To reiterate, we here at CFT dabble in the world of recruiting only from time to time, but seeing as the following nugget involves one of the more highly-touted high school athletes in the country — not to mention it’s late June — we’ll make an exception.
Earlier this month, Sealy high school (TX) receiver Ricky Seals-Jones made a few waves when he announced he was decommitting from Texas. But the surprise wasn’t that Seals-Jones wavered on the Longhorns — decommits happen all the time — it was that the four-star receiver did so just days after attending a UT mini-camp and showed zero signs of dissatisfaction with Mack Brown and company.
Seals-Jones has since opened up his recruitment and recently took a trip to Texas A&M. Speaking to Geoff Ketchum of Orangebloods.com, though, Seals-Jones admitted the possibility of going back to the Longhorns is more favorable than not.
Ricky Seals-Jones lists odds of recommitting to Texas at 75%. Full video report from #rivalschallenge coming soon.

Seals-Jones has already measured in at 6-foot-5, 230 pounds and ran a 4.4 40-yard dash at the aforementioned Texas mini-camp, so it’s easy to see why so many programs would be interested in him. Tough to blame the kid for testing the waters a little longer.
