Today was the start of the early signing period in men's basketball. Two Texas Longhorns commitments inked and faxed their national letters of intent. Meet your future Longhorns: Eric Davis, from Saginaw, Michigan, and Kerwin Roach, from Houston, Texas.

Here's the BC take:

Eric Davis

Kerwin Roach

Here's Texas head coach Rick Barnes on the backcourt duo:

"Our entire staff is pleased to welcome both Eric and Kerwin into our program," Barnes said. "We wanted to add to our overall skill level and playmaking in the backcourt, and we needed to add length and athleticism to our backcourt. We also wanted to improve our perimeter scoring and shooting. And we needed to make sure we found individuals with high character, toughness and confidence. We accomplished all of those with the additions of Eric and Kerwin."

"Eric will bring scoring, playmaking and competitiveness to our program," Barnes said. "He has a scoring mentality along with a skill set and basketball IQ that will allow him to also function as a primary ball handler. Eric has the reputation of being a true gym rat."

"Kerwin has the mindset and IQ of a point guard along with the athleticism and scoring ability to operate effectively on the wing," Barnes said. "He loves to compete and has a tremendous work ethic."
