Texas Longhorns pick up 2012 commitments
College coaches can’t just go down to their local store and get this kind of two-for-one deal.
Texas had a great weekend, recruiting wise, as Brenham (Texas) teammates Malcom Brown and Tim Cole — who play defensive tackle and linebacker respectively — decided they would sign with the Longhorns next February as part of the class of 2012. The battle for their services had been raging most of the spring — mostly between the Longhorns and Texas A&M.
That brings Texas’ tally to 15 recruits for the class of 2012, while the Aggies maintain the lead as the nation’s biggest class with 17 commitments.
Brown is rated an early five-star recruit by Scout.com, while Cole is a four-star player.
“I think A&M is a great school, as are the others,” Brenham coach Glen West told the Austin American-Statesman. “I don’t think there was a bad choice for them. It got to a point where after visiting schools several times, Texas is what they felt was best for them. As a high school coach, that’s all I want for my players, for them to do what they feel is best for them.”
