Once he made it in to Austin, he had a chance to talk to the UT coaches and visit the academic advisors before going to watch one of the Horns' spring practices. "After the practice I met with Mack Brown and his wife and some of the coaches and they offered me, but they wanted me to commit by Friday, because of the Arkansas ties," he said. "I went home and talked about it with my family and I decided to commit today."
Pianalto commented on the type of tight end he is: "You could say I'm more of a receiving TE, because we run four wide receiver sets, I was one of the wide receivers and I started last year along side Ben Cleveland (Arkansas signee), the other TE," he explained. "I think I'm good at blocking as well, though, but I didn't get that many chances to show off my blocking skills."
"UT is a great school. You can't go wrong," the Horns' 14th commitment for Signing Day '07 said about his future program. And to all Longhorn fans he said, "I'm glad to be a Longhorn."
