“Please stop it with the UT talk,” McCutchin tweeted on Wednesday with laughing face emojis. “Y’all already know where my mind at with that school. Very much sick of hearing about it.”

Latrell McCutchin clearly has no love lost for the Texas Longhorns, despite growing up near the Forty Acres. McCutchin received interest from the Longhorns late in his recruitment but locked in his commitment with the Sooners the summer before his senior year.

In this year’s Red River Rivalry, the Oklahoma Sooners battled back for a 55-48 victory over Texas. McCutchin recorded one tackle in that contest.
