Not so fast. He sounds iffy. He still has a visit to UNT this weekend. According the dallasnews.com from 01/19/2018:
I can’t imagine he would flip especially since he announced that he was committing to UTEP. If he was seriously debating UNT then he would have waited a week to take the visit and go from there. Seems like he’s already made up his mind.
How do we know that UTEP's offense wont suit him? I would guess they discussed scheme wise what they were looking to do and how he fits. Remember it's canales that's the OC not Dimmel. I'm sure there will be a good mesh of running and passingUNT offense is more suited to him. Dimel's offense is a little more conservative. Not Kugler conservative, but not like UNT's. UTEP came with a serious interest and an offered immediately, so I hope you're right.
I think that kid Justin Prince(safety) will also have three years left if he signs/commits.I also like that three of the commits are 3-star or above(according to 24/7 sports) that's more 3-star players than in the last three years combined.I like that 2 of our 4 new Junior College players have 3 years of eligibility to play.
Nwachukwu is already at #19 and Locksley at #2 for UTEP's all-time recruits since 2000. Hughes and Fields are in the top 20 alsoI think that kid Justin Prince(safety) will also have three years left if he signs/commits.I also like that three of the commits are 3-star or above(according to 24/7 sports) that's more 3-star players than in the last three years combined.
As someone who is in the loop when it come to football recruiting, I can kinda explain why 247Sports is super legit as far as Texas recruits go.yeah i saw that but i dont really trust 247 . I trust rivals and espn ratings. According to rivals many of these guys are under the radar players. That new WR Andrew only offers were North Texas and Prairie View and he is a 3 star bt 247?? If he was really a 3 star he would have more offers. I hope this coaching staffs knows how to develop players better than Kugler.

Texas A&M's 247 site feeds a lot of legit recruiting info and tidbits from big time camps that are conducted, every camp that is conducted in the summer there are two or three 247 guys compared to maybe one rivals, and maybe one ESPN guy.
Rivals (hope I don't get banned) and ESPN have been passed up 247Sports the past few years in recruiting coverage IN TEXAS in my opinion. Clearly someone saw our 3-star WR from 247Sports in a legit camp compared other studs...Not his fault he got a good eval, and didn't pick up offers living in the DFW.
Read his blurb in this article and maybe this kinda backs up my point....
