I just wish we had five more of similar quality. Will feel better when all 15 have signed. Warning though: the media will beat us up over this class - no DL (unless Raulerson), 5 decommits, only 15 in the class. Be prepared. It's going to be slanted.
The average grade per player is very good. That won't be talked about much in the media, though.

I really could care less how the media talks about them. I care about how they perform the next 4-5 years.
I care about the fact we have the following number of commits at each listed position:
I'm not bagging on the kids that are coming and I'm very grateful that they will become Horns, but filling glaring needs in this class would score maybe a 50 at best and that's solely based on the O-Line class.
You could list Raulerson at DE and Swaim at TE....
0- RB which we are loaded right now
0- DT a problem......major problem
While they're not listed @ these spots...
RB - not done yet
TE - Swoopes
DE - Naashon Hughes (especially if he's @ 6'5" as some reporting now...just me, but I compare Hughes to Sergio)

Love the OL, which has been our biggest need. Glad we loaded up there.
Very concerned about DL, QB and TE.
thought Swaim was a TE?
DT/DE is a sore spot but not sure the RB spot doesn't get filled by either Mr Kinner or Young.
DT and DE are the big problems. We could have used at least 1 of each and probably 2 DTs. Can't miss next year.
Rb...we're loaded and kinner might be on the way.
Te...agree we missed but we can't miss something we haven't used in a long time.
To you 15 that chose The University of Texas, thanks, every person on this board will be rooting for you. Work hard, lets win some championships and those that almost came here will regret the day they chose the other school!
I have no problem with the 15 commits. Should be an exceptional group. The way that we got there is what concerns me.
RB is a need in this class, because there is a really good chance that Gray leaves after his Jr. year along with Sr.(s) Brown and Bergeron.
That would leave a 2015 depth chart of
Daje - Jr. more of a APB
Catalon - RSFr.
Gresham - RSFr. more of a FB
In fact this really should have been a 2 RB class.
