Class of 2012 defensive end Javonte Magee (San Antonio/Sam Houston) has been extremely quiet with his recruitment this season. And that's exactly how it will remain until his high school career comes to a close.

William Wilkerson/ESPN.com Javonte Magee will wait until after his season ends to start focusing on recruiting.
Magee, a four-star recruit and the No. 18 defensive end in 2012, has been solely focused on his season, which will continue Friday when the Hurricanes (8-2) face Devine (10-0) in the first round of the Class 3A Division I playoffs. Once the season is done, he will sift through several dozen offers to determine where he will take his official visits. Texas is among his offers, but he's not considering specific schools at the moment. Magee told HornsNation that he would like to remain close to home so his mother, Mary Griffin, can watch him play. Magee said Texas Tech and Illinois were the most recent programs to stop by his school.

Edwards still interested in Texas

A source close to Denton (Texas) Ryan defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. said that the nation's top prospect in the Class of 2012 was still planning to make an official visit to Texas, despite being committed to Florida State. The source said that Edwards was unable to make his planned official visit to Texas on Oct. 15 because of a scheduling issue.
