Four-star running back Derrian Brown announced his commitment to the Texas Longhorns on Sunday, just hours after the program secured a statement victory over Southern Cal, 37-14.
He is the 16th member of coach Tom Herman’s 2019 class, and fulfills a need at running back – the only position that yet to add a commitment.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Buford, Ga. native chose the Longhorns over more than two dozen programs including Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Wisconsin and Penn State. Browns said recently that he had narrowed his final two choices to the Longhorns and the Nittany Lions.

Brown was rated as one of the top 15 running backs in the country by 247Sports.com, and was the top-rated uncommitted senior out of the state of Georgia. He was in attendance for Saturday night’s victory as part of his official visit to Austin, and Brown is one of the biggest commitments for Herman.
The Longhorns are also still in the mix for other running backs, including Noah Cain and Trey Sanders, while Katy, Texas prospect Deondrick Glass has also received an offer from Texas.
