Safety Picks UTSA

On Monday evening, UTSA's 2015 recruiting class grew to 17.

Late Monday evening, Port Arthur Memorial Safety Cornelius Levine had decided he waited long enough.

"I was just thinking to myself, why not commit now," said Levine.

And commit is what Levine did. After watching UTSA demolish Houston in week one of the 2014 regular season, Levine said he was ready to pledge himself to the Roadrunners.

"They (UTSA) played well the other day. I was already expecting that, they're a good team," said Levine.

Levine held offers from UTSA, Houston, New Mexico St, and Nevada.

When asked if his commitment to UTSA was a direct result of last Friday's game, Levine said that it was more than that.

"We've been talking a lot," said Levine. "There's a chance I might the opportunity to play early. I like the secondary coach and I like their system, it's similar to what we run."

Levine is currently 6'0" and 180lbs, but is trying to add more weight. He describes himself as a physical player.

"I'm a ball-hawk," said Levine. "I like making plays. I'm a good tackler and like playing physical."

In his first week of play, Levine recorded two tackles and recovered a fumble that he returned for a touchdown.

Levine's teammate, DB Jacorie Jones, also holds a committable UTSA offer. Jones is a soft commit to UH but has been having steady contact from UTSA.

Levine is the 17th commit to the 2015 class and the third defensive player. Here is the entire 2015 recruiting class so far:
