Texas picks up an elite athlete in Ricky Seals-Jones.
Ricky Seals-Jones, a top tight end recruit from Sealy (Tx.) High School, has committed to the Texas Longhorns. Seals-Jones holds additional offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Alabama, among others. At 6'5" and 220 pounds, Jones is way too much for the competition to handle at the high school level.
And like many elite athletes in high school, Sealy uses Seals-Jones at the quarterback position. There simply isn't much film available of him playing tight end or receiver. But the athleticism is immediately evident. Seals-Jones is definitely one of the top 20 players I've seen on film at this early juncture in the 2013 cycle, and given his frame and likely college position, he might just be scratching the surface of his potential. With as much motion and formation shifting as Texas likes to employ in its offense, Seals-Jones could cause quite a few headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the coming years.
It's also interesting to note the recruiting done by Texas commitment Jake Raulerson (see photo). Texas is again putting together great class.
