The 5-foot-9, 175-pounder is a versatile defensive back who will start off at cornerback at the next level. But with the way he plays — vicious behind his pads — it isn't hard to guess that he could find a niche role, either as a smaller safety or as a nickel back who isn't afraid to come up in run support.
Vaccaro, who was both offered and accepted his offer over the weekend, is a potential grayshirt candidate, depending on which other recruits the Longhorns land in the 2012 class. If Texas fills up, Vaccaro will redshirt. If not, he will arrive at Texas as a typical recruit.
Vaccaro is rated as a two-star cornerback by by Scout.com. He makes the 25th commitment of the 2012 Texas class.
