Baltimore waiting and weighing options


MANSFIELD, Texas -- ESPNU Watch List safety George Baltimore (Mansfield, Texas/Mansfield), like every other in-state defensive back with an interest in Texas, is simply having to weigh other options and wait as the Longhorns decide who they’ll offer in 2013.

Baltimore hasn’t spoken to Texas’ coaches since he was unable to make the Longhorns’ second junior day on Feb. 25. But he’s inquired about making his way down to Austin.

“I haven’t talked with Coach [Mack] Brown or Coach [Bruce] Chambers in a second,” he said. “I asked them on Facebook the other day when the next time I could come down was. They should write me back.”

In the meantime, Baltimore (5-foot-11, 195 pounds) is sorting through the offers he’s already been presented from the likes of Baylor, Texas Tech, Michigan State and Vanderbilt.

He said he doesn’t mind going out-of-state as long as it isn’t too far away for his mother to come see him play. He did say Michigan State was out of the picture because of the distance factor.

Baltimore has a feeling he’ll be offered by Arkansas in the next few days and will visit the Razorbacks on April 21.

He’ll visit LSU on March 31. It’s the second time he’ll have seen the Tigers in some form. The first came when he visited Alabama and took in its big showdown with LSU during the regular season.
