2013 Recruit Darius James Commits To Texas

The finely re-calibrated Texas recruiting machine rolls on with the Longhorns grabbing elite interior line prospect Darius James from Killeen's Harker Heights. CenTex will not be denied. He's widely considered the top ranked center prospect in the nation, a Top 100 national recruit, a Top 10 recruit in-state, and he's athletic enough to be a high level nose tackle recruit as well.


You only need to watch the first highlight to get why James is so coveted. And the fact that many of his other highlights feature him as an active NT is a VERY GOOD THING despite his future OL projection. Those are awfully sweet feet for a 300+ pound athlete. James is a gigantic interior OL presence with lateral mobility and feet good enough to win in zone blocking schemes and the hip flexion and strength to root out nose tackles straight up. At 6-5 with long arms and a stout base, good luck getting movement on your interior pass rush. Basically, he checks every possible box I want in an interior OL take.

Big-time get. Rejoice.
