DeSoto (Texas) defensive tackle Bryce English committed to Mack Brown and the Texas Longhorns in the spring of 2013. He was one of the first commitments of the Longhorns 2015 recruiting class, and the first defensive lineman to commit.
Just over a year later and a change at the top of the Texas program, he decided it was time to re-open his recruiting process.
"Basically I really didn't feel comfortable with the coaching staff and I just wanted to look around and see what the other schools had to offer," English said. "I really wasn't communicating with Texas so I decided to decommit."
The 5-foot-11, 320-pound defensive standout currently holds an offer from Iowa, but he has also been receiving interest from Notre Dame, TCU, Baylor, Auburn, and LSU.
He does not have any summer camps on his schedule at this point, but he does have one visit already planned.
"Yeah, TCU May 3," English said. "That's all right now."
He would like to make a few more visits though.
"Well Notre Dame, LSU, Auburn, and Iowa, and basically some of those SEC schools," English said.
As for a timetable on another decision, English is in no hurry. He has spring drills coming up and he is ready to see how it all plays out.
"Right now I'm really undecided," English said. "I'm just waiting to see who else offers and sit down and look who I feel is the best fit for me."
English has been a two year starter for the DeSoto Eagles and earned 7-5A co-Defensive MVP in 2013 and 7-5A co-Defensive Sophomore of the Year in 2012. As a junior he recorded 71 tackles and 5.5 sacks and helped DeSoto to the 5A Division I Semifinals for the second straight season.
