There have been quite a few surprises on National Signing Day, and the latest involves outside linebacker Torshiro Davis.

Davis, from Shreveport, Louisiana, had originally committed to play football at LSU nearly a year ago to the day. Then, surprisingly,when he signed his letter of intent on Wednesday it was Texas he was committing to. Davis had visited Texas along with Alabama in spite of his commitment to Texas, but maintained throughout the process that he was strongly leaning toward LSU the entire time.

It seems that changed in the last few days.

When asked what had changed for Davis, he said "some of the players don't seem happy down there [at LSU]."

Davis stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 222 pounds. He also runs a 4.56 40-yard dash, and will be a welcome addition to the Longhorns pass rush in the years to come.

Keep up with all the latest from National Signing Day at's National Signing Day Central.

Torshiro Davis chooses Texas

Writer made a mistake. Davis was committed to LSU, not Texas. He said that at the beginnig of the article but swapped it around later on. Just clarifying...
