AUSTIN, Texas -- It's not often that the Longhorns venture out of Texas to land recruits. But that tactic appears to be on the rise with the new geographical ties Texas' first-year coaches have brought here.
The Longhorns are in the mix for several out-of-state prospects, including OL Arik Armstead (Elk Grove, Calif./Pleasant Grove), OL Andrus Peat (Tempe, Ariz./Corona Del Sol), DE Torshiro Davis (Shreveport, La./Woodlawn), S Landon Collins (Geismar, La./Dutchtown) and ATH Nelson Agholor (Tampa, Fla./Berkeley Prep). They are also in pursuit of a few junior college players, which is something Texas has seldom done during Mack Brown's tenure. Those players are OT Donald Hawkins (Senatoba, Miss./Northwest Mississippi Community College), who is committed to Oklahoma State, and DE Denico Autry (Scooba, Miss./East Mississippi Community College).
