Signing Day Recap: Mack Brown to Toughen Up On Recruits Who Waffle

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT

The Longhorns signed just 15 players Wednesday on National Signing Day. Four of them are offensive lineman. The O-Line recruits average 6' 5" and more than 300 pounds.

Texas appears to be fine when it comes to protecting the passer. Protecting their recruits? That's a totally different story. This recruiting season saw five players decommitment after originally making a pledge to play in Austin.

"The fifteen that we got are very passionate about being at Texas and that's what you want," said Brown Wednesday. "And very honestly, if a young person tells you they're coming and the parents tell you they're coming and then they don't, you wouldn't want them to be here."

Even Bastrop's Antwuan Davis, who signed with the Longhorns Wednesday, admitted he flirted with other schools when the eyes of Texas didn't shine as bright

"There was one time I had questions: after the Oklahoma game," Davis told KEYE TV sports Wednesday. "I saw what was happening and I was like, this isn't great right here."

In light of the spike in decommitments, Mack will not bury his head in the sand of the recruiting trail. Brown said from now on, he will not rule out pulling a scholarship offer if a player chooses to take other recruiting visits after committing to UT.

"We've allowed a couple of kids to commit and still look around the past couple of years, but we are going to go back and say we're not doing that anymore," Brown told reporters Wednesday. "If you're committed to us, be committed and if you go look - we are going to go look."

So while the class is lacking in numbers, the 2013 recruiting season could end up being one of the most impactful Mack Brown has seen.

"If you're committed to us and you're looking, that's a simple message - we are going to look too," Brown reiterated. "And if we find somebody as good as you that wants to come and you're looking around, then we'll take him."

UT's spring game isn't until March 31st, but the Longhorns appear to have already started playing defense.
