AUSTIN, Texas -- Since he committed to Texas on Feb. 12, four-star linebacker Alex De La Torre (Denton, Texas/ Ryan) has taken it upon himself to be one of the ringleaders of the Longhorns’ 2012 recruiting class.

“It’s important for me because I want to make sure we all get on the same page before two-a-days start and we get ready to go,” De La Torre said. “Sometimes guys don’t really talk. It’s hard for guys to get out there and get to know each other, be a family before the season starts. I’ve been a big advocate for us to become a family.”

With so many recruits (and fellow Texas commitments) in Austin on official visits, this past weekend served as the perfect opportunity for De La Torre to continue his duties as one of Texas’ biggest advocates to Mario Edwards, the nation’s top prospect and a Florida State commit, who was also visiting.
