Recruiting: Spring Game Attendee Rhett Bomar

The state's top QB tripped to A-town and caught Saturday's Spring Game. an event that drew a record crowd of 35,000 Orangebloods.

Having attended a couple of Longhorn summer camps before, there wasn't anything on the Forty Acres Rhett Bomar had not seen, save for the infamous Bubble. Basically, though, the 6-4, 200-pound athlete had another opportunity to check out one of his early leaders, and so he did.

"Coach Davis took us around so I got the chance to talk to him a little more and also talked with Coach Brown again," the Grand Prairie prep said.

Claiming offers from the Big 12 as well as FSU, UCLA, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Syracuse and LSU, Bomar said Miami has made a commitment to see him in the spring and should also jump into the fold.

So how will he decide which school has the tools for him to go to work?

IT's top-ranked QB places a premium on academics as well the ability to get along with his future coaches. Adding that the prestige of winning a NC is a prerequisite for schools looking to garner that ever-elusive verbal.

When asked about recent reports indicating Oklahoma has led and/or still does, Bomar said, "That's not true at all. I've been open throughout the process."

That said, word has arguably the nation's top signal caller with a top two of Texas and Oklahoma. Bomar refused to distance himself from that claim. As a matter of fact, when asked if that was true, he said: "You could say that."

But he also said that someone else could creep into the picture. At this point, however, no one else has.

With Texas extending only two scholarship offers to junior QB prospects (aside from a previous offer to USC commit John David Booty) -- one to Stephen McGee, the other to Bomar -- the standout from north Texas said he felt very good about being one of Texas' two targets. And it definitely has made an impression on him.

As for what his commitment timeframe might be, the future 5-star bluechipper said it could be as early as a couple of weeks.
