Outside of quarterback, edge rushers are the most important position in football. Steve Sarkisian had to bring a few names in to help Texas get to the quarterback this season, but those temporary patches could be gone come 2022.

That’s why Derrick Brown is one of the most important prospects on Texas’ board heading into the summer. The four-star edge out of Texarkana is one of the best pass rushers in the state.

Early Wednesday morning, Brown released his top eight schools. Texas was joined by Arizona State, Baylor, Florida State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas Tech.

Brown was on campus over the weekend for an official visit. He said Austin “felt like home” and will “definitely be back.” Texas Tech and Baylor are next on his visit list this summer, while Oklahoma is expected to host him the weekend of its Nebraska matchup.
