Current Commit Update: Brian Orakpo

Caught up recently with <b>Brian Orakpo</b> to get his thoughts on the defensive coaching situation at UT and the status of his verbal commitment.<p>

Orakpo, who originally verballed to the Horns back in early June, summed it up with this: "I am 100% committed to the University of Texas."

Asked about the resignation of Carl Reese and other possible coaching changes on the defensive side of the ball, he further stated: "I have been out of town for the last month and just learned of the resignation. I'll just have to see if it has any effect."

Asked if in any other schools have recently been in contact, the reply was, "No. Not yet, anyway."

Clearly, the Houston Lamar standout was taken by surprise regarding the events that took place last week on the Forty Acres, but his opening comment suggests that it will take far more than a change at the DC position to cause some second-guessing on his part...
