The Horns now appear to be the favorite for Keaontay Ingram’s younger brother.

Roughly 36 hours after the Arkansas Razorbacks fired head coach Chad Morris less than two years after Morris took over in Fayetteville, Carthage athlete Kelvontay Dixon became the latest recruit to decommit from the Razorbacks.

The news is particularly notable because Dixon is the younger brother of Texas sophomore running back Keaontay Ingram. And not only that, but Dixon was also trending to the Longhorns in the 247Sports Crystal Ball projections over the last several weeks as the Razorbacks floundered and head coach Tom Herman’s staff seemingly picked up its contact with Dixon.

A 6’0, 180-pounder, Dixon originally committed to Arkansas on the Fourth of July after taking an official visit in early April. He took multiple visits to Austin prior to making his decision, including his attendance at the Junior Day back in February.

With Texas losing two cornerback commits in the last several weeks, the positional versatility of Dixon would make him an appealing addition to the class.

Ranked as a consensus three-star prospect, Dixon is the No. 249 player nationally and the No. 10 athlete, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
