Flour Bluff Corpus Christi DB Jalen Campbell became UT's third commit in the class of 2015, joining OL Aaron Garza and DT Bryce English.
After winning the Defensive Skill MVP at a recent Rivals camp, the 5'11", 175 lb. DB's stock was bound to take off. Not sure anybody thought it would take off this quickly though. Jalen was initially offered at UT's Sophomore Day, and wrapped things up Saturday evening right before the Spring Game.
Haven't gotten to see too much of him on film yet (problem with these sophomore types), but he looks like a coverage CB all the way to me. Loves baiting QB's into interceptions and knows what to do with the ball after he takes it away.
For what it's worth, Geoff Ketchum and Dustin McComas over at Orangebloods absolutely love the guy and were raving about him more than possibly any prospect at the Rivals camp.
Wescott will likely be along with a more in-depth breakdown eventually, but suffice it to say Texas' decision to aggressively go after sophomore recruits for the first time in history has paid incalculable dividends so far. For many of these kids (like Campbell), Texas is their first offer, first visit, and opposing schools no longer have the opportunity to disparage the Horns before a prospect even sets foot on campus.
At least for now, we're back to setting the terms in the recruiting game. As it should be.
Hook 'Em, and enjoy the Spring Game...provided you're able to watch it. Some Campbell highlights are linked below.
