Three for Three: Chance Mock Stayin' Put

<B>Mack Brown</B> and staff secured a clean sweep over the last five days with announcements from all three potential junior defectors that they intend to remain on the Forty Acres for their senior seasons. <B>Derrick Johnson</B> announced last Thursday, and the final word came Tuesday afternoon at Bellmont when, moments after <B>Cedric Benson</B> wrapped up comments about his decision to stay in school, a UT spokesman gave the word that <B>Chance Mock</B> also planned to return.

UT's junior QB released the following statement through the school:

"Four years ago I made a commitment to Texas and Coach Brown made a commitment to me to help me become the best player I could possibly be. I did briefly consider looking at other options, but the more I looked the more I realized that The University of Texas is the best place for me. I've made some of my best friends in the world here and I love everything about Texas Football, Austin and the state of Texas. I'm looking forward to another exciting season, graduating and getting my T-ring."

Mock's return keeps the Horns at three scholarship QBs heading into spring: Senior-to-be Mock, sophomore-to-be Vince Young and junior-to-be Matt Nordgren.
