CEDAR HILL, Texas -- It’s been over two months since four-star tight end Durham Smythe (Belton, Texas/Belton) gave his verbal pledge to the Longhorns, giving Texas the versatile receiving threat it was looking for in 2013.

While things have slowed down for the 6-foot-5 , 233-pounder, there are still facets of the recruiting process that haven’t changed even though he’s completely locked in on the Longhorns.

“There are several (coaches) that still try to (recruit me) but my coaches are really good about keeping them away,” Smythe said. “If they come by the school they push them toward my teammates. Texas A&M has come by. Stanford came by last week. I’m not looking anywhere else.”
