Will Texas land more commitments during its second junior day?
Texas just had a successful junior day, extending double-digit offers and gaining multiple commitments soon after. But already, the Longhorns are gearing up for another one this coming weekend. Wescott Eberts of SB Nation's excellent Texas site, Burnt Orange Nation, has compiled a great list of junior day attendees. Here are just a few:
-JT Barrett, Wichita Falls Rider QB -- Somewhat surprisingly, there's some buzz that Texas could take another quarterback in the class, even after the commitment from Whitewright QB Tyrone Swoopes, but that likely wouldn't happen for Barrett unless another player leaves at the position following the spring. Still, it says quite a bit about Barrett that he's still willing to come in, despite the tiny likelihood of an offer.
-Cody Thomas, Colleyville Heritage QB -- There hasn't been an update from Thomas since Swoopes committed and he could miss the event due to baseball obligations, anyway. It would be a surprise to see him make it into Austin this weekend.
-Eldridge Massington, West Mesquite WR -- With reported 10.6 100m speed and standing at 6-3, Massington may have the best size/speed combination at wide receiver in the state in a deep class. If Dallas Skyline WR Ra'Shaad Samples fails to make a move on his Texas offer this week, the 'Horns could end up offering Massington.
-Ellis Jefferson, Denton Guyer WR -- One of a horde of tall receivers in the state this year, Jefferson is highly unlikely to receive an offer on his visit.
-Jeremiah Gaines, Red Oak H-back -- Perhaps the top H-back on the Texas board, the Longhorns need to add two prospects at TE/H-back in this class, but may still be evaluating the position.
