Texas had its chance with some of the best of the best in the 2013 class. What would it look like had the Horns gotten everyone they wanted.
Texas' 2013 recruiting class could be known for the players it didn't get. However, its 15 members are focused on being a tight-knit group.
Oklahoma Sooners commit Jordan Mastrogiovanni, Texas Longhorns commit Jake Oliver have been friends and teammates since they were in the fifth grade. Come next year, though, they'll be on opposite sidelines of the Red River Rivalry game.
Texas' 2011 season certainly had its moments. These are some of the plays from the season that made the biggest impact
With the win over Texas A&M, the young Longhorns have a signature moment, and more importantly, their new identity.
While the pressure of the family name is with Case McCoy and Jaxon Shipley, the duo is slowing trying to find their own path.
Against Rice, Texas' offense had yet to show what it was capable of. The 8-play, 99-yard scoring drive turned the game and gave a glimpse of the Longhorns potential.
While the win no doubt showed off what the Texas fans have waited to see, new offensive trickerator Bryan Harsin can't wait to dazzle with more.
With 18 freshmen throughout Texas' two-deep depth chart, players like Jaxon Shipley and Quandre Diggs should make a significant impact in 2011.
