The subtweet game is strong with young people these days and current members of the Texas Longhorns appear to rank among that group after posting multiple cryptic but suggestive tweets that seemingly reference the planned departure of freshman linebacker Cecil Cherry less than a week into fall camp.
Freshman linebacker Malik Jefferson:
People gotta be made to survive the struggle. #real— Malik Jefferson 4⃣6⃣ (@Official_MalikJ) August 11, 2015
Wouldn't trade anything for the position I'm in now. #grateful pic.twitter.com/EH7wWGq29l— Malik Jefferson 4⃣6⃣ (@Official_MalikJ) August 11, 2015
Jefferson also retweeted classmate Kris Boyd asking Cherry to "Get it together pimp."
Freshman offensive tackle Connor Williams:
There's no place for the weak nor the timid in this bare and desolate land.— Connor Williams (@Connorwi1liams) August 11, 2015
Freshman defensive end Charles Omenihu:
Have a mind of your own..don't let others dictate your decisions.— Charles™‼️ (@charless_94) August 11, 2015
Like I said this ain't for everybody— Charles™‼️ (@charless_94) August 11, 2015
And, for good measure, freshman safety DeShon Elliott:
Only the Strong survive.— Juice Cuatro (@DeShonElliott_4) August 11, 2015
The 2015 Texas recruiting class has gained a reputation as a close-knit group intent on returning the Longhorns to prominence, but they definitely appear to close ranks pretty fast when they feel betrayed or let down.
