Longhorns Get First 2008 Commit

The Longhorns have already received their first verbal commitment of the 2008 recruiting class. The Gilmer Buckeyes are loaded with talent and one of their juniors will be joining former teammates G.J. Kinne and Curtis Brown at Texas in 2008. That is, if Mack Brown makes his offer official when the standout arrives in Austin...

David Snow, one of the top offensive linemen in Texas, said that when he comes to Austin for a Longhorns' Junior Day, he will accept immediately if Texas head coach Mack Brown offers him.

"The education that I will get a Texas is second to none," said Snow. "Plus they have some great down lineman at Texas and I will get some serious competition from them every week."

Brown doesn't typically offer a player until he's met them in person and many of his official offers are made during the Junior Days in Austin. Snow is one of the best players in the state and definitely the caliber of player required to get an offer from Texas. If the meeting goes well, Snow will likely receive an offer.

Gilmer head coach Jeff Traylor said that Snow is a quality individual both on and off the field.

"He's in the National Honor Society. He's smart. He works hard. He just the hardest working kid and he's worked his way into the position he is in," said Traylor.

If Snow does come to Texas, he'll join former Gilmer teammates QB G.J. Kinne and CB Curtis Brown, both 2007 Texas commits.

Along with Snow, there is another pair of impressive 2008 prospects on the Gilmer HS roster. WR Lamar Harris and RB Justin Johnson have also been drawing attention from the top D-I programs.
