The Texas Longhorns missed on Elkins outside linebacker Kenneth Murray on Wednesday morning as the Missouri City product committed to Oklahoma in a ceremony at his high school.

Along with Texas, Texas A&M was also in the mix, but Oklahoma jumped into pole position following a July 29 visit and have now added their eighth 2017 commit out of the Lone Star State; doubling 2016’s total of four commits from Texas.
Bob Stoopes is putting together a magnificent class at Oklahoma and now has 18 total commit, which is already just shy of the Sooners’ 2016 total of 21.
For Texas, on the other hand, it’s likely the pursuit of four-star Kimball athlete Devodrick Johnson begins to heat up. Following his visit to Texas August 5, Johnson decommitted from Texas A&M, crediting the Chalk Talk women’s clinic incident as his reason for needing to reevaluate his recruitment. Johnson doesn’t yet hold a Texas offer, but that may soon be changing with Murray off the board.
