3-Star O-Line commit Aaron Garza has just announced his de-commitment from Texas. He is one of the many young star athletes that have decided against wearing a Longhorn uniform. Aaron Garza was only a 3-Star and I think the Longhorns can get by without him, but Im not worried about Garza, I'm worried about the trend of recruits that have decommited or flipped to Texas rival schools.
Garza was one of the many former commits that have decommitted since the arrival of new Texas Head Coach Charlie Strong. Personally I don't know why anyone would wan't to decommit because of a new coaching change, since I think that Charlie Strong is the perfect fit for the job other than the fact that he is not a big name coach like Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, or reigning national championship coach Jimbo Fisher. That was probably what Texas Booster Red McCombs was getting at when he said that Texas hiring Charlie Strong as head coach was a "kick in the face". All I know is that if we keep losing recruits our chances of winning a national championship are getting smaller.
During his high school career, Aaron Garza was one of the Top rated Offensive Guards in the state of Texas. One of the reasons why Garza had committed to Texas was because he wanted to play for the great coach Mack Brown. But now that Brown has retired, Garza most likely felt that there was no reason for him to play at Texas when Mack is not there. Garza also has an offer from Baylor that is still on the table, so there is one more player that we are losing to an in-state rival school. This has been a rocky recruiting start for new head coach Charlie Strong and the University of Texas.
