Messing with Texas and LSU's reach; recruiting news

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

As National Signing Day fast approaches February 5th, schools and recruits know time is of the essence and we have seen several changes.  Texas, having named Charlie Strong its new head coach, lost two key recruits this week.  We discuss these with KTBS 3 Sports recruiting expert Barton Simmons of 247 Sports and Comcast CSS "In The Huddle" program.  Simmons tells us the two recruits who decommitted from Texas, one, Zaycoven Henderson of Longview, has already enrolled at Texas A&M. The other, Trey Lealaimatafao of San Antonio is considering both Oregon and LSU.

Simmons does talk about Strong rounding out his staff at Texas and how he is looking to differ from Mack Brown when it comes to recruiting as he has added some very impressive coaches.

Simmons also talks about two high school teammates from Mississippi who have committed to Ole Miss, but are about to take an official visit to LSU.  One, talented defensive end Breeland Speaks, is a player the Tigers believe they can flip.  The other, just named a 5-star offensive lineman, Roderick Taylor, may not be so easy.

These final weeks leading up to Signing Day promise to be unpredictable.
