Texas added a big offensive lineman to their 2013 recruiting class, according to a report.
The Texas Longhorns continued a solid weekend of recruiting by adding offensive lineman Kent Perkins of Lake Highlands in Dallas, Orangebloods.com reports. Perkins is rated a four-star by most services, standing 6-foot, 5-inches and weighing 300 pounds. He's also claimed offers from SEC schools Arkansas, LSU and Texas A&M, along with Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Texas A&M! SEC school!

Perkins visited Texas' Junior Day over the weekend. He becomes the 10th commit in Mack Brown's 2013 class, joining fellow four-star offensive lineman Jake Raulerson. There may be some concern over Perkins not being named Jake or some derivation thereof, as only 30 percent of the Horns' class now features any significant Jakeishness.
Here's video of Perkins in action:
