Timmons Is Committed, Guy Wants to Be

Inside Texas met with 2009 Texas commit Greg Timmons and his teammate, 2010 Texas prospect Jay Guy, at Houston Eisenhower to talk about the status of Timmons’ commitment, Guy’s significant interest in the Horns and more.
Houston Eisenhower wide receiver Greg Timmons is a solid Texas commit.

“I’ve made a commitment…If you make a commitment to something, you need to follow through with your commitment,” said Timmons. “I’m with Texas.” Timmons was considering taking a visit to Texas A&M and another visit to Oklahoma. He’d specifically mentioned OU as one of his favorites, but he’s since changed his mind about looking around and declared his intention to give his letter of intent to Texas on Signing Day 2009.

He’s not taking any more visits. He’s solid.

“You can’t complain about Texas,” said Timmons. “It’s a perfect fit for anybody, especially if you’re from Texas. Great people, great coaches, great players and everybody just gets along down there.”

Along with Timmons, Inside Texas also spoke with Eisenhower’s biggest 2010 prospect (literally) in 315-pound defensive tackle Jay Guy.

He was one of the sophomores invited to Texas’ spring game and the talented DT jumped at the chance to visit the 40 Acres. Guy told IT that Texas is far and away his favorite school and he listed off reason after reason.

“It’s a nice school. It’s family oriented. Coaches are nice to you. They tell you what you need; they tell you the truth. I like that about a school that tells me the truth,” said Guy.

So which truth that Texas told him stood out the most?

“Education’s always first,” said Guy. “There’s nothing better than graduating from the University of Texas.”

Education is something that’s always been important to Guy. He sports a 3.6 GPA and, along with his gridiron accomplishments, takes pride in his academic ones as well. Because of his work on and off the field, he’s been getting a lot of attention, even as a high school sophomore, but his main focus is UT. “I’m real thankful that these opportunities have been presented to me and really hope I can go to the University of Texas because that’s where I’ve always wanted to be,” said Guy.

The 6-foot-1, 315-pound mauler does plan on taking visits to other schools, but he explained that it’s just so he’s got a good contingency plan.

“Well, I have to visit other schools because Texas might not need me,” said Guy. “I have to take a look at them, but if Texas does offer me, I’m going to say ‘Yeah’, no matter what.”

Timmons already has his offer in hand and he’s saying ‘Yeah’ to Texas by reaffirming his commitment.

“I’m strictly Longhorn, nothing else, strictly Longhorn,” said Timmons.

After Timmons finished the sentence, Guy smiled and reiterated what his favorite school is by simply saying…

“Hook ’em.”
