Massington says it's not too late for Texas, but they've gotta repair relationship. He felt "disrespected" by not getting offered at JD2.

“@C_Morgan2013: At least there's a lot of UT guys getting drafted.”. Someone sounds bitter
Yeah Vaccaro, didn't mean he was a first rounder right now but I expect him to play really well next season. If Jeffcoat plays like he did in the Holiday bowl and leaves early, I could see him going in the top two rounds as well.
Okafur, Jeffcoat and Hicks are all prime candidates that could leave early and be drafted very early.
Okafor will be a senior, so he's leaving no matter what. He's also rated as the #1 DE in the 2013 draft right now.
Keenan Robinson was just taken in the fourth round by the Redskins. First Longhorn.
Emmanuel Acho to Browns (ugh) in the 6th

Per @Sean_Callahan, Nebraska running back Aaron Green is transferring. Was MaxPreps' third-ranked RB and a five-star in 2011. Looking at Baylor, OU, Tech, TCU, Hou.
A nice honor for LB Deoundrei Davis as he's been invited to the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge later on this summer. Quotes from him along with his film:
"I have always expected great things for myself," he said. "It didn't bother me that it took as long as it did because I knew what my abilities were."
"I knew I would get noticed. I knew it would happen."
"It is great that people think highly enough of me to invite me out to the event," he said. "Now it is time to show them that they made the right decision."
"It is a team thing and we all want to win," he said. "But it is an individual event, too. You are in coverage and you have your man and the eyes are on you."
"I am always going to be hungry," he said. "I wasn't given anything and didn't have a bunch of hype. I had to work hard to earn everything I have now. I wouldn't allow myself to give up or slow down in anything. Now that I have the chance to prove myself I want to go out there and be the best. I don't think all those other guys are going to be as hungry as me."
"I have respect for them all (the other competitors), but I am hungry and aggressive and people will see that."
"I am confident in myself and always have been," he said. "I really think that if I keep going the sky is the limit."
Recent quote from DB Maurice Smith:
"Everyone is on the same level. I'll probably wait to make my decision at the Under Armour game."
He also says he's been talking with Duane Akina on a weekly basis and hears a lot from OL/DL Jake Raulerson, ATH Jacorey Warrick and CB Antwuan Davis. He's a bit tough to figure out because he still lists Texas as his "dream school" but keeps pushing his decision date back. I think he still feels a little slighted because UT waited so long to offer so hopefully that will fade in time. Getting Davis to commit soon and attending the summer camp in Austin with all of the other commitments could help things quite a bit. It's tough for Texas that more and more schools keep entering the picture.
FYI that UT is supposed to be at West Mesquite HS today to see WR Eldridge Massington. USC is scheduled to be by on Tuesday. It could be a blessing in disguise if the Trojans offer in the near future and Massington gets his commitment out of the way (rumors out there that he's been recruiting for USC) allowing Texas to focus elsewhere. The time is now to offer if the Longhorns really want a shot at him.
Quotes from RB Dontre Wilson (24/7). Wilson says he won't be speaking with any coaches until after the state track meet comes to an end (May 12th-13th). UT still has their visits to DeSoto for the spring eval period.
“My decision is basically that I'd have committed to Oregon already if it wasn't so far away,” Wilson said. “That's my big issue with Oregon. I want my parents to be able to come see me play. In the end you're trying to make it to the league, so you do what you have to do.”
“They've been telling me that I'd be in the same role as D.J. Monroe,” Wilson said. “But D.J. Monroe never gets the ball. They say that's going to change if they get me, so we'll see.”
Quotes from DE Torrodney Prevot who is going to be playing in the 2013 US Army All-American Bowl:
“Right now, things are level,” Prevot said Friday. “Schools have been coming by for our practices. TCU is coming by soon to watch practice. Tennessee is my most recent offer, but other schools have come by and are coming by that may offer.”
“I think we are going out to Florida this summer for the Miami (Fla.) and FSU camps. That’s in June. I’m not sure about any others yet,” he said.
“Texas A&M is sitting pretty high right now, but I’ve been researching more lately and I see they are getting more stacked," he said. "They have like five DE’s already, and one committed this year, but they are still pretty high with me. Texas is doing good with me. They don’t have as many DE’s right now because guys are leaving after this year, but they signed a few. I think Texas A&M is recruiting me harder than Texas right now.”
“LSU coaches have done a good job," he said. "Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, and there are others. I’m developing a lot of good relationships.”
“I don’t have a list right now, but I’m getting closer to making a list," he said. "I’m thinking about committing after I take a few official visits.”
“I know I want to visit Oregon. I know I want to visit Texas and LSU too. I don’t know who the others will be,” he said.
“My uncle and my mom will be big in helping me make a decision," he said. "My uncle is handling all the business aspects, since I want to major in business management. He talks to the academic advisors and is seeing what program fits me the best. He’s helping me a lot. I really don’t know what a deciding factor will be right now though.”
Quotes from WR Robbie Rhodes (24/7):
“Recruiting has been going well for me,” said Rhodes. “We’ve had quite a few coaches visit recently. Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU, Houston, Texas and some others I can’t remember have all stopped by over the past week or two weeks. It’s just been so hectic with track and everything, that it’s hard to keep up with it all really. But recruiting has picked up big time for sure.”
“Coach (Darrell) Wyatt has been the one in contact with me from Texas,” Rhodes said.
“They’ve (Texas) actually talked about offering,” Rhodes told Hookem.com. “I think I’d probably have to visit first before that happens, but it’s been discussed. Like I said, everything has just been so hectic that it’s been hard to keep up with it all. But I feel like I’d get one if I let them know I was serious, which I am.”
“He stopped by and watched me for a while. Texas has really begun to show a lot more interest in me and has been talking to me a lot lately. I’m going to try to visit here soon when I’m in Austin for track. I want to check them out.”
“Right now I’m sort of leaning toward Baylor to be honest,” explained Rhodes. “They’re my favorite at the moment and the school I’m considering the most. There are others there, of course, like Texas, but as of right now the Bears are the school I’m leaning the most to.”
More from WR Eldridge Massington (24/7):
“My coaches waited until after the track meet to tell me they're (Texas) coming on Monday,” Massington said. “They're going to watch me go through track practice and we're also going to run a few routes.”
“They'd have some work to do if they offered,” Massington said. “The main thing I'd want to know is why. Why wait until now to possibly offer me? That's what I'd really want to know.”
“I had gotten a few letters and things and they invited me to the spring game but that was about it,” Massington said. “I hadn't talked to the coaches or anything like that until this last week.”
"It's almost like I have to take two steps back with all of the schools coming at me,” Massington said. “There are supposed to be some more schools stopping by to see me soon, so it's about to get even crazier.”
24/7 reporting that the UT staff did not make it out to Trinity Valley CC last week to check on DT Quincy Russell. No reason was given but it's worth mentioning since that DT spot is up for grabs right now. Texas is supposed to go by SA Madison this week to see DT Vince Taylor.
Quotes from CB Antwuan Davis who is headed to the state track meet after winning his region in the 100m with a 10.49 (24/7):
“I know Coach Akina does a great job of sending DBs to the NFL,” Davis said. “Even more than that, he's a go-get-it coach. He's always getting after it when he's coaching and I like that about him. He's always trying to get the most out of his players.”
“I hope there are a lot of Texas fans there (at the state track meet),” Davis said. “Hopefully there's a lot of support for me and hopefully I can put on a show.”
“I felt like I was on my way to a really good season when I got hurt,” Davis said. “I want it so bad right now.”
