Longhorns top RB commit still firm
By ESPN.com staff
Texas commit Malcolm Brown, ranked as the nation's No. 2 running back and No. 7 overall recruit, says he's still firmly committed to the Longhorns.
The Longhorns former offensive coordinator, Greg Davis, resigned after the season and Texas hired Boise State offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin on Friday. Brown's future position coach, Major Applewhite, was named co-offensive coordinator as well, but Harsin will call the plays.
On Saturday, at the U.S. Army All-American Game, Brown told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he's still confident in his decision made back in August to attend Texas.
"Everyone knew I was still committed to playing for the University of Texas," Brown told the paper. "I'm excited about going to Texas and playing for the new coaches. I've met some of the guys before, and it's going to be fun to play with them."
The 6-foot, 215-pounder managed just seven yards on three carries, but as one of the top players in the state of Texas, he was reportedly hounded by autograph seekers and fans throughout the weekend in San Antonio for the game.
Brown is expected to make an official visit to Texas next weekend.
