The Longhorns football program picked up a commitment Monday night from one of the state’s top defenders in the 2014 recruiting class — Otero Alaka, a rangy linebacker from Houston Cypress Falls.
In picking Texas over Texas A&M, Alaka becomes the Longhorns’ 12th official pledge for next year. He ranks 21st on the American-Statesman’s Fabulous 55 for 2014, as compiled by Hookem.com, the newspaper’s Internet partner. The 6-foot-3-inch, 210-pounder is rated as the No. 19 outside linebacker in the country in a composite average of the national recruiting sites.
