A longtime high-priority target for the Texas Longhorns is close to deciding after moving back his decision date.

Per 247Sports, consensus four-star Waco Connally defensive back Kobe Black originally intended to make his college commitment on November 29th.

In late November, Black pushed back his decision and set a new commitment date.

Black has been at the top of the big board for Steve Sarkisian and his staff for some time now and the Longhorns have long been thought to be in the catbird seat to earn his commitment come decision time. Back in August, Black announced his top five programs and it consisted of LSU, Ohio State, Oregon, Texas, and Texas A&M.

Texas A&M has tried to get their foot in the door in this recruitment with Black after hosting him late in the summer for an unofficial visit. The Aggies had Black on the docket to visit officially in early October, but ultimately that visit was canceled and Black made his way to watch Texas play Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl that same weekend.

Black has several ties to Texas, as he already has two former teammates in Austin in Jelani McDonald and Tre Wisner and he is also tight with Texas commit Colin Simmons. Austin being just a quick trip down the road definitely doesn’t hurt the sales pitch, as the Longhorn staff is certainly pushing to keep him home.

We will not have to wait much longer to see what Black’s college destination will be with all four 247Sports Crystal Ball projections and all five On3 RPM predictions favoring Texas as of Tuesday afternoon.
