Erik Huhn has faxed in his letter of intent to the University of Texas making him the 5th signee of the day and the 9th of the 2012 football class in total. Eric Huhn completed his signing at Cibolo Steele High School in Cibolo, Texas.
Erik Huhn chose the Texas Longhorns over 13 different offers. These offers include Georgia, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Houston, Utah, TCU, Baylor and Texas Tech among other offers. Erik Huhn committed to the Texas Longhorns on June 3rd after an impressive summer camp. In an interview with Orangebloods.com, Erik Huhn said the decision was easy.
“We went to coach (Mack) Brown’s office and he said he wanted me there. He asked if I wanted to be there and I told him that’s where I wanted to be. So we said it was a done deal,” Huhn said.
Erik Huhn will be a likely candidate for playing time at Safety with the departure of Kenny Vaccaro. There is a lot of youth at both Safety positions and with Kenny Vaccaro the only consistent player in the secondary in the 2012 season.
The Texas Longhorns are anticipating the signatures of 13 men today to go along with 17 total signees for the 2012 Football Recruiting Class.
