Here is a comment from Smythe High School coach Southern to Hookem Bobby Burton.
Southern said that Smythe called Texas defensive coordinator and area recruiter Manny Diaz and informed him of his decision. Recently-departed offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin was originally his recruiter. Harsin accepted the head coaching position at Arkansas State on Tuesday.
No, it didnt and Harsin was not Smythe's recruiter.
Who was Smythe recruiter?
I believe he left for basically the same reasons others left. The program has no buzz, is not winning like it used to, is not the "hot girl" at the party anymore. He talked about academics, but that is a smoke screen. Texas confers the most prestigious degrees in the state with the possible exception of Rice.
And I didn't speak to Rodney Southern. He spoke to Jeff Howe.
Harsin's departure had nothing to do with Smythe.
What's interesting is that the key recruiter for Smythe at Stanford was Mike Sanford who just got a head coaching gig elsewhere.

Bruce Chambers and Manny Diaz.
Where do you get your information? Thats the second or third straight post with bad info.
Roe is on FIYAA!!!
Here is where I got my info.........
Smythe checks in at 6'5'', 233 pounds, which is good size for a tight end out of high school, but even more impressive is that 247Sports has him listed as running a 4.75-second 40-yard dash—which is good speed for a player of his size
He's also ranked as the No. 14 tight end in this recruiting class according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Here's the report on the news, via 247Sports, citing Bobby Burton of Hookem.com:
Texas lost a four-star commitment Wednesday when tight end Durham Smythe (Belton, Texas) backed out of his pledge to the Longhorns.
Durham High head coach Rodney Southern confirmed the news to Bobby Burton of Hookem.com.
Any decommitment is a bad decommitment, but when you factor in that Smythe will go down as Texas' fourth lost commitment of this cycle (per 247Sports), that makes Smythe's decision even worse for the Longhorns.
It sounds like he's going to Stanford and, if so, the academics angle would make a lot of sense. IIRC Smythe didn't have a lot of offers when he first committed. We probably weren't his #1 choice to begin with so he bailed when he picked up the offer he wanted.
I think it was your mom.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Mando you seemed pretty upset and wanted to know where I got my information. See below. I hope life is treating you good today. You deserve it....

You are incorrect. Stanford offered him the 1st time around, and he still choose Texas.
I am guessing someplace like Bleacher report.
Not upset at all my man. Just wondering, since so many are questioning your info.
I'm soooo confused!!!
In your original post last week about the Smythe decomit, you mentioned he had already reached out to a school... which one was that?
So you take a "Report" off of FanL1me, whatever the hell that is, that claims to quote Burton and you take it as a fact?
Your original source is all jacked up as Bobby, Jeff and others have already told you.
Note to self: Don't follow FanL1me.
I'll wisely take your advice in the future. Enjoy your Day...Hope your day is as good as mine....
All Roe needs to do is throw a death threat out there and he'd pass as TexasPride.
Perhaps watching #11 on Stanford kick butt all year was a deciding factor, while are TEs were just kinda there.
