Bobby Tatum Talks Banquet, Lake Highlands Duo

Inside Texas caught up with <B>Bobby Tatum</B>, the state's No. 11-ranked prospect and arguably its most physical DB, to talk about his visit to Austin for UT&#146;s Football Banquet Weekend. Kid had a blast, loves Texas, and only has four more days of high school. We grabbed some of his words about the time he had and some news about the potential commitment status of the Lake Highland Duo of <B>Franklin Okam</B> and <B>Jeremy Campbell</B>.

"Ahh...man, I loved it," Tatum said. "I know this is where I'm supposed to be. Everybody kicked it together Friday and Saturday night, it was real tight. It's really true about feeling like you're one big family here. I got along with everybody."

Tatum said Brian Carter, Jonathan Scott and Cedric Griffin hosted him on his visit.

"Saturday night," he continued, "I was chillin' a lot with Vasher. Even Roy Williams came later to hang out with all of us. It was fun."

Tatum also said that while the verbals and uncommitted prospects we're kickin' it Saturday night, the parents headed to Mack and Sally Brown’s house for dessert.

The 6-0, 190-pounder said he can't wait to get to Austin again and that he hadn’t looked anywhere else "since April".

So how 'bout the two kids from Lake Highlands?

"Jeremy Campbell told me last night that he was probably going to commit," Tatum said. "So, I think that's the dude that could commit of the two. And Franklin didn't commit yesterday. I think that's when he talked to Coach Brown. But I know he really liked it and I think he'll probably commit to Texas in the end. His mom really, really, liked it."

Asked if he thought Okam maybe wanted to take another visit or two before pulling the commitment trigger, Tatum said, "Yeah, probably."

More to come as we talk to the other prospects that visited the Forty Acres this weekend. Stay tuned…
