If conference realignment is going to drastically change how many top recruits leave the state of Texas, it hasn't happened yet. Of the state's top 50 prospects for the 2013 class, 21 are currently committed to out-of-state programs.

Katy (Texas) Cinco Ranch running back Jamel James is back on the market. The ESPN 300 running back, who is ranked No. 22 in the nation at his position, is no longer committed to Notre Dame, according to his high school coach, Don Clayton.
