Texas Brings in Another Top Class; Big DFW Impact on UT's Class and Across College Football

Signing Day is like Christmas Day and every other holiday wrapped into one for college football fans. Hope springs eternal for all fans across the country and no college football coach is going to disparage their class regardless of who they ended up signing. Florida finished with the consensus number one class. The Longhorns were not too far behind. I am going recap my top 5 impact players from this class based on need and position.

Darius White - WR - Fort Worth, TX (Dubar)

The 6-2 and 205 pound receiever was the top receiver in the state and adding his playmaking ability will help the offense right away.

Jackson Jeffcoat - DE - Plano, TX (West)

Jim Jeffcoat's son is one of the top defensive linemen in the country.

Tevin Jackson - LB - Garland, TX

Any kid smart enough to wear a Rangers hat is good by me.

Traylon Shead - RB - Cayuga, TX

Class A Running back grew up in a town of a couple thousand. He will play in front of a few more fans than that when he suits up for the Longhorns.

Next Texas Coach and more UT Recruiting Dominance

The Rise of Muschamp is Upon You

UT finishes this recruiting season with an uncharacteristic (most recruits are usually locked this close to signing day) bang.  Plano West's own and former Cowboy great Jim Jeffcoat's son Jackson Jeffcoat committed to the Longhorns last week and many consider him the top prep defensive linemen in the country.

And if that wasn't enough Will Muschamp secured the top prep Linebacker in the country not from Texas but from Ohio.  Landing Jordan Hicks with Ohio St. and Florida after him was a true recruiting coup for this already ultra-talented class.  This class does show the embarrassment of riches Mack Brown and his coaching staff have at their disposal.   I am headed to the UT recruiting luncheon on Thursday the day after signing day so look forward to seeing this class more closely on film.  I will try to post commentary...
