Texas Longhorns Make Other Recruiting Plans With Loss Of Dorial Green-Beckham To Arkansas Or Missouri

The Texas Longhorns were once in the running for Dorial Green-Beckham, the nation's best recruit. However, in recent days, it's reported that the playmaking wide receiver is down to two primary choices: the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Missouri Tigers. Both Bobby Petrino and Gary Pinkel have been after the wideout again and again and DGB is visiting Petrino this weekend. Thus a decision could be coming soon. Since then, the Longhorns have went in another direction.

Daje Johnson is currently a TCU commit, but that could change now that the Longhorns have come calling. ESPN's William Wilkerson wonders if Texas has come calling now that Dorial Green-Beckham has left UT waiting alone. That spells bad news for TCU.

"Texas’ official visit invite to Johnson could mean a few thing," writes Wilkerson. One, that the Longhorns understand that they are not as much of a player in the pursuit of Dorial Green-Beckham as they once were, and want to get a feel for Johnson as another option. It might also mean that Texas simply wants to bring another offensive weapon on board to replace what it lost in the de-commitment of wide receiver Thomas Johnson (Dallas, Texas/Skyline)."
