"He's fun to watch, but that's the way he practices. He takes it from practice to the game, and the same thing happens at practice. He's a student -- he's one of those guys that listens. Even during the game he'll come back and say, 'Hey, listen, when that guy checks, this is what it is, this is the run play it is. Or when he checks this, this is a pass play.' He's always talking and communicating on the sideline. He works, and that's the respect that the players give him because he works so hard."-- Texas head coach Charlie Strong on his star junior defensive tackle Malcom Brown.
"I've (visited Texas) two times. Coach Strong -- I talked to him on Wednesday. He told me on the first play of the game when they play Notre Dame next year, he said he's going to dump me the ball. He's saying they don't want to redshirt people and want me on the field ASAP and become a huge playmaker for the program. That's something I'm looking forward to. I want to get on the field as quick as I can."-- Mesquite Poteet ATH DeAndre McNeal to 247Sports
"Really the only two programs I still have interest in are Auburn and Texas, and I’m trying to kind of decide if I want to stay committed to Texas or commit to Auburn. It’s kind of hard to say which way I’m leaning. It kind of moves around a little bit. But really I’m just kind of flip-flopping and weighing out all of the options."ESPN on the current status of Burt's recruitment. He visited Auburn recently and then Texas last weekend, but the trip didn't firm up his pledge and 247Sports now considers him a "soft" commit.
So yeah, WR John Burt and DT Du'Vonta Lampkin, announce on Sun./Mon. respectively. Both are big needs and likely, Longhorns.— EricInsideTexas (@EricNahlin) July 26, 2014
Texas used to be, but I’m not too sure anymore. I went to the Texas A&M-Florida game and the atmosphere was really good. Now I just want to take these visits to games and see how it is at each school – see how the atmosphere is."-- 2013 Katy Seven Lakes OL Caleb Benenoch on the Longhorns ($). Are the Aggies surging in his recruitment?
