Texas promotes Bryan Carrington to Director of Recruiting

Bryan Carrington thrived in his role as the Texas Longhorns Assistant Director of Player Personnel throughout the 2018 cycle.

So much so, that just days after LSU reportedly pushed for his services, the Longhorns have promoted Carrington to Director of Recruiting, per his Twitter profile and a report from 247Sports.

“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.
