Texas also hosted Jackson's Duncanville teammate Tommy Devereaux. Devereaux, who is being recruited by the Horns as a wide receiver and corner, has yet to register a qualifying test score (he is scheduled to take the test this coming weekend) and, according to Devereaux, the UT coaches are withholding a scholarship offer until he earns that qualifying score.
Also in the stands for the A&M stompin' were Kalen Thornton's younger brothers Kyle Thornton and Kenton Thornton. Kyle, a senior offensive lineman at St. Marks in Dallas, could be a victim of UT's limited scholarship numbers for this recruiting class (Jorrie Adams and Ofa Mohetau are two of the Horns' top remaining priorities at OL). Kenton is a standout junior wideout.
Another junior standout from the Dallas area -- Lendy Holmes of South Oak Cliff -- attended the game. Holmes is a versatile athlete who will be a top prospect in next year's recruiting race. He played some quarterback as a sophomore and wide receiver and free safety as a junior. Dave Campbell's Texas Football listed Holmes, who also plays basketball and runs track, at 6-2, 189, 4.4.
WR Dwayne Bloodsaw of Aldine Nimitz rounds out the recruits that IT spotted at the Horns' regular season finale. Texas Football listed Bloodsaw, who earned first-team all-district honors at wideout as a junior, at 6-4, 215, 4.6.
