Numerous sources, including RantSports.com and BurntOrangeNation.com, say that Seals-Jones hopes to play both football and basketball in college. He lists Texas A&M, Baylor and LSU as possible candidates—all would give him the option to do both—but Texas is still his No. 1 choice, according to Longhorns commit Jake Raulerson.

"He said he is just trying to make sure," Raulerson said. "This is a big decision and he is just trying to make sure."

Seals-Jones is listed as a 5-star athlete on Scout.com and is the No. 7 overall player on ESPN's 150. Without his pledge, Texas sits with 14 verbal commitments, including two 4-star receivers.

At 6'5", 220 pounds, Seals-Jones possesses the ultimate prototypical size for his position. Although he plays quarterback for his high school team, he's projected to be a extremely dangerous deep threat and has the strength to make big plays in short-yardage situations.

Seals-Jones finished his junior season with 761 yards and eight touchdowns passing, while compiling 1,245 yards off 114 carries (10.9 ypc) and 15 touchdowns on the ground. He also averaged a double-double in basketball, scoring 32.3 points per game and grabbing 15.2 rebounds.
