Ricky Seals-Jones has decommitted from Texas.
The 6-foot-5, 215-pound five-star wide receiver from Sealy High in Texas made a non-binding verbal commitment to the Longhorns on Feb. 22. At the time, he seemed set on playing college football in Austin.
Fast forward the clock a few months later and 'RS-J' is putting himself back on the market.
"He decommitted from Texas today," a source close to Seal-Jones informed Scout.com. "He called and informed (the coaching staff)."
"Yes sir," Seals-Jones confirmed when asked if he had already informed the Texas staff, who was obviously upset that he had made that decision. "They were just trying to talk me out of it."
Seals-Jones also plays basketball and has improved on the hardwood, making him a legit candidate to play both sports in college. He wants the chance to explore all of his options.
"My game has really picked up," Seals-Jones said of his hoops skills.
Texas, Seals-Jones said, "at first" was not too excited about the thought of him playing both sports in college, but LSU, Texas A&M and Baylor are three schools which have turned up the heat in that regard.
The Longhorns are still a legit candidate for his services and he does not want to lose the school as an option, but he wants to make sure he made the right choice and has the opportunity to look in to everything.
"Texas is still high on the list. I just wanted to look around and make sure that Texas is the right place for me and not take anything for granted."
As a junior in 2011, Seals-Jones starred on both sides of the ball for Sealy and was named District MVP after racking up over 1,000 yards of offense and scoring 17 touchdowns.
He is also one of the best in the state on the basketball court, averaging over 30 points and 14 rebounds per game.
Scout.com Evaluation: Jones plays both ways in high school and rarely leaves the field. He has the frame to go up over the top of defenders and make plays vertically down the field. He is also an effective possession weapon and can bust off shorter routes and use his frame to haul in the ball and keep moving the chains. He has some leaping ability and is built to be used on fade routes in the red-zone. With his size, frame and natural athletic ability he could actually be used in a variety of different ways in college depending on how he develops and fills out.
