What's the reason behind this new trend? Scout analyst Jason Higdon gives his take.
"Offensive line coach Joe Wickline is one of the very best at coaching and identifying offensive line talent. While Texas will always look in state first, Wickline will leave the state in certain situations.
"With Toby Weathersby, Patrick Vahe, and Ronnie Major all coming from the state of Texas, do not be surprised to see the Longhorns turn the heat up with a few players from across the borders. Wickline is looking for the very best offensive linemen to round out this class and if it means leaving Texas to find them he will."
Here's a closer look at the talent that could potentially play in the trenches for the Horns.
High School: Woodbridge (VA) C.D. Hylton
Size: 6-foot-6, 285
Ranking: 4-Star (#8 overall)
Evaluation: "Burrell really fires off the football and is relentless at the point of attack. He is very strong and plays with good leverage. Along with his strength, Burrell is extremely athletic and gets to the second level of the defense with ease. He plays very hard and does a nice job finishing his blocks. Overall, he is special player and his best football is ahead of him," said regional recruiting analyst Michael Clark.
High School: Scottsdale (AZ) Chaparral
Size: 6-foot-6, 280
Ranking: 4-Star (#9 overall)
Evaluation: "If you can find a nastier player in the country I would be shocked. Walker plays the game how it is supposed to be played. He plays through the echo of the whistle and treats every rep like he is in a bar brawl. At times this has worked against him, he was thrown out of a few games in 2013. He will also sacrifice technique and throw players down, a move that will get him holding calls in college. Walker has size, a frame to get bigger, good feet and athletic ability. A four-star player that has multiple offers, and I am shocked he doesn't have more because he is that good. If he can continue to improve his technique, Walker has NFL ability," said regional recruiting analyst Jason Jewell.
High School: Oklahoma City (OK) Casady School
Size: 6-foot-3, 305
Ranking: 4-Star (#9 overall)
Commit status: Uncommitted. Was a longtime Oklahoma commit, but Wariboko just opened up his recruitment last week. Others he's considering include Texas, Texas A&M, Florida State, LSU, USC, Oregon State, with Oklahoma still in the mix.
Evaluation: "A powerful offensive guard prospect, who quite simply dominates the competition on the private school level. He has his way with defensive linemen, locking on and driving them all over the field. He has stepped up and performed well at camps and combines against top competition. He has quick feet and is massive. The combo allows him to be equally adept at pass and run blocking, making him a top shelf OG prospect," said national recruiting analyst Greg Powers.
High School: Gadsden (AL) Southside
Size: 6-foot-5.5, 314
Ranking: 4-Star (#18 overall)
High School: Cincinnati (OH) Winton Woods
Size: 6-foot-6, 253
Ranking: 3-Star (#41 overall)
Commit status: Uncommitted. Brown holds over 40 offers and is considering programs including Auburn, Georgia Tech, USC, UCLA, Stanford, California, Michigan State. He has been recruited by Charlie Strong since he was at Louisville and the offer carried over to Texas, with an official offer coming in January. He has said he hopes to visit the Longhorns.
High School: Baldwin City (KS) Baldwin
Size: 6-foot-6, 270
Ranking: 3-Star (#35 overall)
Commit status: Committed to Nebraska. Gaylord picked up the Texas offer after committing to Nebraska, but it is highly unlikely he will waver from his decision to play football in the Big Ten.
Evaluation: "On the field, Gaylord is a physical player with true tackle potential. He is light on his feet for a big man and has good size to go along with some power. He is solid at the point of attack, but his best attribute may be his ability to fire out quickly and secure blocks on linebackers on the second level. Almost looks like a basketball player by how well he positions himself in front of quicker players. Keeps his feet moving and finishes."
High School: Atlanta (GA) Mays
Size: 6-foot-3, 290
Ranking: 4-Star (#15 overall)
Commit status: Committed to Alabama. His older brother, Chance Warmack, is a Crimson Tide great and he has said that he is still "pretty strong" to Nick Saban and the team. Again, unlikely that Warmack will flip.
