It is well documented at this point that Jameis Winston grew up loving Texas and wanted to play his college ball there. Mack Brown didn’t think enough of #1 QB in the 2012 class to offer a scholarship, or even return the numerous phone calls from Jameis and his coach:
Jameis Winston on if his HS coach called Mack Brown about him 5 times: "Oh yeah! I even tried to call. I wanted to go to Texas bad!"

Oh and to twist the knife even further, guess which Longhorn legend Jameis loved:
Jameis Winston: Texas was his favorite team and loved Vince Young. No call backs by Texas.

Jameis is obviously still upset or disappointed that Texas didn’t offer him, but I’d say he has done well for himself. I do hate to see how well he would play if they would happen to play Texas.
