CHARLOTTE, nc. --- Corbin Daly, punter from Ardrey Kell High School (Charlotte, North Carolina) has officially decommitted from the University of Texas at Austin.
As the #2 punter in the nation in the Class of 2014, the 6'3 190 pound football star has been highly recruited by Texas, South Carolina, UNC Chapel Hill, Ohio State, Michigan State, Texas A&M, UNC Charlotte and several other Division I universities.
I spoke with Daly early this morning on his decommitment from the Home of the Longhorns and he had positive remarks on the decision he made on the night of Tuesday, December 3, 2013. He noted that he was thankful for the opportunity to attend and play football at the University of Texas, however he felt that Texas was not the best fit for what he wanted to accomplish.
He spoke with Mack Brown and Major Applewhite late Tuesday evening and discussed his decommitment and informed them that he was focused primarily on staying close to home on the East Coast.
Daly informed me that he was contemplating his decision on attending the University of Texas when he first heard of the rumors and claims that Mack Brown, the head coach for the University of Texas would be fired at the conclusion of the 2013-2014 season. Adding on to this, Daly believed staying close to his family in Charlotte, North Carolina was one of the most significant aspects that would determine where he would attend college.
Corbin Daly is a remarkable athlete. Earlier this week, he was presented with an invitation to play in the US Army All-American Bowl held inside the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. He represents one of ninety players selected from all across the United States to play in this premier high school football all-star game, which will take place on January 4, 2014.
