2) Adrian Colbert — Seem high? The Longhorns need quality speed at safety, and Colbert brings just that.
3) Cayleb Jones — The gift you just had to have. From Austin. At a need position. And a great, great talent.
4) Johnathan Gray — Arguably the best player in the state, he fits the needs of the running game like a glove.
6) Malcom Brown — The state's top defensive tackle was a must get. Especially since he seems to fit the seek-and-destroy nature of Manny Diaz's defense.
8) Kendall Sanders — Sanders might not be the best pure receiver of the bunch, but his speed, and the way he projects to defense if he's moved, merits a high spot.
10) Bryson Echols — I'm higher on Echols than many are. But he's a technician and a competitor, just the way Texas likes its cornerbacks.
11) Camrhon Hughes — Hughes gets the nod here for his early enrollment. He's like a present on Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day. And that extra spring will give the developing Hughes, who has a nice motor, a chance to impress the Longhorn coaches.
13) Orlando Thomas — A versatile athlete who could project to a number of positions. His ceiling might be highest as a cornerback, though it'll be tough to keep the ball out of his hands.
14) Alex De La Torre — He's rated this high because of his versatility, his heady play and the fact that he's underrated athletically.
15) Timothy Cole — A downhill linebacker for a downhill scheme. Cole could be a great fit in the Texas defense, especially since he can be a devastating blitzer.
16) Caleb Bluiett — Is he a linebacker? A defensive end? Potentially a tight end or fullback? Yes. Bluiett played some defensive tackle last year, then moved out to middle linebacker this season. Great size/speed athlete.
17) Hassan Ridgeway — Ridgeway's size almost makes him a defensive tackle prospect, but he can still move like an end. When he's geared up to go, he's awfully tough to stop.
19) Nick Jordan — It can be difficult to project kickers, but Jordan has all the makings of an excellent one.
20) Brandon Moore — Moore should make an immediate impact with Kheeston Randall's graduation. But the emergence of other tackles this year makes him a luxury. A great one to have.
21) Marcus Johnson — Johnson is awfully exciting as an outside receiver, but could find his road to playing time blocked for a couple years.
22) Paul Boyette — Boyette has excellent potential, but might not see time for a few years. He has the frame to play a bigger end spot if needed.
23) Alex Norman — Norman is an exciting tackle prospect because of the way he gets into the backfield.
24) Thomas Johnson — Ever unwrapped a gift you thought you might have to return? Rumors that Johnson could switch to a West Coast school significantly drop how exciting this pickup is at the moment.
25) Kevin Vaccaro — Consider Vaccaro like a car you get when you're 15. You can't really use it yet, but the potential for future fun is still there.
