Former UCLA OG commit Will Farrar on commitment watch after Thursday tweet

The Longhorns are now the perceived leader for the former Bruins commit.

The 2017 offensive line class for the Texas Longhorns could receive another boost in the near future after Fort Bend Travis offensive guard Will Farrar sent out a Thursday morning tweet with a picture from his April visit:

The 6'5, 290-pounder picked up his offer from the 'Horns at the end of February, then committed to the UCLA Bruins while on a trip to Westwood several days later. However, the pledge didn't stick for long, as Farrar decided to re-open his recruitment a little more than a month later after another journey out to the West Coast.

In the immediate aftermath of that decision, Farrar visited Texas, Texas A&M, and LSU over the course of four days.

And he may now be in commitment watch, as a cascade of 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions came in for the Longhorns in the moments after Farrar's Thursday morning tweet -- four in total -- to give Texas a commanding lead of 71 percent.

A high three-star prospect, Farrar is the No. 351 player overall, the No. 13 offensive guard, and the No. 50 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Close to 30 schools have offered, including Arizona State, LSU, Miami, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, Washington, and West Virginia, among many others.

If Farrar does end his recruitment for a second time, he would join DeSoto offensive guard Xavier Newman in the 2017 offensive line class and would probably end the pursuit of interior linemen for position coach Matt Mattox in the current cycle.
