Big 12: Chevoski Collins

Critical positions in Big 12 recruiting 

September, 3, 2013

What’s the most critical position in the Big 12? It depends on who you talk to. In a conference that rides its offensive reputation, some coaches are hoping to land players that will help them score points, while others are looking for the prospects to prevent points.

As official visits become finalized and uncommitted players get closer to announcing their commitments, here is a look at some of the most critical positions in recruiting for the Big 12 teams.
Texas lost five previously committed players in its 2013 recruiting class, something that never used to be a problem for the Longhorns. But they'll finish with the Big 12's top class in 2013, featuring eight ESPN 300 signees.

Each of the following players have officially sent in their letters of intent, and here's who's heading to the 40 Acres.
It's a really small class for Texas with just 15 signees after signing 28 players a year ago and 22 and 25 the previous two seasons. But the Longhorns are sitting at No. 14 in our ESPN class rankings, down a spot from where they began the day.

Burnt Orange Breakdown Insider: Today's look at the Texas roster breaks down defensive back Josh Turner. He made some big plays on special teams in 2011 and could fight for more time in the secondary in 2012.

60 days, 60 stats Insider: No. 38 isn't pretty -- it's the margin of defeat in the Red River Rivalry. However, Texas is better equipped, on both sides of the ball, to give the Sooners a game.
