing but the image:

What's the latest on Mack?

Also, the visit was reportedly a massive success:

Here are some pictures of that visit:

The last chance for the Noles to hold onto Locksley will happen on Wednesday:

Head coach Jimbo Fisher and co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Randy Sanders have some significant pressure on them to get the visit right and convince Locksley why he should head to Tallahassee for college, as the pitch from the Horns hit home last weekend from all accounts.

Convincing Locksley that the Florida State offense is going to be a better fit could be a difficult task. Perhaps even close to impossible. The industry is starting to come to that consensus, too:

Besides seeing Mack on Tuesday, head coach Charlie Strong went by Mesquite to see wide receiver commit DeAndre McNeal. They probably spent some time in the same kitchen in which McNeal told Jefferson he was going to Texas and Jefferson made up his mind, setting off a wild celebration between the two.

The mood probably wasn't as celebratory this week, but that's not going to matter. Here's the tweet McNeal sent out on Wednesday:

Strong will be by Rockwall for an in-home visit on Wednesday with four-star running back Chris Warren, one of the numerous prospects who will announce on National Signing Day. The big back has an important trip out to Washington this weekend that could have a significant impact on his recruitment given the family ties there.

While in the area, he'll also stop by to see Rockwall-Heath safety DeShon Elliott.

While in the Metroplex, Strong will head over to Plano to check in on another running back, five-star prospect Soso Jamabo.

Of course, Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is also taking in-home visits of his own. Mack and Gilmer cornerback Kris Boyd will both host Sumlin on Wednesday. Texas will be in Gilmer to see Boyd on Thursday and will also be in Houston for a last impression on Houston Lamar cornerback Holton Hill.

Another development to track in the Kyler Murray sweepstakes is the apparent re-entrance of Oregon -- the Ducks have an in-home visit with Murray on Wednesday and are looking to land an official visit from him this weekend. After Marcus Mariota jumped to the draft, the depth chart opened up, although four-star dual-threat quarterback Travis Waller enrolled early in Eugene.
