Georgia offers Texas TE commit Smythe

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS – Durham Smythe (Belton, Texas/Belton) has never wavered in his commitment to Texas, but that doesn’t mean recruiters aren’t still trying to land the four-star tight end.

“Thing have been quiet for a while, but yesterday Georgia randomly offered me,” Smythe said Friday.

Georgia tight ends coach John Lilly reached out to Smythe via a Facebook message to make the offer. Smythe was surprised by the gesture, but the 6-foot-5, 230-pound prospect said it came far too late.

“The coach said they were going to offer me right before I committed in March and that they’d like to do that now,” Smythe said. “It was really random. It’s nice, but it doesn’t mean anything at this point.”

Smythe originally chose Texas over Stanford back on March 8, and he said coaches from Stanford, Texas A&M and Notre Dame, among others, have continued to reach out to him to gauge his interest.

His answer to all of them hasn’t changed: Thanks, but no thanks.

“Like I said, at this point it doesn’t mean anything to me,” he said.
