Texas Football Recruiting: Ricky Seals-Jones Wisely Considers Recommitting

Ricky Seals-Jones is arguably the best wide receiver in the 2013 recruiting class. His ridiculous combination of size, speed, skill and potential are simply off the charts.

At 6'5", 220 pounds, and not even playing wide receiver this past season or next season, the sky is the limit for the Sealy, Texas superstar. Sealy moved their star player to quarterback simply because they wanted the ball in his hands more, but that hasn't stopped colleges from recruiting him to play wide receiver. Teams are enamored with his combination of size and raw physical talent and it makes him a unique prospect out wide at the collegiate level.

RS-J, an ESPN 5-star recruit, was committed to Texas but backed out a little over two weeks ago.

The belief was that the 2013 recruit was eying the possibility to play both football and basketball at the next level, at least according to William Wilkerson of ESPN.

Wilkerson also said that LSU, Texas A&M and Baylor were likely willing to let him play both. It remains to be seen, however, if Texas would bend on that.

While RS-J's athletic ability is undeniable, we also cannot downplay the fact that a basketball career would hinder his football career.

A recommit to Texas would mean he's serious about playing football and, according to Geoff Ketchum, he's highly considering it:

RS-J would be the crowning jewel of Mack Brown's recruiting class this year, a class that includes the potential next Vince Young in Tyrone Swoopes.

The class also has two other ESPN 4-star receivers and they believe they could be one of those units that can make a run at a title if they're all together.

Texas is easily the best fit for RS-J and his talents. As good of a hoops player as he may be, he's just another big, athletic guy on the hardwood. But on the gridiron, that combination of size, speed and playmaking ability is unmatched.

There is no denying which sport is the better choice and should he recommit to Texas, it would be the best move.
