National signing day is two weeks away, but two Texas recruits have already enrolled in school and a third is expected to enroll soon.
A Texas spokesman confirmed that tight end Blake Whiteley, a transfer from Arizona Western College, and Tampa (Fla.) Plant linebacker Andrew Beck have already enrolled and will participate in spring drills.
A third recruit, offensive guard Alex Anderson from New Orleans, has signed a scholarship offer and is expected to enroll soon.
Anderson (6-foot-3, 300 pounds) first committed to Arizona State in late July. However, he flipped his commitment to Texas earlier this week after a weekend visit with new offensive coordinator Joe Wickline and head coach Charlie Strong.
Wickline had previously recruited Anderson while the assistant coach worked at Oklahoma State.
“I had a great visit,” Anderson told 247sports.com. “Texas is a very nice place and I like the coaches there a lot. They gave me a lot to think after.”
Texas currently has 22 players committed for the 2014 recruiting class. All oral commitments are non-binding. Most of the perceived headliners in the recruiting class will not sign their national letter of intent until Feb. 5.
