Texas A&M Aggies tight end Blake Smith out of Southlake Carroll is a smart guy.
Last week, Smith took to social media to endorse recent Texas Longhorns prospects who have opted to commit to the Forty Acres. He’s since deleted the tweet, but it still happened.

As you’ll notice, Smith reacted to quarterback Quinn Ewers Longhorn commitment.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND
- What does Jalen Milroe’s decommitment from Texas means for the Longhorns? That’s the question posed by Sports Illustrated. From SI: “While the loss of depth at quarterback position will hurt, this isn’t the end of the world for Texas. A much more important ripple effect might have been the second decommitment from offensive tackle Hayden Connor. Connor, who is good friends with Milroe at Katy Tompkins High School, committed to Texas last August. The four-star lineman confirmed he will stay in an Instagram post Monday night. It is unclear at the moment if offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich will continue to search for another quarterback in the immediate future. Going forward, it looks like it’s going to be a battle between junior Casey Thompson and freshmen Hudson Card and Ja’Quinden Jackson.”
