Scout only lists 2 guys with offers from Texas for 2010. I'm guessing they must do offers at a junior day or something or wait until camps. I forget what they did last year.

5 :star 6.1 on Rivals now:

DE Jackson Jeffcoat Ht: 6-4 Wt: 233 40: 4.6 Plano (West), TX :star :star :star :star :star/:star :star :star :star :star 6.1/ESPN150 Watch List

 

ESPN:

Jeffcoat sports the same jersey number as 2009 defensive end Devon Kennard, but that is not why he reminds us some of him. Like Kennard, Jeffcoat is the son of a former NFL player and combines ability with a heady style of play to be very productive. Jeffcoat's father Jim was a fine NFL defensive end and is now a college coach and you can see by watching the younger Jeffcoat that he has grown up around the game and learned a thing or two from his dad. He possesses good size and looks on film to have a nice wing span and the frame to add more bulk as he matures. He has a good get-off and plays with good pad level coming out of his stance. He does a good job of shooting his hands and creating and maintaining separation. He can keep his "power angles" (ankles, knees, hips) bent and hold his ground. He can also engage and stretch a play laterally. More.

The top prospect in the 2010 class Jackson Jeffcoat (Plano, Texas/West) will visit the University of Houston on December 19. The 6-foot-4, 233-pound defensive end has already taken three official visits. He visited Arizona State November 6, Texas November 20 and USC November 27. The five-star prospect also plans to officially visit Oklahoma and Florida in January.

 

Texas and USC are thought to be the top two. His father, Jim Jeffcoat, is the defensive line coach at the University of Houston.

The No. 1 ranked prospect in the ESPNU 150, Jackson Jeffcoat (Plano, Texas/West), will not be making his previously-schedule official visit to Florida this weekend, all but ending the Gators' chances of landing the five-star recruit. However, he is still scheduled to make his Jan. 22 visit to Oklahoma.

 

The 6-foot-4, 233-pounder has already made official visits to Arizona State (Nov. 6), Texas (Nov. 20) and USC (Nov. 27). Jeffcoat has also made an unofficial visit to Houston in December, where his father coaches the defensive line.

 

Texas and USC have been thought to be the favorites for several weeks, but the Trojans are now on the outside looking in due to the losses of head coach Pete Carroll and linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. Both will fill their same roles in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks. As important as Carroll was in the recruiting process, losing Norton Jr. was a crushing blow for the Trojans because he and Jeffcoat's dad, Jim, are good friends dating back to their playing days with the Dallas Cowboys from 1988-1993.

 

Now, the Longhorns are thought to be the leader over Houston for the nation's top prospect heading into the Oklahoma visit, where Jeffcoat's twin sister Jacqueline signed to play college basketball Nov. 11.

Edit: Need to credit my source, Tim Giffin in his Big 12 blog.

 

Who said the upcoming weekend was going to be "a dead week" in terms of football excitement?

 

Standout defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat of Plano West (Texas) High School is planning to single-handedly boost some life back into Sunday night television ratings in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He'll make a live announcement Sunday on his college commitment on KDFW-TV, the Fox affiliate.

 

Jeffcoat is the No. 2 recruit nationally on the ESPNU 150 list. He also is the highest-ranked player on the list who has not announced his commitment.

 

What makes this so intriguing are the cast of finalists still in the hunt for Jeffcoat, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound speed-rushing defensive end.

 

Texas and Oklahoma are believed to be the two favorites. Mack Brown spent most of a day at Jeffcoat's school before visiting with Jeffcoat's family that night last week. But he didn't come away with a commitment as Jeffcoat visited Oklahoma over the weekend on his final official visit. Jeffcoat was joined in a group that included top Texas A&M linebacker recruit Corey Nelson of Dallas Skyline.

 

Some have speculated that the Sooners may have an inside track to attracting Jeffcoat because his twin sister Jacqueline committed to Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale to play basketball for the Lady Sooners in the fall.

 

Others have said that Jackson might end up at Houston, where his father, former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Jim Jeffcoat, is a member of Kevin Sumlin's coaching staff.

 

The other finalist is Arizona State, where his father played college football. Jackson Jeffcoat has already dropped USC and Florida from his list of six schools which remained at the start of December.

 

It's one of those classic recruiting battles between Texas and Oklahoma. The fact that he could join his dad at Houston or go back to Arizona State only makes it more intriguing.

 

Which way will he go?

 

We'll find out next Sunday night.
