The first of the three major high school all-star games kicks off on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. CT in Orlando on on ESPN2 and multiple Texas Longhorns targets will participate in the game.
Two key recruits, Beaumont Central running back Devwah Whaley and North Mesquite offensive tackle Jean Delance are both expected to be among the five recruits who make their respective commitments during the game. Stay tuned for more information in the morning about the commitment schedule.
Whaley is down to Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas, with Miami attempting to make a late move with the hire of head coach Mark Richt, who secured a commitment from Whaley when he was at Georgia. Regardless of his decision, he's expected to host an in-home visit from new Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart and take an official visit to Austin in January, so his recruitment won't be over with his decision.
As for Delance, he hasn't yet taken an official visit to Texas yet and could do so in January. The Longhorns seem to be the leader after the Aggies fell out of the race for his services, but the Wolverines are a serious competitor after making an impression during his December official visit.
And though it's hard to take much from all-star games, there are multiple other players who are worth watching in the game who remain uncommitted and solidly on the Texas recruiting radar -- Silsbee offensive tackle Patrick Hudson, Alief Elsik linebacker Dontavious Jackson, Aldine Davis linebacker Jeffrey McCulloch, Waco cornerback Eric Cuffee, Manvel safety Deontay Anderson, and Nacogdoches safety Brandon Jones.
