Texas Football Recruiting Update: Two Top Prospects De-Commit

The Texas Longhorns have a pretty solid 2015 recruiting class put together, but a pair of high-profile de-commitments are putting a damper on Charlie Strong's incoming class.

On Saturday, 4-Star ATH Louis Brown de-committed after taking his official visit to Austin. Brown played wide receiver and linebacker in high school, and was looking like he'd transition to DE at Texas. Now, that won't happen, and Brown is back on the market. He was the #17 player in the state of Texas, according to 247.com.

Sunday, things got worse - 4-Star WR/DB Tim Irvin (pictured above, one of the so-called 'Florida Five') flipped from Texas to Auburn. Irvin had been visiting Auburn this weekend, and whatever he heard or saw there was apparently enough to get him to reconsider.

Texas still has the 12th-rated recruiting class this year (per 247), but they've fallen out of the top 10 after these moves. Worryingly, things could continue to get worse - 4-Star CB Davante Davis is also set to visit Auburn (he just visited Miami this weekend as well), and there are rumblings that he could also be wavering.

Texas currently has 21 hard commits heading into National Signing Day on February 4.
