"There ain't too much people can say other than to wait and watch me at Texas. I'm reporting on January 16th, and the coaches say it's my position to lose. I'm coming in as a starter and intend to keep my position by working hard."
Texas head coach Mack Brown called Hawkins today.
"He's happy I'm a Horn and the Longhorn family is happy," said Hawkins. "Texas also signed Brandon Moore from East Mississippi. The fans seem pretty excited. Texas gets most of its players from out-of-state, and we think we'll be very popular.
"I can't wait to get there. I'm going to work hard. I can't wait to play in front of 100,000 UT fans.
"All the expectations that have been given to me? I'm going to meet them.
"Hook 'em, Horns."
