Stephon Taylor: There is a lot of concern about the defensive tackle position and with Ridgeway leaving it becomes that much more important to bring in some potential instant impact DTs. One of the guys that doesn’t get talked about much is Stephon Taylor (New Orleans, LA). Taylor has already (unofficially) visited Texas and has a strong relationship with coach Haley.

I came across some excellent news for the Longhorn faithful yesterday. I spoke to a source close to Taylor last night and was told that Taylor will take an official visit to Texas in January. He also has a trip planned to South Carolina. I was also told in no uncertain terms that Texas is his current leader. – (Super K)

Devwah Whaley: Devwah Whaley made it known to media members that he will announce his decision this coming weekend and will decide between Texas, Arkansas and Georgia. Whaley is close to PJ Locke but he also has a good relationship with current Texas commit, Davion Curtis. Below is an interview with Whaley conducted by Jason Suchomel of Rivals.com.

Deontay Anderson: Also, star 2016 safety Deontay Anderson will be taking an official visit to Texas in January. Below is another interview conducted by Jason Suchomel of Rivals.com where Anderson discusses his top 3 schools: Texas, LSU and Ole Miss. We’ve been told for quite some time that Anderson is headed to Ole Miss. In fact, we had been told that he and Greg Little plan on being roommates. However, based on the interview, Anderson makes it sound like Texas is still in the thick of things.
