Matthew Hegarty "Felt At Home" At Texas ($)


It's almost something of a recruiting cliche at this point that the players who commit to Texas instantly feel at home and appreciate the family atmosphere -- otherwise, why would they commit? Perhaps it's more telling for prospects considering the Longhorns to feel that way and Aztec (NM) offensive tackle Matthew Hegarty, after spending two days in Austin and attending both of the first two spring practices, commented twice in his Saturday interview with Orangebloods that he felt at home. The Longhorns clearly made a strong impression and Hegarty indicated that Texas will be in the mix when he makes a decision in the next several months. Junior Day visits to Notre Dame and Cal loom -- watch out for the Irish, as Hegarty's grandfather is a big Notre Dame fan, but the Longhorns are certainly in good shape with the talented tackle.

Matthew Hegarty Likely Junior Day Attendee


The plan for some time has been for Aztec (NM) offensive lineman Matthew Hegarty to make it to Austin for the second Texas Junior Day on February 27th. However, the problem was that if Hegarty's basketball team advanced far enough into the district round of the playoffs, his basketball commitment would not allow him to make the trip. The good news for Texas fans is that Aztec lost to Farmington on Wednesday night and will not play this weekend. Having already planned for that eventuality, Hegarty will be able to use the plane tickets that he and his family purchased in case Aztec did end up losing. Hegarty is a top national prospect whose stock has soared after a strong performance at the Army Junior combine and is a no-brainer to receive an offer this weekend. As long as there are scholarships available, there should be a spot for Hegarty and the initial signs are promising that Texas could be one of his top choices.
