Texas recruit decommits, possibly for basketball reasons.

Texas high school rising senior wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones, xonsidered by ESPN to be the top WR recruiting candidate in the country,  decommits from Texas 2013 recruiting class. This is possibly due to his desire to play basketball as well as football.

 "It is believed that this decision could have something to do with his desire to play both football and basketball in college, which LSU and Baylor Bears both have given him the option to do. When reached by phone Tuesday night, Eric Thomas, Seals-Jones' AAU basketball coach, had no comment on Seals-Jones' decision. 

A 6-foot-5, 220-pound receiver ranked No. 7 in the ESPN 150, Seals-Jones originally picked Texas over LSU on Feb. 22."
 LSU and Baylor were better teams than Texas last season. LSU probably has the best chance of the three schools to repeat its success from last season. Baylor went to the Eilte Eight. in the NCAA men's basketball tournament, and will probably go back to the tournament in 2013.  Texas may want to put the basketball option on the table for Seals-Jonesas as soon as possible.
