Former Oklahoma Sooners commit Du'Vonta Lampkin, a defensive tackle from Houston (Texas) Cy Falls, released a new top three on Monday evening via Twitter:

He told SB Nation Recruiting that the list is not in order.

The 6'3, 291-pounder had been committed to Oklahoma since November of 2013, but ended his pledge to the Sooners in late April because he spoke with his family and decided that he should take some more visits.

The list does back up the assertion made by Lampkin at the time of his decommitment that the Sooners are still in the mix for his services. It is, however, relatively rare for a prospect to decommit from a school only to recommit later.

The Longhorns entered the recruitment of the consensus four-star prospect rated as the No. 21 defensive tackle nationally less than two weeks before he decided to reopen his recruitment and have been trending in the 247Sports Crystal Ball with two recent projections coming in for the Horns.

There's also one for Texas A&M recently from the Aggie 247Sports insider, so it's possible that head coach Kevin Sumlin and his staff are close to extending an offer to Lampkin that could seriously alter his recruitment.

The standout from the Dallas NFTC in 2013 and Houston NFTC in 2014 has seen his recruitment take off this spring -- he's added offers from LSU, Michigan, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas during that time. He also has an offer from Baylor.
