The loss of Seals-Jones hurts, but Texas still has a significant portion of its future tied up in this group of rising high school seniors. And with Texas' commitment to being two-deep at every position, a great majority of these guys should have no problem finding a way to contribute.
Read on and see for yourself the impact this recruiting class will have on the future success of this Texas team.
