In a move that was not unexpected, four-star Tallahassee wide receiver John Burt has de-committed from Texas.
Burt, the nation’s 10th-ranked receiver per 247Sports composite rankings, had long been wavering between Texas and Auburn. He committed to the Longhorns on July 27.
Despite losing Burt, Texas’ class holds firm at ninth nationally with 26 commitments. The Longhorns have commitments from two receivers — four-star DeAndre McNeal, and three-star Gilbert Johnson — and are pursuing more. Four-star receiver Ryan Newsome of Aledo will announce his college decision on Jan. 23. Texas is a finalist along with Tennessee and UCLA.
