Tim Irvin Commits to Longhorns

Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns staff continue to amaze on the recruiting trail. All the hard work is starting to pay major dividends as another four-star player has decided to join the Longhorns.

Four-star defensive back Tim Irvin (Miami, Fla./Westminster Christian) became the second Florida prospect to commit to the Longhorns at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, joining four-star tight end Devonaire Clarington.

Texas won this battle by the hair on Bevo's chin as they were locked in an intense recruiting battle with Auburn as well as Florida, Miami and West Virginia.

Irvin also held offers from Arkansas, Florida State, LSU, Georgia, Michigan State and Mississippi State to name a few.

The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Irvin has a great feel for the game of football. He has great anticipation, quickness out of breaks and great change of direction. These are all traits you want to see out of your defensive back.

Most people have him pegged for the corner position, and is ranked accordingly. But I believe his biggest upside is at the safety position. He reminds me of Ahmad Black; a former Florida Gator safety that was the leader of the defense on a field chalked full of NFL talent.

Charlie Strong and staff have made the state of Florida a big priority, and it shows. Strong and company will continue to recruit the state's biggest players moving forward, and they will land them.

Scout.com Take:

Irvin's family tree is littered with terrific football players, and he appears to be next in line. A threat on both sides of the football, most have Irvin pegged for the defensive backfield. He possesses all the athletic traits you would want, and his instincts have him always around the ball. Irvin has been one of the most productive players in one of the most competitive states for high school football.
