Sherman offensive lineman Aaron Garza is no longer verbally committed to the University of Texas.


Garza tweeted on Monday that he has "officially de-committed" from the Longhorns. He is the second UT Class of 2015 pledge to change his mind since the resignation of Mack Brown and the hiring of Charlie Strong as head coach.


According to the Burnt Orange Nation website, Garza still holds offers from Auburn, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss and USC. The website suggested that new Longhorn offensive coordinator Joe Wickline was cooling on Garza’s offer.


The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Garza became Texas’ first 2015 recruiting class commitment last March while attending the university’s inaugural Sophomore Day on campus.


Garza was a second-team All-District 13-4A selection on the offensive line in 2012 and 2013 and a first-team Herald Democrat All-Texomaland member in 2013. He caught the attention of major college programs at football camps in 2012 despite not having played a down of varsity football before.
