HD Hot Board: 2015

Welcome to the HD Hot Board where we'll bring you an up-to-date look at where we think Texas stands with its targets.

Legend:

Committed

– Pretty self-explanatory

Scorching

– If he isn't committed already he could be soon

Heating up

– The Longhorns should feel good about where things stand

Lukewarm

– Developments are slow between the two sides, but interest remains

Cooling off

– At this point there isn't much hope

Freezing

– No chance of a commitment
