HOUSTON – If Mack Brown is serious about recommitting the Longhorns to the running game, he'll be happy with Sedrick Flowers.
The 6-foot-3, 290-pound senior guard for Galena Park North Shore High is expected to join Texas next season. Brown, the Texas coach, has indicated he'd like to have a more bruising, time-chewing running game this season after enjoying Colt McCoy's services at quarterback the past couple of seasons.
Flowers and his coach did not return calls seeking comment after he was named to The Associated Press list of Super 100 recruits. But he comes from a program accustomed to winning: The Mustangs were 113-13 from 2000-2009, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Flowers is one of seven starters back on offense this season, a year after going 8-4 — just one disappointment in a season that saw the school's state record 78-game regular season winning streak snapped
North Shore opened the season with a 44-6 loss to another Houston-area power, Katy. It was the Mustangs' worst loss since 2004 and they managed just 186 total yards, according to the Chronicle.
