Texas Inks 15

The Texas Longhorns signed another nationally ranked recruiting class on Wednesday. Among the 15 commitments that are either already enrolled or signed their letters of intent today, six are members of the 2013 Top247 and 10 are four-star prospects.

Texas' class of 15 is highlighted by an impressive haul of five high-ranking offensive linemen.

The class is centered around the offensive line, and Texas assistant coach Stacy Searels made quite an impressive haul with five offensive line commits, including two Top 50 prospects and the nation's top-ranked junior college offensive lineman. In fact, all five line prospects are ranked as four-stars and in the Top247.

Here is a run down of the Texas 2013 class.

Chevoski Collins, S, Livingston (Texas)

247Sports Ranking: Three-star with a rating of 89

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Collins was a jack-of-all-trades for head coach Randy Rowe at Livingston. He lined up at quarterback, wide receiver, safety and returned kicks as a senior, but will very likely end up in the defensive backfield for the Longhorns. Collins possesses plus feet and impressive hip flexibility and change of direction to go with quality ball skills. He is quicker than fast.

Collins selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Baylor and Oklahoma State

Antwuan Davis, CB, Bastrop (Texas)

247Sports Ranking: Four-star with a rating of 90

The 5-foot-11.5, 180-pound Davis is one of the state's faster prospects having run the 100-meters in 10.5 seconds. On the football field, Davis returned from back and hip injuries as a senior, and showed the speed and quickness that made him one of the most coveted defensive backs in the state. The U.S. Army All-American will likely get looks at corner and safety at Texas.

Davis selected Texas over – Arkansas, Baylor, Arizona and others.

Deoundrei Davis, OLB, Houston (Texas) Cypress Woods

247Sports Ranking: Four-star with a rating of 90

The 6-foot-1.5, 205-pound Davis missed the majority of his senior season due to an ACL tear. Before the injury, the four-star prospect and U.S. Army All-American was showing the quickness, reactions, physicality and ability to close and strike that made him one of the most heavily recruited linebackers in the region. If healthy, Davis is likely to play his way into the rotation as a freshman. He has already enrolled at Texas.

Davis selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech

Rami Hammad, OG, Irving (Texas)

247Sports Ranking: No. 219 in the Top247 with a rating of 91

The 6-foot4.5, 310-pound Hammad was one of the state's most improved players as a senior, playing under the direction of first-year Irving High head coach Aaron De La Torre, the father of Texas fullback Alex De La Torre. The Top247 prospect, who was committed to Oklahoma State and Baylor during the process before a January flip to Texas, is a physical and powerful guard prospect that will not only provide the Longhorns with another interior player in future years, but also bring true toughness to the line He played in the Semper-Fi All-Star game in early January.

Hammad selected Texas over – Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU and Oklahoma

Desmond Harrison, OT, San Pablo (Calif.) Contra Costa C.C.

247Sports Ranking: No. 5 JUCO prospect nationally with a rating of 96

The 6-foot-7, 305-pound Harrison may well turn out to be the jewel of the 2013 class with a high NFL draft pick ceiling. The late bloomer physically entered Contra Costa as a raw, but very athletic tackle and leaves as one of the most highly coveted line prospects in the 2013 class. Harrison, who attended high school at Fort Bend Marshall before moving to North Carolina, selected the Longhorns over Oklahoma, USC and Arizona State after considering offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Washington and many others. Harrison possesses the quickness and ability to play in space rarely seen at his size,

Harrison selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Arizona State and Southern California

Naashon Hughes, OLB, Killeen (Texas) Harker Heights

247Sports Ranking: Three-star prospect with a rating of 89

The young brother of class of 2012 offensive tackle Camrhon Hughes, Naashon was a gray shirt offer for a number of months before being offered a full scholarship as part of the 2013 class in November. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Semper-Fi All-American comes to Texas as an outside linebacker prospect with the frame to carry more than 230-pounds, and the ability to play in space.

Hughes selected Texas over – South Carolina, Baylor and LSU

Erik Huhn, S/OLB, Cibolo (Texas) Steele

247Sports Ranking: Three-star prospect with a rating of 85

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Huhn is another prospect in the Longhorns class that suffered a season-ending knee injury as a senior. Prior to the injury, Huhn was a rangy and physical safety on the high school level that projects to outside linebacker long term with the frame to carry 220-ponds or more in time. A red shirt season is expected for the defensive leader of a terrific Cibolo Steele team that has been among the state's best in 5A in recent years.

Huhn selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Georgia, Baylor and others.

Darius James, OG/C, Killeen (Texas) Harker Heights

247Sports Ranking: No. 35 in the Top247 with a rating of 97

The 6-foot-5, 325-pound James is one of the top offensive line prospects in the 2013 class, despite suffering a twice broken foot and missing the majority of his senior season. At the 2013 Under Armour All-American Game, the Top247 prospect showed why he was nationally recruited as he was a force in the run game playing tackle, and doing so impressively at around 335-pounds. James’ calling card is his versatility, as he could play right tackle, guard or center at the next level. James is expected to make a push for playing time as a true freshman.

James selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Florida State, Florida and others.

Montrel Meander, Ath. Amarillo (Texas) Palo Duro

247Sports Ranking: Four-star prospect with a rating of 90

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Meander was a late recruit and visitor for the Longhorns after flying completely under the radar for most of his senior season. The safety and wide receiver first committed to Washington State before visiting Texas Feb. 2 and flipping to the Longhorns Feb 4. The three-sport star with 21.55 200-meter speed will likely begin his career at wide receiver for the Longhorns, but could also project to safety.

Meander selected Texas over – Washington State, Texas Tech, Missouri and California

Jake Oliver, WR, Dallas (Texas) Jesuit

247Sports Ranking: No. 152 in the Top247 with a rating of 94

Oliver comes to Texas as one of the most decorated wide receivers in the history of the state of Texas. The 6-foot-3.5, 203-pound Oliver holds several state records, and is a ready-made prospect that is expected to see the field as a true freshman due in large part to his advanced route running, understanding and ability to make an impact as a blocker. The Top247 prospect played in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American game.

Oliver selected Texas over – Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Georgia and others.

Kent Perkins, OT, Richardson (Texas) Lake Highlands

247Sports Ranking: No. 49 in the Top247 with a rating of 96

The 6-foot-6, 295-pound Perkins is one of the top offensive line prospects in the 2013 class, both in state and nationally. Perkins, who played right tackle at Lake Highlands and will begin his college career at the same spot, is blessed with the frame college coaches dream about, and a very high ceiling. The U.S. Army All-American and Top247 prospect will very likely redshirt in 2013.

Perkins selected Texas over – Oklahoma, LSU, Baylor and others.

Jake Raulerson, OL, Celina (Texas)

247Sports Ranking: No. 172 in the Top247 with a rating of 93

The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Raulerson was the first commitment of the 2013 class, and was a key recruiter for Mack Brown and staff. On the field, the U.S. Army All-American played right tackle and defensive tackle for storied Celina in high school, and projects to center or guard at the next level. The Top247 prospect will likely need ample time to stack the weight needed at the next level, but possesses very good feet and the type of want-to and tenacity college coaches covet.

Raulerson selected Texas over – Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas and others.

Greg Swaim, TE, Oroville (Calif.) Butte College

247Sports Ranking: No. 105 ranked JUCO prospect with a rating of 85

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Swaim is expected to be an impact prospect at the tight end position due in large part to his ability to be a difference maker as an in-line blocker. As a sophomore at Butte College, Swaim was a dominant blocker but also an improved route runner and pass catcher. Swaim is already enrolled at Texas and will take part in spring practice.

Tyrone Swoopes, Ath., Whitewright (Texas)

247Sports Ranking: No. 235 in the Top247 with a rating of 91

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Swoopes is already on campus in Austin, and is preparing for his first spring practice with the Longhorns. The small-school prospect will begin his career at quarterback for Mack Brown and staff with a couple of years of development ahead of him. If not quarterback, the U.S. Army All-American could project to a number of positions. Swoopes enters the college ranks as a dual-threat signal caller with a likely mechanical overhaul in front of him.

Swoopes selected Texas over – TCU, Oklahoma and others.

Jacorey Warrick, WR, Houston (Texas) Cypress Falls

247Sports Ranking: Three-star prospect with a rating of 89

The 5-foot-10, 172-pound Warrick is another member of the 2013 class that had his season curt short due to a minor knee injury. Warrick, who will likely play slot receiver for the Longhorns, is an advanced route runner that excels on double moves. He is quick off the line, and creates separation out of cuts with burst and an understanding of how to set opposing defensive backs up.

Warrick selected Texas over – Baylor, Nebraska, Clemson and others.
