The Longhorns got some disappointing news from the nation’s No. 1 safety.

After South Grand Prairie safety Jeffrey Okudah’s latest cuts, only six programs remain with an opportunity to land the nation’s No. 1 safety and the Texas Longhorns aren’t among them.

The widely perceived Ohio State lean was on the Forty Acres for Texas’ Junior Day and has been in contact with Charlie Strong and defensive backs coach Clay Jennings, but that likely now comes to an end.

Considering what Okudah is looking for in his college destination, the Longhorns have some familiarity with each of the South Grand Prairie product’s desires. What are those desires? 247Sports ($) talked with Okudah to find out.

“Defensive back development, a chance to play early, a chance to play for a national championship and plans set up for me after football,” Okudah said.

By all accounts, Texas fit the bill with the majority of what Okudah seeks, but the national championship aspirations may have been what placed the Longhorns on the outside looking in.

The nation’s No. 5 overall prospect plans on making his decision in the fall and enrolling early.
