Three-star tight end Reese Leitao decommitted from Nebraska on Sunday night, and now a Big 12 power has emerged as a likely landing spot.


The state of Oklahoma’s No. 1-ranked tight end has had a change of heart.

Three-star prospect Reese Leitao, from Jenks, Oklahoma, has had some new developments in his recruitment. After initially committing to the Cornhuskers on Aug. 27, Leitao announced on Sunday night that he has decommitted from Nebraska.

Leitao, the No. 30 tight end in the country, released a statement regarding his decision to back off his pledge to the Cornhuskers.

“Through much discussion with my family, a lot of thoughts, and prayer, I have decided that it is in my best interest to decommit from the University of Nebraska. I would like to thank all of the coaches that believed in me and #GBR Nation but for now, I will be reopening my recruitment. [sic]”

What Leitao did not touch on about his decommitent is the fact it came two weeks after he received an offer from the Texas Longhorns. Three days after being offered by Tom Herman’s staff, the 3-star tight end took an official visit to Austin on Dec. 9 right before the recruiting dead period hit.

Now, it appears as though the Longhorns are in a great position to land Leitao’s commitment.

At 6-foot-4, 234 lbs Leitao is a solid run blocker in space and blocks through the whistle. He also does a nice job of reach blocking and setting the edge.

As a receiver, Leitao can stretch the field vertically and provides a huge target for quarterbacks in the red zone — very physical tight end.
