On Monday, the Texas Longhorns lost a running back commitment from Arlington Martin Running Back Kyle Hicks. Hicks decided to decommit from the Texas Longhorns and go with the hometown TCU Horned Frogs and stay closer to home. Devonte Fields, a current TCU player and high school teammate, had been talking to Kyle Hicks about going to TCU and it worked.
When you lose a commitment this late in the recruiting process, it’s tough to find another player that isn’t already committed. The top prospects already have their favorite schools and have taken their visits and will wait until signing day to make their decision. This one hurts more because this is an in state prospect that committed to Texas early and after the season decides to switch his commitment. TCU ended their season by beating Texas and was one holding call and one tipped pass after from almost beating Oklahoma. The Horned Frogs are selling a positive outlook in the Big 12. Texas on the other hand lost it’s last two games and right now it’s a very negative outlook on this Texas Longhorns football program.
