Recruits at the Kansas Game

For its last home game of the season, the Horns hosted some of the state's top prospects, including a couple of surprise visitors.

Houston Madison QB Vincent Young, the top QB prospect in the state and one of the best in the nation, attended as expected, as did Baton Rouge Christian Life LB Rufus Alexander, Winston-Salem (NC) Mt. Tabor LB A.J. Nicholson, Midland Lee TE Eric Winston, and Lindale LB/DE Michael Williams.

Even better news may come from the surprise visits by a couple of LBs, one an uncommitted state top 10 prospect and the other a recently wavering UT commit. Longview's Marvin Byrdsong took in UT's 59-zip thrashing of the Jayhawks, and Garnet Smith, who told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram earlier this week that he was back solidly in the Longhorn commitment camp, took in the game from the east stands of DKR as well (wearing a Burnt Orange UT shirt). Local stud Paul Mosley, the outstanding athlete from Austin Anderson, and Taylor DB Michael Cuba also watched the KU dismantling, as did current Texas commits Earl Anderson, Marcus Myers and Dustin Miksch.

Another interesting attendee: Klein Forest WR Anthony Wright, a prospect who has slipped a bit in the recruiting rankings but who at one time was at the top of the state's wide receiver lists and a Longhorn lean.

Larry Dibbles also reportedly attended although IT did not spot him among the other prospects.
