Texas head coach Charlie Strong wants more East Texans on roster

Posted: Updated:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Between Dez Bryant, Adrian Peterson, Trent Williams, and the list goes on and on, its obvious East Texas is home to some of the best football players in the country.

Texas head coach Charlie Strong realizes the Longhorns need to take better advantage of the talent pool.

While in town on Thursday night for his "Comin' on Strong Tour", coach Strong said there could and should be more East Texans on the Longhorns roster.

"Its an unbelievable region and the thing you like when you get a player out of this region is just how hard they are going to work when you get them at your program," Strong said. "They are only going to get better and better. It's an area we need to dip into and dip into a little better than what we are doing."
