https://www.hornsports.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/HSRU.jpgThe latest addition to what is turning out to be a solid 2014 recruiting class for Mack Brown’s Longhorns is All Saints Episcopal (Fort Worth) product Daniel Gresham.Â Gresham, a 5’11” 230 lb. fullback, informed the Texas coaching staff on Monday of his commitment to play football on the collegiate level at the University of Texas.Â Gresham is versatile enough to play tailback or fullback, but his recruitment seems to be primarily to handle the duties of a true fullback.Â Texas has already received a commitment from running back Duke Catalon (Houston Eisenhower) and has offered St Augustine High School running back Leonard Fournette (New Orleans, LA) and Bishop Gorman High School running back Nathan StarksÂ (Las Vegas, NV) scholarships as well.
With the news of Gresham’s commitment Texas fans rightfully assumed highly regarded offensive guard and All Saints teammate Demetrius Knox would immediately follow.Â According to a tweet from ESPN’s Max Olsen, this will not happen immediately and Knox will take his time to commit:
While it has been widely known Gresham and Knox have vowed to play at the same college, nothing is for sure until Knox commits to the Longhorns.Â Texas was the first offer for Gresham while Knox has received offers from no less than 12 schools, including Alabama, Michigan, Nebraska, Texas A&M and Oklahoma State.Â Knox maintains that Texas is still #1 on his list, but Texas fans will not rest easy until he officially commits.Â In the meanwhile Coach Brown added a very solid piece to the 2014 recruiting puzzle with Gresham’s commitment.
