Van linebacker Dalton Santos has committed to Texas per his father via text message. "He's fired up to be a Longhorn," his dad said.
Hookem247 and David Smoak are both reporting Santos flipped to Texas today.
Oh yea...Like this guy. High motor and will contribute at whatever position Diaz let's him loose.
His recruitment epitomizes the new recruiting approach. He looked like a great SEC/B1G prospect in February 2011, but a fringe Big 12 one. The old staff never contacted him. Diaz apologized for not recruiting him, kept up relations, and if he exploded his senior year or in all star games we could make a move late. He did and we did.
According to ESPN, Santos was Tennessee's highest rated recruit.
hell of a senior campaignDavid Smoak @DavidSmoak
Santos is a LB from Van High School, 6-3, 248, 4.6, 101-Tackles, 19-TFL, 3-Sacks, 1-Int, 3-CF, 3FR and one for TD.
welcome. he is perfect for what diaz is putting together
love this staffs recruiting approach.
It's a great number with a great history, worn by the legendary Reese Bennett in high school.
Today= Dia de los Santos.
Ha-ha.Personally, I think the guy is a douschebag. He stated over and over again he's all Vol, and that he can't wait to get to Tennessee and knock heads. I think he has character issues and I hope he rides the pine at Texas for 4 years.
I know someone will take a shot at for me saying that...but it's my opinion and I have thought it all along.
On another note, I live in Texas and I hate these MF'ing redneck Texas fans!!
his highlights are impressive. He looks like he has LB instincts like Britt Hager, but with prototypical MLB size and speed. I have a feeling he'll be productive whatever position he winds up on the defensive side of the ball.
Any chance he moves to fullback? Seems like he could blow some stuff up there for our stable of RBs.
From the 'Cosm: "Kid's violent and a great get."
Or, to put it another way: "He likes to eat liver. Human liver."
I love this kid! If you've never heard him talk listen to the kid do various interviews on youtube. Has great confidence and humble at the same time. GREAT KID!
Wow! Great twist. If only DGB would sign, we're set for life. Except QB, of course.
Get rid of some of the baby fat and I'm hopeful he stays a MLB.
