The Texas Longhorns have reportedly suffered another decommitment, but this time on the offensive side of the ball.
Per Alex Markham of Rivals, three-star West Mesquite running back Ty Jordan has flipped his commitment to Utah from Texas.

This decommitment comes on the heels of Jordan taking an official visit to Utah in late November. With Texas coming off a disappointing season and currently hunting for an offensive coordinator, it made them ripe for the picking in this situation.
Losing Jordan stings because he brings a different dynamic to running back group already on campus and with NSD1 rapidly approaching it may be tough to find a replacement that duplicates his skill set.
With the continued uncertainty on both sides of the ball, it will not me surprise if other programs continue to use the vacant coaching staff positions against the Longhorns on the recruiting trail.
A consensus three-star prospect, Jordan is ranked as the No. 433 player nationally and the No. 9 all-purpose back, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Texas still holds a commitment from No. 2 running back Bijan Robinson.
