This may have been asked before, but how do you see the 2013 class ending with, if anyone? Thanks.
Will there ever actually be a chat function or was that idea scrapped?
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

How would you describe UT's recruiting momentum for the 2014 class?

Myles Garrett (Arlington/Martin), 6-4, 240
LB Offers Out:

Who are the realistic decommits/other schools' commits we have a real chance at landing last minute (ie: Shiro Davis)?

How big of an impact do you honestly think Larry Porter will have on the 2014 class and what recruits do you think he'll be out in charge of as a lead?
Bobby - did Harsin have final say on offensive scholarship offers? If so, does that fall to Major now? Does Mack have final decision or does he rely on his coordinators judgment?
I ask because I'm curious about future QB recruiting...
Which region would you list now as the most important to control?
Do we have a shot at Alex Collins the rb out of Florida?
How many more scholarships do we still have available?
Do you think we have a good shot at the QB/S Nick Marshall?
Are we still trying to land Laremy Tunsil?

With A&M picking up steam in recruiting,do you expect this staff to act with more urgency than they did this year in regards to 2014 kids?

Obviously OL recruiting/evaluation has become an imperfect science at UT in recent history, but if we close the 2013 class with Harrison and Hammad to go with James, Perkins and Raulerson (down the road o-line likely), and add Knox and any of Pelzel/Cuney/Others in 2014, do you think that mix, along with our 2012 guys (Estelle, Riser, Hughes) will create a future 2-deep that will get us to where we need to be in terms of being able to impose our will on opposing D's in the running game? (ps, I realize that was the longest sentence ever, but that collection of names has me pretty giddy as to what our OL might look like in the near future).
If we keep A'Shawn and add Billings, what does the 2-3 deep at DT look like next year at the beginning of the year, and at the end of the year?
If we were to close this class with a total of 20, predict the final 7 commits.....

What effect does Major's promotion to OC potentially have on recruiting? I recall a tweet mentioning that a high school coach said if Texas had played as wide open as they did in the bowl game, they would have any offensive player they wanted.
Also what direction does Major go with the offensive system? Will it be spread run, pass, or does he shoot for balance?
Looking forward to the spring and on into next season, how do you see the RB carries distributed? I think it became increasingly obvious as the season came to an end that MB and JG are clearly the two best true RB's on the team.
Further, it became painfully obvious that JB lost a step or two yet he still got more carries than expected which took carries away from JG and MB.
With Daje now solidly in the fold as well, do you see the coaches limiting the carries that JB was getting so that there are enough carries to go around for JG, MB and Daje?
Well Mack be open to the idea of satellite camps for recruiting?
It sounded like Hammad was very interested in Texas and would be a good bet to flip if offered. Have the recent offers he received changed that at all or does Texas still feel good about where they stand?
Does it still look like Harrison will announce soon? You guys seem to be pretty confident in Texas landing this one.
Is Texas overly cautious in recruiting? Every year, it seems, the staff backs off a couple kids amongst whispers of street agents/uncles and the like. The kids then sign with other schools, and with the exception of Oregon, we never hear anything further about them except how well they're doing.
So is it today or tomorrow?
Do you see a day in the Big 12 where recruiting for college football looks like recruiting for college basketball?
Today. Starts in 8 minutes.
Is Harrison the last oline commit for this class?

Any feel for whether Case McCoy and/or Jordan Hicks return to the team this year? Their lawyers stated both will return to Texas for spring semester.
Will they be allowed to practice with the team?
Yes, he did. But I expect Applewhite to be given greater leverage on the offensive side of the ball than Harsin.
Most of that has to do with familiarity with Mack, the other is just simply more long-term trust between the two.
