Texas Two-Steps in Keller

Texas landed a pair of commitments Thursday night when Keller brothers Sione and Tristan Teuhema pledged their services to the Longhorns.

The brothers announced their commitments as part of Keller's spring game.

The No. 45 defensive end in the country for 2014, Sione Teuhema is rated as a three-star prospect on Scout.com. Recently measured at the Dallas NFTC camp at 6-foot-3 and 211 pounds, Teuhema runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.6-second range. Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Powers singled out Teuhema after the NFTC camp, naming him to his Dallas NFTC All-Sleeper Defense team, while mentioning Teuhema's frame and ability to add weight.

"Look for his recruiting to continue to pick up, on the thin side now, but has a great frame and will get bigger over time," Powers wrote.

But while Sione is a catch in his own right — he chose Texas over BCS offers from Baylor, Iowa, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, TCU, Utah and Washington State — Tristan Teuhema might be an even bigger catch.

Tristan, also known as "Maea", is one of the state's top offensive linemen for 2015, and likely the state's top offensive tackle. He measured in at 6-4.5 and 348 pounds at Dallas NFTC, and drew the eye of Midlands Recruiting Analyst Ahmard Vital.

"Still somewhat of a raw prospect and extremely big (pound-for-pound maybe the biggest on hand), but a good spring and more competitions like this one and Teuhema will be a force to be reckoned with," Vital said.

Tristan did have a big spring for Keller, showing off his prowess as a dominant run blocker. That earned him offers from Iowa, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, TCU, Texas A&M, Utah, and Washington State.

But in the end, both brothers picked the Longhorns. Sione becomes Texas's 14th commitment for the 2014 class, including the third defensive end. Tristan is the Longhorns' fourth pledge for 2015, and is the second offensive lineman committed to Texas in that class.
