Any insight as to why? Typically when you see this it's and indication that the school may have either pulled or possibly lowered the scholarship offer. Not saying that was done here but I have seen that with other schools. Could just be the player decided it was not a good fit.

Unlike most tweets of decommits in which no mention is made of the previous school, Drake went out of his way to thank the Rice coaching staff in his tweet. I hope it was about scholarship money and not him seeking a better opportunity....

...but, alas, he just tweeted his commitment to UT. Given the one-day turnaround (similar to David Shaw, who committed to UT one day after entering the portal).
Wonder if it was for better money-- both scholarship and NIL, the latter of which we simply cannot compete with UT. Regardless, we're starting to see a pattern of Pierce and his staff poaching us.

I believe Rice would’ve been a much better fit than UT IMO. Might have a shot after next season in the portal. However you make good point on NIL and a 25% scholarship goes further at a 25K school than at a 70K school for family Rice will need to get creative with NIL and aid other than Rice Investment if tuition keeps rising exponentially. I know, beating a dead horse again but I couldn’t help it!!!

I don't see the UT commitment tweet. One follow wants him to commit to UT . . . Maybe I'm just missing it.
