Texas' second big Junior Day appears to be much more successful than the first, resulting in a third of the Longhorns' 2013 commitments on Sunday. The last of the trio to flash a 'Hook'em' sign and pledge to the program was Lancaster (Texas) defensive end Daeshon Hall.
"I thought I could fit in with coach (Oscar) Giles and coach (Mack) Brown," Hall told Orangebloods.com. "My mom was excited. I called my dad and my uncles and we talked about it. The tradition and the coaching staff makes it a win-win. Plus, I think I can help them win another national championship."
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound end held offers from Baylor, Texas A&M, TCU and others. He nearly missed Texas' Junior Day but arrived late and was able to take in everything he needed to know in order to make the decision to commit.
"I had practice early after a playoff win," Hall said. "I just decided that I can't miss this Junior Day, I have to go. I told my mom and we called coach (Bruce) Chambers and he said it was cool that we came late. I had a good time."
Texas is now up to nine commitments for the class of 2013. Hall racked up 60 tackles and 11 sacks last season as a junior.
