Looks like the past two so-so seasons are giving kids pause in Texas as far as the Longhorns go....usually they do quite well on Jr Day as far as commits go....interesting stuff....

You wonder if A&M now in the SEC is not going to attract more kids to want to play in that league and hurt the Longhorns recruiting too....

They have opened slowly with the 2013 group.

Both are unfamiliar and might be unsettling paths for Texas. But the paths, well worn by most other programs, are ones Texas might want to get used to as recruits it used to quickly lock up become more accustomed to waiting and weighing their options.

Sure the Coach February moniker still has some cache. Jake Raulerson (Celina, Texas/Celina) committed Feb. 3, just two days after 2012 class was inked.

But the commitment of the top linemen in Texas did not bring with it a wave of commitments from other players. At least 10 offers went out during Texas' junior day Sunday and not a one was returned with a yes.
Then there were the players who didn't even show for one reason or another -- Kent Perkins (Dallas/Lake Highlands), James White (Pearland, Texas/Dawson), Vincent Taylor (San Antonio/Madison) and D.J. Ward (Lawton, Okla./Lawton).
