Hint on starting safeties?
Thompson not listed @ all & Diggs listed @ CB...interesting
Last night, Rod Babers did a great break down of the Texas DBs with Jeff and myself on the podcast. We talked DBs for about 23 minutes starting around the 8-minute mark. There should be some good competition. Rod also shared the main reason why he thinks Texas defensive backs have always been so successful during the Mack Brown era.
The link to article with the show content is below. The link to podcast is at the bottom of the article.
In this week defensive backfield, take a hard look at 2014 recruiting and talk a little Longhorn basketball.
From the way Akina talks, Diggs will get a chance at safety. If he can't find a suitable CB, then he may have to move back to CB.. Just pray someone steps up at CB.
Brenhams next star Darrion Johnson Class of 2014
It's a workout award. No surprise Colbert is in there based on what I've been told.

Duke Thomas is solid.
Dude's nickname will be Grinder by the time he graduates.
He's one of the few reasons I'm optimistic about a slight defensive rebound.
Don't sleep on Antwuan Davis. He will be ready to contribute from day one.
Colbert has some elite gifts imo.
I hope Colbert has an impact this season. His speed and size is pretty amazing.

Seeing as how Diggs, Vacarro, and Michael Huff are all following him, I'm going to guess he's the real deal.
Must not have been any tackling in the competition if Phillips was one of the top DBs.
Akina still no clue. why is Diggs at CB not safety
Give it a rest man. Shit is getting way too repetitive.
This really really excites me. Feel like he has the athleticism and size to be close to Vaccaro.
Several reasons...he is our best cb, his position at next level is cb and despite what most on this site think, cb is the more important position.
Of all the coaches on staff Akina is the one i wont question.
The SEC of signatures....
really? no clue because Diggs was at CB in a drill?
