The In-State Longhorns Offer Dores Commit

Ranchview (Tx) DE Dayo Odeyingbo picked up an offer today from the Texas Longhorns but does that mean he is wavering on his commitment to Vanderbilt?

Odeyingbo could be on the verge of seeing his recruitment take an upward swing after receiving an offer from the Texas Longhorns on Saturday. Committed to Vanderbilt since this summer, Odeyingbo has all the tools you want in a college defensive lineman and will only get better in college. 


The Texas offer is a big one to achieve, especially growing up in the Lone Star State. For Odeyingbo, the Longhorns offer is a good one to have but not one that will turn him away from being a Commodore.

"I feel blessed to get the offer from Texas but it won't do anything to get me off my commitment to Vanderbilt, he said. "I'm excited about the direction the program is going and I can't wait to be a Commodore."

Dayo is the younger brother of current Commodores defensive lineman Dare Odeyingbo. The elder Odeyingbo is currently finishing off his true sophomore season where he helped the Commodores defense rank among the best in the Southeastern Conference.

The Odeyingbo family is getting prepared for the holiday's but don't have any big plans as they will spending Christmas in the great state of Louisiana. 

"Me and my family are going to the bowl game to see the team play but also see Dare as well," Dayo said. "It will be great to have the family together but also see my brother and his team compete in their bowl game."  www.scout.com/player/201512-dayo-odeyingbo

Odeyingbo will be in Nashville on January 20th for his official visit with Vanderbilt. He is rated as a 3-star prospect by Scout and the 34th overall athlete in the country.
