USAAAB: Longhorn Defensive Commitments Strong

Looking at the Texas defensive commitments' performance on Day One of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices.

A'Shawn Robinson

Robinson was one of the most physically impressive players on the hoof, a massive man with long arms and surprising athleticism. You figured that Robinson would show out well against top competition … not only is he a top talent, but he has a mean streak that shows up when he's challenged. And he didn't disappoint. Robinson showed tremendous mobility for a guy of his size, so much so that he actually played defensive end as well as defensive tackle. Robinson was a force to be reckoned with, and he continues to make a play as the top overall prospect in the state.

Antwuan Davis

Davis didn't stand out in the early session, which for a defensive back, isn't really a bad thing. He didn't make any big plays or interceptions that I saw, but he also wasn't getting left behind, either. Like Robinson, Davis is somebody that you notice physically, a guy built like a safety who runs like a corner, and he played both. I tried to focus on him more in the second practice, and Davis did some nice things. On one play, he had an excellent jam on Derrick Griffin, somebody who is significantly bigger.
