“In his previous role, Carrington was tasked with making sure on-campus visits ran smoothly, identifying prospects, and
helping the staff with general day-to-day recruiting duties,” EJ Holland of 247Sports said. “Per a source, Carrington will
continue to be a jack-of-all-trades in the recruiting office with more responsibilities.”
A key figure for for Texas when recruits visit the Forty Acres, Carrington earned a temporary promotion as Texas’ 10th
assistant towards the end of the 2018 cycle, prior to Tom Herman hiring Herb Hand as the co-offensive coordinator and offensive
line coach. Although Carrington didn’t remain in that assistant role after a brief stint on the recruiting trail, Tom Herman
praised Carrington and the value he brings on National Signing Day after Texas signed the nation’s No. 3-ranked class.
“Bryan does a fantastic job of connecting with players,” Herman said. “He’s young. He shares similar backgrounds to a lot
of them. Grew up in Houston. He is passionate about the University of Texas. I think where Bryan comes into play is because
of that connection, I think it adds a lot of validity to the things that we’re saying to the full-time recruiters. We’re saying
it and we’re presenting information, then Bryan is saying, Yeah, man, that’s the real deal, that’s really how it is here.
Herman then added, “Bryan does a phenomenal job. I hope he sticks around for a long, long time.”
For Texas to keep the ace recruiter on board after he played a significant role in landing a trio of defensive prospects
in Daniel Carson, Moro Ojomo, and Joseph Ossai, who even gave Carrington a shoutout in his commitment video, it was clear
a promotion would be required.
After making approximately $36,000 last year, the work Carrington put in throughout the past 12 months and helping construct
what became the nation’s No. 3-ranked recruiting class earned him that well-deserved promotion.
By showing Carrington the money and the promotion, the ‘Horns should reap the rewards by Carrington showing Texas more
signatures from high-level prospects in his new role.
