Charlie Strong, Texas Landed 2 Massive Commitments From Top Recruits This Morning

Christmas came early for Charlie Strong. 

Friday morning, the Texas coach received two commitments from two of the top recruits in the country. The Longhorns received pledges from Malik Jefferson, the No. 1 linebacker in the country and No. 13 player overall in 247 Sports' Composite Rankings, and DeAndre McNeal, a four-star athlete. Both players are from Texas, with Jefferson being the No. 1 player in the state. 

Texas A&M, which has been the go-to school for in-state recruits in recent years, was recruiting both players. Strong's ability to get them to come to Austin might be his biggest achievement yet as the Longhorns' coach.
