09:23 AM ET 06.02 | Sione and Maea Teuhema have an unbreakable bond so it comes as no surprise that the brothers decided they wanted to play at the next level together. After Keller's spring game on Thursday night, the two siblings made it official by committing to Texas. "I was just playing the guitar and [Maea] walks in the room and was like, 'You know what, I want to be a Longhorn,'" Sione told Scout.com. "I was like alright then. That was easy.'" "I'd known for a while, and I was just thinking about it that night," Maea noted. "I just decided that was it." Sione is a three-star defensive end, who stands at 6-foot-3, 211-pounds while Maea is a 6-foot-5, 355-pound 2015 offensive linemen. Both recruits held multiple BCS offers.

Definitely a nice get on OL. His brother, we'll see. Hazard of 'package deal guys'.

Yeah Maea is a beast!

OL is the position Mack/Searles needs to stay focused on. It has taken 3 years of focused recruiting to build up to a 2 deep roster at OL.

We've got plenty of skill/speed position players in the state but you can really miss an eval on linemen so it pays to have plenty of them.

Mac Brown is a great recruiter but not a very good game day coach. He should concentrate on finding some better assistant coaches to overcome this.

I'm not sure who "Mac" Brown is, but if you are referring to the Texas head coach (his name is Mack), then he's no different than the vast majority of head coaches at this level. He does very little, if any, game day coaching. They're there to hire the rest of the staff, schmooze recruits and their families (most importantly, the Mamas) and raise money for the program. The assistants do all the "coaching", game day and otherwise. So yeah, he likely does need to hire some better assistants, or hope that the ones he has steps up their game.

Jeez, that pic has gotta go. I thought somebody had let the air out of Jabba for a second.
