As we mentioned on Saturday when we told you about Daje Johnson committing to Texas this weekend, switching his commitment from TCU, he might not be the only recruit to have a change of heart in Austin this weekend. Turns out, he wasn't.
Linebacker Dalton Santos, who had originally committed to Tennessee, changed his commitment to Texas on Sunday--going from one UT to another.
"He committed to Texas this morning and he's fired up to be a Longhorn," Dalton's father, Albert Santos, told Orangebloods.com.
An Under Armour All-American, Santos is a 6-foot-3, 252 pound linebacker out of Van, Texas. He was considered one of the best linebacker prospects in the state of Texas this season. Tom Lemming of MaxPreps called Santos "one of the more physical defensive players in the state, he's very athletic with good tools, he will come right at you on every play, and never backs down."
Santos is the 26th member of Texas' 2012 class.
