Espinosa Still on Cloud Nine

Cedar Park offensive lineman made no bones about his desire to play for the Texas Longhorns. A little over two weeks ago, he got his chance when Mack Brown offered the 6-3, 275-pound lineman, and he jumped at his chance to commit. Burnt Orange Beat spoke with Espinosa after his offseason workout last week and files this report.

When the University of Texas offered Dominic Espinosa a football scholarship, Espinosa didn't need a line call to know he was ready to fire off the ball. The junior left tackle committed to Texas at last month's Junior Day.

"I definitely feel great about it. I am pretty excited to get it (recruiting) over with and am excited to going somewhere I really wanted to go," Espinosa explained after one of his three daily workouts.

Espinosa, who is a natural leader on the field and in the weight room, has been working even harder this offseason as he is moving to center as a senior where he will likely be used as a Longhorn. Espinosa is also throwing the discus this track season.

"I am definitely working hard (this offseason) on my transition from tackle to center. I want to be able to play all five positions on the line. I have been hitting the weight room really hard with a sense of urgency since I committed there," Espinosa said.

Espinosa said that he plans on returning to the Forty Acres on March 28 for the Texas scrimmage the weekend before the Spring Game along with all of the other 2009 signees and 2010 verbal commitments.

Scout has just posted new highlight videos from Dominic's junior season.
