Texas missed out late on a couple prospects, but managed to maintain a high ranking by holding onto their other 22 commitments, including four players rated five-stars prospects by Scout.com. The depth of the class is also impressive, with Texas landing a total of 15 players ranked four stars or higher. That depth actually allowed the Longhorns to boast the highest average star rating of any class in the country.
Texas fixed weaknesses at defensive back and on the offensive line by signing five players apiece. That made up the bulk of the class, though the Longhorns took one player at each spot with the exception of a special teamer.
Of the 22 signees, 21 hail from the Lone Star State. The exception is cornerback Josh Turner, the top player in Oklahoma this season.
The Longhorns still have a couple of scholarships left, so the possibility exists that they could still add a player or two to the 2011 class.
