Shorter To Decide Soon

2014 Newton running back Kevin Shorter is coming up on his decision date, and he took one final visit to Texas for Texas Stampede.

With Kevin Shorter set to make his decision in the next week or two, many people felt like Texas had ground to make up. And after Shorter said that he "had a great time" at Saturday's Texas Stampede, the question will be whether Texas was able to do enough.

"They stand really high with the other two schools," Shorter said. "So it's going to be a pretty tough decision I'm going to have to make."

Shorter's final three includes in-state schools Texas and Texas A&M and former SWC rival Arkansas. Shorter said he wasn't currently leaning toward any of the three, and added that he still had to figure that part out.

Shorter said he liked the coaching staffs at both A&M and Arkansas, and he spent a large part of Saturday with Longhorn running backs coach Larry Porter, with Porter instructing him on how he would fit into the Texas system.

"He made a pretty strong presentation," Shorter said. "Just about how I can help the offense."

Shorter said he enjoyed his time with Porter, including at the bowling alley, part of the day's events.

"He's great," Shorter said. "He's a great guy. He doesn't beat around the bush."
