According to ESPN.com, three of the top five Texas commits are on the defensive side of the ball. An already scary Longhorns defense could become even scarier.
While their offense slipped last season, the defense still held opponents to 23.7 points per game. Even with the loss of respected defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, the Longhorns are stacked with talent on the defensive side of the ball.
Now with the addition of cornerback Quandre Diggs, defensive tackle Desmond Jackson and linebacker Steve Edmond, the Longhorns hope to regain that top five defense of theirs.
Diggs is exceptionally quick and has shown big play ability throughout his high school career. He divided his time at running back, wide receiver and cornerback during high school, but will make the switch to a fulltime defensive player at college.
Jackson has shown an ability to break through the line and wreck havoc on opposing offenses, whether it be during running plays or passing downs. He already has a college-level build on him, so don't expect a radical increase in size.
Edmond has the ability to start at Texas from day one. The linebacker displayed the speed, balance and size throughout college to be a force at the college level. He is solid against both the run and the pass, making him an invaluable asset.
