2014 Texas Recruiting: Fort Worth Running Back Daniel Gresham Commits

No strangers to finishing first and fastest on the recruiting trail, the University of Texas picked up a key 2014 commitment on Tuesday when Fort Worth All Saints HS running back Daniel Gresham committed to the Horns.

Gresham, originally from Kentucky and fielding offers from Michigan and Louisville, is a 5-11, 230lb. back who has split time at running back and fullback, and told reporters that Texas is offering a slot at both positions. Gresham announced on Tuesday, while friend and teammate Demetrius Knox, a highly rated offensive line prospect, elected to wait to announce his commitment. Gresham and Knox are thought to be a pair, meaning they're intent on playing at the same university. For his part, Gresham credited former 'Horns quarterback and current coach Major Applewhite:

"I loved it. Coach Applewhite was probably my favorite -- he's a real cool guy," said the All Saints product. "I didn't get a chance to meet coach Brown."

According to Burnt Orange Nation, Texas will likely still target another back in the class:

The other question is whether Texas is down recruiting at the running back position, with offers reportedly out to Las Vegas (NV) Bishop Gorman star Nathan Starks, an extreme longshot, and New Orleans (LA) St. Augustine superstar Leonard Fournette, an even greater longshot. Time will tell there.
