A late offer from the Stanford Cardinal could end up being a game changer for Texas Longhorns cornerback commit Obi Eboh, who has scheduled an official visit to Palo Alto for this weekend, according to multiple reports.

The 6'2, 190-pounder who originally planned on being in Austin this weekend with close friend and high school teammate Lil'Jordan Humphrey will push back his official visit to Texas to the weekend of the 22nd.

The Cardinal extended an offer to Eboh on January 9 to prompt the visit because the school has only one cornerback currently committed in the 2016 class and has missed on numerous other targets. As always, the academics at Stanford represent the biggest threat to Texas in this recruitment, although there's certainly plenty of appeal to living in the Bay Area as well.

Eboh is an important recruit for the Lonhgorns because he has the size and length coveted by head coach Charlie Strong and he is currently the only cornerback commit for Texas in the 2016 class, as well. Losing his pledge could also impact Humphrey's decision, which is currently scheduled to come down on January 30.

Committed to the Longhorns since early September, Eboh is a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 407 prospect overall, the No. 38 cornerback, and the No. 64 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. He also seriously considered Oklahoma before committing and, unfortunately for Texas, there is already a flip prediction to Stanford in the 247Sports Crystal Ball:
