Dante King was caught in the midst of some fun over the weekend. Nothing major, or noteworthy in regards to conjuring up trouble, but King was caught by a few fellow Texas Longhorn fans. When we caught up with King, this is what he had to say:
"You know, man. I was born in raised in Texas. I know exactly the type o'folks that come through here. I see so many good fashioned, Southern people, and it feels good to be home. Partially why I committed to Texas was because I wanted to be close to home. I wanted to be my friends, my family, and of course my dog. It's surreal because I grew up in a Longhorn family. My Pops, and my Mamma we're both avid fans of Texas. So when the door came knocking, I had to take it. I'll be the first to admit, I love the attention I'm getting. I love that people can come to me on the streets, and just know that I'm part of the tradition associated with Texas. It's good to be home, but it's also great to be apart of a winning tradition. You take a look around the rest of the NCAA, and I'm not aiming on throwing shade, but signing with Texas was a match made in heaven. I grew up here. I was a kid watching the likes of Texas Legend: Colt McCoy, and others. I just can't wrap my finger around all this. It seems so surreal. I had offers. And they were all nice, but the moment I opened that letter and saw that Longhorn logo. I was in. End of story. It's an honor to be here. Hook 'em, baby! Let's go Longhorns! "
