The Texas Longhorns have signed their 15th and final signee with the signing of Desmond Harrison. Harrison is a 6’8″ 320 pound Lineman, he will add size and strength to a Texas offensive line that got pushed around for much of the season. He is rated as a 4 star on 247 Sports and a 3 star by Rivals.
Desmond Harrison is a Junior College transfer from Contra Costa Community College in San Pablo, California. He held offers from Ole Miss, Oklahoma, Alabama, Arkansas, Cal, Washington, and Maryland among other schools. The Longhorns were one of 4 official visit that Desmond went on. He also officially visited Arizona State, Oklahoma, and N.C. State. He visited the Longhorns on December 7th but didn’t make an announcement about where he would commit to until January 21st, 2013 when he decided to make Austin, Texas his home for the next two years.
The offensive line recruiting in this class has been stellar this year, and I expect Desmond Harrison to make an immediate impact on this offensive line this fall. He is a big, strong man that can push defensive players off the ball and that’s what the Texas Longhorns need. I expect him to compete for a starting role at left tackle or right tackle.
The Texas Longhorns are anticipating the signatures of 11 men today to go along with 15 total signees for the 2012 Football Recruiting Class.
