Kevin Vaccaro Commits To Texas Longhorns

In an unlikely move, Texas offered Kevin Vaccaro a full scholarship last weekend. Vaccaro, whose older brother Kenny plays for Texas, accepted. Our Burnt Orange Nation has more:

A likely safety prospect at Texas, Vaccaro still has the hips and speed to play cornerback somewhere in college football, showing an impressive knack for arriving simultaneous with the football. If a Vaccaro hits you as the same time that the football gets there, you’re probably not catching the ball. Lil KV doesn’t have the size to be a machete, but he certainly qualifies as a bowie knife.

Given his height and the fact that he’s quicker in short areas than he is fast with the top-end speed to open up and make up ground against Big 12-level receivers, the odds are that Vaccaro will be a safety at Texas, likely projecting as a back up at that. It’s hard not to love his striking ability, it just comes in a two-star type of package.

(Note: this post has been edited to correct Kevin Vaccaro's name.)
