2013 Texas quarterback commit Tyrone Swoopes (Whitewright, Texas) has built a relationship with now-former Texas commit Ricky Seals-Jones, but was caught off guard ($) by his friend’s de-commitment on Tuesday evening:
I’m a little surprised. I told him I would respect his decision if he does want to decommit, but it would be good for him if he would stay just because we can do great things at Texas with our recruiting class, and he’s a big part of it.
Swoopes did, however, have some good news for worried Longhorn fans:
He said Texas is still No. 1 but he just wanted to see what other schools had to offer. I told him I respect that.
In all likelihood, there will be more twists and turns in the recruitment of Ricky Seals-Jones, but, for now, it seems that the Longhorns may still be the leader for his services.
