Texas Longhorns Football Recruiting: 2015 Navarro JUCO DE Quincy Vasser Commits To Texas Longhorns

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The former Georgia commitment is the 20th pick-up for Charlie Strong's 2015 class.  Vasser will enroll in time for Spring ball and have two years of eligibility remaining.  Vasser was a 2012 recruit coming out of high school, so he should be physically ready to play now - particularly after a full off season with Pat Moorer.

Vasser will fight to replace Cedric Reed at the SDE position and should have enough size and strength to man a 3 man DL when Texas goes to its preferred 3-3-5 on passing downs.  An academic non-qualifier coming out of high school and after a year of prep school, he'll need to keep his books in order.  His maturity should allow him to contribute early at a position where the Longhorn currently lack options.  While Vasser may not have much ceiling left to explore, Strong likely grabbed him because of a reliable floor.
