PLANO, Texas -- Defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat is going to be a Texas Longhorn. So is linebacker Jordan Hicks.

Jeffcoat, the nation's No. 2 recruit on the ESPNU 150 rankings, ended the suspense Friday morning with an announcement in the Plano West High School gymnasium in front of a cheering student body. He said he finally came to the decision only days ago.

"It's definitely a relief," Jeffcoat said. "There's been a lot of speculation. People think they knew what I was thinking. No one knew what I was thinking except my family."

Texas' recruiting coup didn't stop there. The Longhorns also received a commitment Friday afternoon from Hicks, the nation's No. 4 recruit out of Lakota West High School in West Chester, Ohio.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Hicks, the nation's top-ranked outside linebacker, chose Texas over Ohio State and Florida. He recorded 80 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions during his senior season. It is the first time that Longhorns coach Mack Brown has attracted a player out of Ohio.

Great news for UT! I am really happy that Jeffcoat is going to Texas. And adding Hicks is also huge.

The first time I saw a picture of the running back kid, Traylon Snead from almost deep east Texas, Cayuga....I thought, they're going to move that 6-2, 215# 4.50 thingy too that monster hybrid linebacker that they play. But they say their not. They must think he's got a shot to be Erick Dickerson. The Aggs had a pretty good class. But this is just sick. Hook'em, the Long horns ,they're looooooooaded.
