Brenham Pipeline?

There is something in the water in Brenham, Texas, and the Longhorns have taken full advantage over the last few years. The pipeline started with star wide receiver Limas Sweed. Since then, Texas has picked up commitments from Brandon Collins, Ahmard Howard, Luke Poehlmann and Ryan Roberson. Poehlmann talked about his commitment to Texas and the stars in the class of '09.

Is Luke Poehlmann still drawing interest from other schools?

"Right after I committed, there were some schools that were still contacting me, but it's pretty much calmed down now. I still get mail and everything, but it's just me and Texas right now," Poehlmann said.

Poehlmann is planning on attending summer camp in Austin on June 10th. With the recent announcements that Roy Watts and J'Marcus Webb would transfer, Texas will likely have some depth issues on the offensive line next year. Poehlmann addressed the issue of possibly getting some early playing time or choosing to redshirt during his first season at Texas.

"I really don't know," Poehlmann said. "I wouldn't mind playing as a freshman. I guess it all depends on how I come in my freshman year."

Poehlmann is extremely excited about what Brenham is bringing back for his senior season. Spring practice went very well for the Cubs and Poehlmann has set a goal to cap off his career with a state title.

"It went pretty good. Everyone is stronger and faster this year," Poehlmann replied when asked about spring practice. "I'm really excited. I want us to win state."

The Texas coaches have taken notice to the great amount of talent the Brenham produces year after year. The class of 2009 is headlined by two athletes that can absolutely fly down the field.

"I know there is some definite D-I potential," Poehlmann said. "We have two brothers, (WR/DBs) Kendrick and Kendrell Washington. They are starting to buff up and put on muscle. They both run like a 4.2 forty. They are just athletes. They are track stars that are just starting to put on muscle."
