Just days ago, four-star Houston Madison cornerback Bobby Wolfe reopened his recruitment, backing out of his Feb. 4 pledge to Texas A&M.
On Saturday, Wolfe released a new top 10, and the Texas Longhorns aren’t in the mix at this time.
Wolfe’s top 10 consists of Texas A&M, LSU, Georgia, Colorado, Mississippi State, Florida, Ole Miss, Louisville, Oklahoma and Oregon.

Although Wolfe won’t be donning burnt orange a year from now, there is good news in the fact that Texas is still heavily involved with other elite cornerback prospects.
Five-star Baton Rouge (La.) Dunham School product Derek Stingley is still high on the ‘Horns, and is currently in the process of planning an official visit to Texas, per 247Sports’ EJ Holland. Texas is a favorite for fellow five-star cornerback Chris Steele out of Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, and Steele plans to take an unofficial visit to Austin this spring before returning later in the year for an official tour ahead of his Sept. 27 commitment date. Texas is also considered a frontrunner for four-star Houston Dekaney prospect Marcus Banks, who recently visited for Junior Day and named the ‘Horns in his top group.
Erick Young, Marquez Beason, Jalen Catelon and Chester Kimbrough are among the other high-level cornerback prospects with mutual interest in the Longhorns, as well.
In short, although Wolfe won’t be a Longhorn, Texas is still very much in the mix with some of the nation’s top defensive back talent and can potentially string together another loaded haul at cornerback.
Thus far, Texas’ three-man 2019 class is ranked No. 21 nationally, but is without a defensive back pledge.
