DeMarco Cobbs decommits from Tennessee, commits to Texas

Jason Suchomel of Orangebloods.com, the Rivals Texas site, has a story up tonight confirming that athlete DeMarco Cobbs of Tulsa, OK has decommitted from the Vols and pledged his services to Texas ($).  The story includes quotes from Cobbs on the situation.  Cobbs was one of a trio of Tennessee commitments following the UCLA game, and is currently ranked as the 9th best athlete and 120th best overall player in the 2010 class.

The 6'1" athlete is also rated as the best player in the state of Oklahoma, and is a surprise pickup for the Longhorns.  Speculation from the Tennessee perspective runs full spectrum:  on one side, this is a significant loss for a UT class of 2010 that was ranked 6th going into Thursday by Rivals.com.  On the other side, the uber-confident Kiffin Chimera continues to recruit so hard and so well that one wonders if decommitments are only going to pave the way for greater commitments down the line.  Either way, Cobbs looked like a player Tennessee wanted and is certainly a player Texas does, so for now he's one that got away...
