Texas shores up secondary with two commitments

Texas has been moving aggressively to wrap up their 2012 recruiting class and added two defensive backs over the weekend in Brownwood (Texas) cornerback Kevin Vaccaro and Mineral Wells (Texas) safety Adrian Colbert, both committing to the Longhorns on Sunday.

Both players had flown under the radar for some but Texas coaches had kept tabs with both of them as they went through their senior seasons. The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Vaccaro is the younger brother of current Longhorn defensive back Kenny Vaccaro and held offers from Nevada and Wake Forest among others. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Colbert held several major BCS offers from schools and had been committed to Baylor but he quickly flipped to Texas after visiting Austin over the weekend.

The pair give the Longhorns 25 commitments for the class of 2012, at least four of which will wind up playing for secondary coach Duane Akina.
