In a surprising turn of events, Hookem.com, the Texas 247Sports affiliate, is reporting on Wednesday evening that the Longhorns are no longer recruiting 2013 Sealy athlete Ricky Seals-Jones ($), the future collegiate wide receiver who injured his knee last week, but is still considered one of the top prospects in the country.

The report was confirmed through multiple sources roughly an hour later by Orangebloods.

The cousin of former NFL star Eric Dickerson, also a Sealy native, Seals-Jones dislocated his kneecap in a game televised on ESPNU last Thursday, but conventional wisdom held that it would not impact his recruitment. The reports did not specify why Texas has stopped recruiting RSJ.

Seals-Jones said recently that he was planning on taking unofficial visits to Texas, Texas A&M, and LSU, and official visits to Oregon, USC, and unspecified other schools. When those trips will happen is not clear.
