While the University of Texas made their second stop to Pine Tree's practice today, two more colleges got their first glimpse of 2014 quarterback Caleb Chumley and the Pirates.

According to Pine Tree athletic director and head coach Derek Fitzhenry, the Longhorns along with Arkansas and Minnesota stopped by to see the 6-5, 220-pound Chumley and 6-0, 170, 2014 cornerback LaMarcus Reese.

Oregon, which sent tight end receiver coach Tom Osborne to Texas for the sole purpose of watching Chumley practice this past month, also sent word that if Chumley attended a camp in June an offer would follow, according to Fitzhenry.

Texas was in town again for the second time in as many weeks.

"They're very interested in Chumley as a receiver and will continue to keep an eye on him," Fitzhenry said.

Minnesota described Chumley as "their kind of guy," according to Fitzhenry.

"They run and throw the ball and they said he fits in with the type of quarterback they're looking for," Fitzhenry said.

The Gophers also observed Reese for a role in the secondary.

Arkansas was also in town for Chumley and Reese. More on the Razorbacks visit coming later.
