Four-star CB Jaylon Guilbeau decommits from Texas
Texas appeared to be moving in a positive direction within its defensive back class over the past week. Four-star cornerback / security Austin Jordan signed over the weekend, while four-star security Bryce Anderson is expected on July 30th.
By early Thursday morning, Terry Joseph's first cycle of recruiting inevitably got some negative news.
Four-star cornerback Jaylon Guilbeau has announced his retirement from Texas. It was the longest-running Longhorn commit dating back to the days of Tom Herman.
You can read his statement on Twitter here:
First of all, I would like to thank all of my friends, mentors, coaches and loved ones. But none of this would be possible without trust in the Lord.
After careful consideration with my family and countless hours of prayer, I have decided that it is in my best interest to resume my recruiting and remove myself from the University of Texas.
Please respect my decision. As a $ Hookem coaching staff and fans for everything.

Two state schools are sure to be on Guilbeau's heels in TCU and Texas A&M. Both were able to accommodate the four-star cornerback during visits in June.
Nick Harris of Horns247 has already made a crystal ball prediction for Guilbeau to become a Horned Frog. Every time Gary Patterson chases a defensive player in the state, you know he's a good one.
The cornerback could be a huge failure for Steve Sarkisian and his staff.
On the 247Sports composite, Guilbeau ranks as the No. 152 player and No. 17 cornerback in the country. Within the state of Texas, the four-star award breaks the top 30 prospects to 29th place.
