On his first day as coach at Texas, Charlie Strong made one final attempt to convince five-star prospect Tony Brown he should be a Longhorn.

The No. 11 recruit in the ESPN 300 committed to Alabama last week at the Under Armour All-America Game but considered the Longhorns throughout his recruitment. He received a phone call on Monday from Strong, who’s not giving up yet.

But Brown says it’s too late. He’s already in Tuscaloosa and preparing to start classes on Wednesday.
