There was a surprise visitor on hand for the Texas Longhorns hard-fought battle against West Virginia this weekend. Among the many visitors in town was four-star Spring Dekaney cornerback Marcus Banks, who made a trip to Austin to soak in the atmosphere at the Forty Acres and converse with the coaching staff.
“It went good, all the coaches were telling me how much we they missed me since it’s been a while,” Banks told BON. “I hung out with Coach Washington a lot after the game and was actually the last recruit to leave. I stayed up there a while and talked to Coach Herman.”
Banks, who recently decided to decommit from LSU several weeks back is in the process of searching for the best landing spot for himself. He took an official visit to Alabama in late September and has already scheduled his next official to Florida in early December.
As of right now, Banks is still considering the Longhorns after reopening his recruiting process. He still remains in contact with Texas and speaks with defensive backs coach Jason Washington pretty consistently. Something could be possibly brewing.
“You could say my interest has grown after the visit,” Banks said.
Adding another cornerback to Texas’ current recruiting class would provide more depth to a deep up and coming secondary. The Longhorns hold two commitments at the position from four-star Grayson (Loganville, Ga.) cornerback Kenyatta Watson II and three-star Alvin cornerback Marques Caldwell.
Banks has made multiple visits to UT and is considering the Longhorns as one of his final schools to use an official visit on.
At 6-foot, 170 pounds, Banks is ranked as the nation’s No. 266 prospect, and as the No. 33 player in the state, per the 247Sports Composite.
