The recruitment of Javelin Guidry could come full circle after his recent scholarship offer on Tuesday.

Guidry, who played his first three years of H.S ball in the state of Texas before moving to California in the off-season, landed an offer from the Texas Longhorns. Guidry is very family with the Horns staff as he was committed to Houston when UT head coach Tom Herman was running the show for the Cougs.

"Coach Washington is the coach recruiting me and he was also the DB coach at Houston," Guidry told us Tuesday night. "He'll be coming over next Wednesday for a home visit and I'm very comfortable with him already so it's a good situation.

"I haven't set up an official visit yet but it will likely be January 20th. I have Utah this weekend so we'll see if we can get something set for next week. Arizona State is pushing for an official visit too but there's a chance I could just make my decision after visiting Utah and Texas."

Guidry was one of the top defensive backs we saw this past season. He doesn't just have speed, he has elite speed and it translates well to the football field. He was the state 100m champion in Texas a year ago and could run in the 10.3-100m this year.

He was a two-way standout this past season, showing tremendous explosiveness with the ball in his hands. There's no doubt he could play receiver in college but we do like his upside highest as a cover corner.
