Will anyone catch the University of Texas this year in the Scout.com team recruiting rankings? Currently the Longhorns are sitting on two dozen commitments and the top-ranked recruiting class in the nation as we enter the final weeks of the recruiting year.
The Longhorns amazingly had 20 commitments by mid-June. The headliners include defensive ends Eddie Jones (Kilgore, Texas) and Brian Ellis (Grand Prairie, Texas), linebackers Sergio Kindle (Dallas, Texas) and Dustin Earnest (Texarkana, Texas), running back Vondrell McGee (Longview, Texas), cornerbacks Ken Beasley (Orange, Texas) and Chykie Brown (Galena Park, Texas), offensive tackle Ja'Marcus Webb (Mesquite, Texas), defensive tackle Lamarr Houston (Colorado Springs, Co.), wide receivers Phillip Payne (Garland, Texas) and Montre Webber (Hearne, Texas), and quarterback Sherrod Harris (Arlington, Texas). All of these prospects are ranked in the top 20 in their respective positions. This class got even better with the addition of Jevan Snead (Stepehville, Texas). Snead, the Scout.com No. 8 quarterback, had previously been committed to Florida. This is a super group headed to Austin and it's well balanced as well.
