The Texas Longhorns have mostly avoided any commits taking visits in recent weeks, but that ended over the weekend when Rockwall-Heath safety DeShon Elliott took the short trip over to Fort Worth to see the TCU Horned Frogs:
Stewart is a wide receiver from Mesquite Horn who has been committed to TCU since last January. It appears that Arlington Bowie athlete Tony James was also on the visit based on a retweet from Elliott. James has been pledged to the Horned Frogs since late November of 2013.
After the visit, Elliott sent out the following tweets from his protect Twitter account @DeShonElliott_4:
Is there any reason for concern? The fact that Elliott made the trip with his friends and didn't have to travel far suggests that is was more about having some fun with them than a serious, business visit.
However, it is obviously something worth following moving forward, especially because Elliott is a key commit in the secondary and has taken at least one other visit in recent weeks.
There were reports that he was headed to Oklahoma for an official visit in early November, but he never ended up making the trip. He did, however, take an unofficial visit to Texas A&M in November, increasing speculation at that time that he might switch his commitment, an even bigger worry because the Aggies have two Rockwall-Heath players on their roster and another committed in the 2015 class in offensive lineman Trevor Elbert.
Those concerns have died down a bit, but will likely remain in some form until Signing Day.
Elliott is a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 14 safety in the country and the No. 33 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
