Texas has been moving quickly to secure to their class of 2013 and added another commitment on Tuesday but it was a depature from standard recruiting procedure for the Longhorns. Harker Heights (Texas) linebacker Naashon Hughes joins the orange and white's class of 2013 as the 11th commitment but will do so as a grayshirt at the moment.
"He did commit. He just talked to coach (Mack) Brown. Right now, he's considered to be offered a grayshirt," Harker Heights head coach Mike Mullins told Orangebloods.com. "From that standpoint, if something happens between now and then, he'll be right there (for an offer towards the 2013 class). Right now, he'll go through and graduate with his class. Then he'll be six month on his own of taking classes, then be first commitment next January for (the recruiting class of) 2014."
The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder held full scholarship offers from Baylor, LSU and South Carolina which makes the move an unsual one all things considered. Still, Hughes is a big Texas fan and appeared to be set on going to Austin even if it was via the road less traveled. His brother, Camrhon, was an early enrollee as part of the class of 2012 along the offensive line.
