An old name is back on the recruiting radar for the Texas Longhorns, as Oklahoma Sooners cornerback commit Parrish Cobb will take an official visit to Austin this weekend, according to multiple reports.

Orangebloods confirmed the news from ESPN on Thursday.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops will have an opportunity to try to dissuade Cobb from taking that trip during an in-home visit on Thursday evening.

A 5'11, 176-pounder from Waco La Vega who is considered a consensus four-star prospect, Cobb picked up his Texas offer in early April while on an unofficial visit and made his way down I-35 to Austin for the Under the Lights camp in July, as well. However, he opted to commit to the Sooners in early August.

Other than an unofficial visit to hometown Baylor back in the middle of November, it doesn't appear that Cobb has been active taking any other visits, at least according to his 247Sports profile. Oddly enough, that includes Norman as well -- there's no evidence he's taken his official to Oklahoma yet on 247Sports or Rivals. Nor does he have an apparent plans to do so.

One factor to watch in his recruitment is what happens with his cousin Eric Cuffee, the Waco product who is still expected to pledge to Texas at some point. Would a commitment from Cuffee take Cobb's spot in the class? Likewise with Obi Eboh. His official visit to Stanford didn't produce a commitment, but if he sticks, would that impact Cobb?

Right now, there are so many moving parts with so many targets left on the board that making sense of the numbers at this point is virtually impossible.

Regardless, the visit news did spark the first 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction yet for Texas:

Cobb is ranked as the No. 303 prospect nationally, the No. 30 cornerback,  and the No. 46 player in the state of Texas. He currently holds more than 15 offers.
