5-Star Linebacker Steve Edmond: Should Texas Be Worried About Will Muschamp?
5-star linebacker Steve Edmond committed to Texas way back in February when the Longhorns were considered championship contenders and had their coaching staff fully intact.
10 months later, after a 5-7 season that marked the worst year of the Mack Brown Era, the coaching staff has seen significant changes and the future of one of the country's most stable powerhouses is very much up in the air.
Part of the Longhorns coaching casualties, defensive coordinator and Texas head coach-in-waiting, Will Muschamp.
Muschamp left Texas to become the new head coach at Florida after Urban Meyer stepped down earlier this month.
He brings a wealth of knowledge with him that should serve the Gators well. But that's not all he brings.
Muschamp has a direct line right into the heart of Texas' crop of star recruits, many of whom he personally recruited while with the Longhorns.
He was one of Edmond's primary recruiters and was mentioned specifically as a major driving force behind the 5-star linebacker's decision to commit to the Longhorns.
Now that Muschamp is at Florida and Texas looks like a shadow of it's former self from the time Edmond committed, it wouldn't be out of the question to assume the Gators could swoop in the for the kill.
Of course it seems doubtful Muschamp would step on any toes in Austin considering he left the program on good terms, but the recruiting world is it's own beast that can't very well be predicted.
A major decommitment from Texas' 2011 class could play right into Muschamp's hands. After all, he's one of the reasons some of these prospects came to Austin in the first place.
