Texas was as well represented as ever in the nation's biggest postseason all-star games this weekend. Of the Longhorns' 13 verbal commits, nine were selected to suit up for one last game before beginning their college careers.
Texas' fall from grace as a recruiting superpower should've been swift and painful. In 2010 and 2011, the Longhorns went a combined 13-12. There's no escaping that number. For opposing coaches looking to do some negative recruiting against UT, it doesn't -- or at least it shouldn't -- get much easier than that.
Texas went on the road and knocked off Texas Tech this week 31-22 for a crucial victory that gets the Longhorns' season back on track. But the real recruiting news of the weekend for Texas came from Fort Worth, not Lubbock.
