My Take: Texas simply isn't going to give up on Jordan Elliott, not this late in the game after all of the work they staff has put in in an effort to garner his commitment. The freshly minted Michigan commitment is giving no indications lately that he is interested in any other program other than the Wolverines. But that didn't stop Brick Haley from going to visit Elliott today, according to sources. The Longhorns are in dire need of interior defensive line help and Elliott has to be considered their top priority in that regard. Now, Michigan defensive coordinator DJ Durkin recently took the head coaching position at Maryland, to which Elliott responded, "This don't change a thing." So, clearly Texas has its work cut out for itself. But that won't stop UT. A major sign of life will be if he ends up visiting the Longhorns later this month or next. If that happens then UT fans can get excited.
