The Texas running back took to Twitter on Tuesday to affirm his commitment to the Longhorns.

US PRESSWIRE

After Texas Longhorns sophomore running back Malcolm Brown failed to record a single carry against TCU, rumors swirled about his future in Austin. On Tuesday, Brown shot down the speculation:

Brown had appeared to have returned from the ankle injury he suffered against Oklahoma State when he carried the ball 10 times against Iowa State. Prior to the Kansas State game, co-offensive coordinator/running backs coach Major Applewhite revealed that Brown hadn't been entirely healthy heading into the Thanksgiving game against the Horned Frogs:

Coming out of the Iowa State game, he kind of got banged up a little bit so he didn't look as good during the off week and then came back last week and started to look a lot better, back to that form going into the TCU game. That was that Tuesday of practice before we played on Thursday. So he was still kind of getting back to being 100 percent and then went back from that Iowa State game and then was working his way back. Then Joe and Jonathan were going in the TCU game.

And in the game against Kansas State, Brown broke off a 27-yard run that had him looking as healthy as he has all season before adding a touchdown following DJ Monroe's long carry. In turn, fellow sophomore back Joe Bergeron only receive one carry in the game.

The rumors may have been a bit silly in the first place, but consider them completely tabled now. Unless you want to persist in being an idiot.

Hey, his words, not mine.
