Christian Westerman commits to Texas

Russell Has a Change of Heart, De-Commits

San Antonio Sam Houston defensive tackle Quincy Russell decided that he wants to take more visits less than 24 hours after giving his verbal commitment to the Longhorns. Saying that he wants to take more visits, Russell indicated that he is not ruling out re-committing to Texas, but said that the Longhorns have only three scholarships remaining -- running back, defensive tackle, and defensive end. Russell reports 17 scholarships offers and may visit Nebraska in the near future.

Cedric Reed in Austin for practice/sightseeing

Both sites are reporting that Cleveland defensive end Cedric Reed is in town watching practice and seeing the city of Austin. Reed has been quiet publicly about his intentions, but all the information coming out from people close to Reed suggests that the Longhorns lead and a decision will happen in the near future.

No. 15 -- Sedrick Flowers to Texas

Apparently a last-ditch attempt by Les Miles to woo Galena Park North Shore lineman Sedrick Flowers to LSU by giving him a shot at playing on the defensive side of the ball was not enough to secure his services. Inside Texas is reporting that Flowers has given his commitment to the Texas Longhorns, joining Josh Cochran, Taylor Doyle, and Marcus Hutchins in the offensive line class of 2011. Flowers is almost certainly an interior line candidate and though he could be described as a mauler because of his absolute tenacity and desire to maul his opponents, he's also extremely athletic. A former teammate of Trey Hopkins, Flowers is the most highly-rated offensive lineman currently committed and is a consensus top-10 player in the state.

DT Quincy Russell Visited, Received Offer ($)

The latest-breaking news of a visitor from the first Texas Junior Day last weekend was that of San Antonio Sam Houston's Quincy Russell, one of three defensive tackles who visited campus. Like Desmond Jackson and Marquis Anderson, Russell also received a Texas offer, but obviously did not commit while on campus. With offers from Nebraska and Oklahoma, among several others, Russell plans on taking other visits and doesn't plan on making a decision in the immediate future. One of the visits, though his coach didn't mention it in the article, could be to Oklahoma this weekend for the Sooner Junior Day. However, a major factor could be that the Longhorns likely have only one spot available in the class -- there's some pressure on Russell or Anderson to jump on it if they want to become a Longhorn.

No. 13 -- Marcus Hutchins to Texas

Just when it looked like the momentous day of recruiting had finally come to a close and I began to attempt a summary of the day's mind-bending events, another commitment surfaced. DeSoto offensive tackle Marcus Hutchins confirmed through his head coach that Texas did indeed extend him an offer and that he made the decision to become a Texas Longhorn and the 13th member of the 2011 recruiting class.

No. 12 -- Sheroid Evans to Texas

An absolutely incredible day in recruiting continues with a commitment from another top 10 player in the state -- Sugarland Dulles safety Sheroid Evans, a track star with incredible range at the position. Along with Desmond Jackson, Evans is the most surprising commitment of the day -- apparently he feels comfortable enough with the track program at Texas to put his feelings for the football program over the top. Evans plans on competing in track at the collegiate level and it's no wonder why, as the kid has run a 23.5 200m.

No. 10 -- Leroy Scott to Texas

It looks like the coaching staff has changed their focus to the defensive side of the ball, as Leroy Scott becomes the second confirmed defensive commit of the day (Mykkele Thompson could play offense or defense). Cornerback is a major position of need in the class and Scott is the best cover corner in the class -- he can do everything exceptionally well at the position except catch the ball. He'll need to spend some time on the JUGGS machine, but he's big time nonetheless. No complaints from this corner.

No. 8 -- Desmond Jackson to Texas

In the first major surprise of the class, Spring Westfield's Desmond Jackson, the top defensive tackle in the state and a certifiable badass, becomes the eighth commitment of the 2011 class and the second defensive player to pledge for the 'Horns.

No. 6 -- Joe Bergeron to Texas

The sixth commitment of the 2011 Texas recruiting class and the third of the day is North Mesquite running back/fullback Joe Bergeron, the best big back in the class and the presumed short-yardage replacement for Cody Johnson who could also play some fullback for Texas.
