Days after taking an official visit to see the Texas Longhorns, Euless Trinity defensive tackle Chris Daniels announced his decommitment from the Oklahoma Sooners on Wednesday evening via Twitter:

The consensus four-star prospect committed to Oklahoma on December 18, only one day after picking up his offer from Texas. The late effort was enough to get Daniels on campus last weekend, where he was hosted by former high school teammate Patrick Vahe, but there is some other competition for the 6'4, 300-pounder, as he plans on taking official visits to Tennessee this weekend and Texas A&M last weekend.

Tennessee is another school late to the mix, having offered Daniels in early January, so Texas A&M is probably the team to worry about here, as the Aggies were thought to be in a strong position before the Sooners surged following an official visit to Norman in November.

In fact, a prediction for Texas A&M came in to the 247Sports Crystal Ball in the immediate aftermath of the decision from Daniels:

Regardless, this is still excellent news for Texas, which remains in pursuit of a handful of defensive tackles and hope to land several to complement current commit Gerald Wilbon. In fact, all four of the predictions for Daniels to Texas came after his official visit.

Daniels is ranked as the No. 185 player nationally, No. 21 defensive tackle in the country, and the No. 28 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. A total of 30 schools offered him throughout the process.
