Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian is pleased with National Signing Day.
“I thought we accomplished kind of what we thought we could accomplish getting into the second signing day of the signing period,” Sarkisian said, according to 247Sports. “When I came on board with 19 players already signed, we really tried to do a thorough job of trying to assess our roster as best we could in looking at the game tape of currently what we had, getting an idea of the movement skills of our players on the field and maybe where they would fit scheme-wise now that we have our coaching staff on board, and then identify the players that were available that we felt like could help the University of Texas, not only on the football field, but in the classroom and from a character standpoint of what they meant moving forward to represent the university.”
