Espinosa's switch from tackle to center going well

As spring practice and classes come to a close, recruits will now enter the all-important summer off-season. Players have the opportunity to focus on getting better individually and have a chance to showcase their skills at summer camps.

Summer is no time for a recruit to kick back and take it easy, and current 2010 UT commit and Rivals 100 member Dominic Espinosa is not one who will be sitting pool side all day relaxing with his buddies.

"[Spring] went real well," Espinosa said as his team had just finished its final scrimmage before summer. "I had to change positions from tackle to center and I've never had to do that before. But it is going very well so far and I am excited about our team."

Dom, who reports he currently weighs in at 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds, has a tough and busy summer ahead of him as he continues his transition to the center position, and he will also head to camp at UT on June 7th. He is eager to continue to develop his relationship with the Texas coaches.
