Head Coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are about to embark on an epic journey to NSD. Over the next 24 days, Texas fans will see numerous high school football players make their pledge to join the Longhorn Nation. Texas will sign somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-14 more players for the class of 2016.
January 16th, 2016 could be a monumental official visit weekend for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. Texas could host as many as 18-20 recruits combined with official, unofficial visits and early enrolle players. The next player tentatively scheduled for the 16th is three-star defensive end Malcolm Roach.
Malcolm Roach checks in at 6-foot-3, 250-pounds from Baton Rouge (LA) Madison Preparatory Academy. He is my pick for “Gem of the Class,” 2016. Roach can play multiple positions from defensive end, middle or outside linebacker. He is at his best coming off the edge and getting into the backfield. I like his athletic ability, first step, aggressiveness and football IQ. I believe Malcolm Roach is the Diamond in the Rough in 2016 for the Texas Longhorns.
