Brown addresses Winston recruitment

By Jake Trotter

Texas head coach Mack Brown joined the ESPNU College Football podcast Wednesday, and explained why the Longhorns didn't recruit Florida State QB Jameis Winston:
"There was a season where the Longhorns were 5-7 and had a lot of staff turnover and it was hard to recruit out of state guys and that’s what happened with Winston … a guy he trusted didn’t think they had a chance so they moved on. You can’t get every player you want and you learned to deal with it."

Brown discussed other topics with Matt Barrie and Ivan Maisel on the podcast. Click here to listen to the rest of the interview.
