NCF On The Trail: Brandon Moore

videoAUSTIN, Texas -- It is all about the family for Texas’ newest 2015 commit.

After receiving an offer from the Longhorns on Friday afternoon, defensive tackle Bryce English (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) wasted little time in committing to Texas. In doing so, he’ll eventually join a program coached by his godfather, Texas recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Bruce Chambers.

“I’ve been wanting to be a Longhorn ever since middle school,” English said. “I’ve been throwing up 'Hook’em' forever. My dreams are finally coming true.”

English (5-foot-11, 312 pounds) is the second sophomore to commit to the Longhorns in less than a week. Offensive lineman Aaron Garza (Sherman, Texas/Sherman) committed during Texas’ sophomore day on Saturday.

The product of one of Texas’ top high school programs, English severely helps fill a position of need across the interior of the Longhorns’ defensive front. Texas missed out on its top defensive tackle target in 2013 – A’Shawn Robinson – and ended up not signing a signing a single defensive tackle.

But they’ve got one now, one the Longhorns can count on to hold true to his commitment over the next two years.

“Coach [Mack] Brown was telling me that they wanted to offer me and didn’t want me to go to any other schools,” English said. “When you commit you stay true to Texas. That’s what I’m going to do.”

Texas kicked off on Monday what could be a fruitful final few weeks of 2013 recruiting by picking up its first verbal commit since October.

The Longhorns have landed pledge No. 14 from Contra Costa (Calif.) College offensive lineman Desmond Harrison.

The three-star prospect chose Texas over Arizona State, USC, Oklahoma and offers from more than 20 schools.

“This feels real good,” Harrison said. “I feel like I just made the best decision. It was a tight decision. It really boiled down to Arizona State and Texas, and they really made it difficult. It just felt like Texas was the best for me.”

Harrison had been leaning toward choosing Texas for a while, but the final decision was tougher than he’d expected.

“It was a last-minute decision,” he said. “Everything came down to the end. I was still thinking about it today."

A 6-foot-8, 310-pound lineman who is being recruited to play left tackle, Harrison took an official visit to Texas on Dec. 7 and is the program’s second junior college pledge, joining Butte (Calif.) College tight end signee Geoff Swaim.

East Mississippi Community College (Scooba, Miss.) defensive tackle Brandon Moore committed to Texas Wednesday, according to William Wilkerson of ESPN's HornsNation.com. He made an official visit to Austin, Texas November 19th.

“(Defensive tackles) Coach (Bo) Davis came in the office today and I committed,” Moore said. “I just feel real comfortable with him. I feel like he is the right person to get me to where I am trying to go. So that’s why I committed.”

Moore originally signed with Alabama in 2009 as a high three-star prospect out of Carver High School (Montgomery, Ala.). He was a member of the Crimson Tide's 2009 national title team before moving onto EMCC.
