Davis talks about his commitment

May, 7, 2012

CB Antwuan Davis (Bastrop, Texas/Bastrop) talks with HornsNation's William Wilkerson about his decision to commit to the Longhorns.
It’s been a pretty good week for four-star athlete Chevoski Collins (Livingston, Texas/Livingston).

Oklahoma offered him a few days ago and then today Texas did too.

“I was down in the coaches’ office and Coach [Mack] Brown called,” Collins said. “He just told me that I had been offered by Texas. It is real exciting and a very good accomplishment to know that someone like Texas wants you to come play for them.”

Chat wrap: DB debate, football improves

May, 2, 2012
HornsNation's William Wilkerson stopped by SportsNation to chat about the NFL draft, Texas football and of course some recruiting updates.

Here are some of the highlights:

Spence (Dallas)

How soon do you see Davis committing? Are our chances with Wilson good since we are in final two (Oregon and Texas)? Been too long since a committ. I am going crazy... I hate offseason.

William Wilkerson

Been a little slow on the recruiting front, eh? I know he is tied up with track right now; qualified for the state meet. So i definitely don't see it happening before that is over. I do, however, presume he'll make his decision before next season starts. I think Texas' chances are decent with Wilson simply because of the proximity to home. I think he'd already be committed to Oregon if it weren't so far away. He took an extended trip out there weeks ago to make sure he could handle it. But a few days is much different than a few years. That being said, I know he doesn't like the idea of being a "DJ Monroe" guy for Texas. He wants to be an every-down back, and there might not be room at Texas for that.

Nicholas (CC,Tx)

Long shot here, if Gray comes right out of the gates and out performs Berg and Brown without question, or vice versus, do you see us nominating an exclusive back in our future or are we sticking with the plan of watering down our stars?

William Wilkerson

No. I think this offense will continue with the three-back set regardless of if another RB begins to shine. Now, if that back completely dominates, eh, surely he'll get more carries. But all three are so explosive in their own rights I just find it hard to believe that Harsin-Applewhite wouldn't find ways to get them involved.

David (Mansfield, Ohio)

After the latest DB update it mentioned that Texas may be the leader for M. Harris, what are the chances that we land him out of those offered thus far? And if we do not gain a commit from V. Bell who will they offer next, Miles or Baltimore? And after being in the lead for Davis and Smith, how does Texas stand with them now?

William Wilkerson

I have always thought Texas' chances with Harris were better than average, and I think they'll get no worse than that. I'd put Texas up there with Florida as the teams to beat. I'll lean toward Miles. I think GB ends up in the SEC. Smith likes Alabama a whole lot right now. I think Texas is in some trouble. Not so much with Smith.

Stephen (Seattle, WA)

What do you think will be the biggest difference from last years success to this years?

William Wilkerson

First and foremost just the comfort level the players and coaches have with each other. Always difficult for a new coaching staff to come in. Second, I think Texas simply has better players on this roster than last.

Chat wrap: Texas and the ESPN 150

April, 18, 2012
William Wilkerson stopped by SportsNation to chat about the release of the ESPN 150 and Texas recruiting.

If you didn't get your question answered, send them in to us in the HornsNation mailbag or you can always hit us up in the forum.

Here is some of the best from the chat:

David (Mansfield Ohio)

It’s hard to say whether or not Smith really has Bama as his top school over his "dream school" Texas, or if he is just making Texas sweat it out after waiting so long to offer. After this happening what are the chances that Texas offers in-state safeties Baltimore and/or Miles in case they miss on both Bell and Harris? Also how serious of a shot does Texas have at Nkemdiche since he wants to visit and knows Searels? Or is this replay of QB Winston from last year?

William Wilkerson

The Smith situation is hard to read. I think Texas waited a little too long to offer him, but they had their reasons for waiting. The allure of A-Day (Bama's spring game) may linger for a while but I think he will ultimately decide with his "dream school." As for offering Baltimore and/or Miles. Balt's mom wants him to go to Texas. She loved the Longhorns. But there hasn't been much communication between the two sides and I'm not sure how kindly he is going to take to being a "fall back" plan in case the national guys don't commit. Same with Harris. As for Kin-dee-chee, he wants to visit. But I don't think much would come from it.
