Martellus Bennett, the nation's No. 1 tight end prospect, will switch from his early commitment to Miami to Mack Brown and Texas, according to reliable sources.

I talked to Martellus Bennett this weekend and although he did not confirm the switch, it looks like the decision has already been made. The announcement come soon or Martellus may wait to make the announcement at the U.S. Army All-American game.

Why the switch? Over the summer Martellus became very close to quarterback Ryan Perrilloux of Reserve (East St. John), La ., one of the nation's top three signal caller's and a Texas commit. Perrilloux, like all good quarterbacks should do, has been trying his best to make sure he has outstanding targets to throw to once he gets to Austin -- and there are few better than Mr. Bennett.
