Coach Hazell's First 2014 Commit

Mike Carmin of the Lafayette J&C reports that Darrell Hazell's 2014 recruiting class has its first commitment, WR Trae Hart out of Texas.

Hart is going to be a senior in HS this fall. He's 5'9" and 154 lbs right now and Yahoo reports his 40 time at 4.4. Nothing wrong with speed at the wideout position.

B-dowd has pointed out in the past that one way to assess recruits (beyond star ratings, for whatever they're worth) is to take a look at their other offers. Hart's other interested suitors, to this point, were SMU, Tulas, Rice, Baylor and Texas State.

High school stats are often hard to judge, but as a junior this past season, Hart had over 2,000 receiving yards on 108 catches, along with 29 touchdowns. I'm guessing he's elusive.

Hart is a "solid verbal" at this point, obviously, since he has another year of HS to go, but congrats to Coach Hazell (and Coach Shoop) on their first 2014 recruit.
