Mack Brown and the University of Texas consistently bring in top-10 rated recruiting classes. The difference between a good class and a great class though, is the quality of their out-of-state recruits.
Texas has a history of signing the majority of their recruits from the Lone Star State, such as Vince Young, Cedric Benson and Brian Orakpo, but Mack Brown has also excelled at recruiting out-of-state as well.
Some of the recruits Brown has on the current roster that he brought in from out of state are 5-star recruit Jordan Hicks (Ohio) and 4-star recruits Conner Brewer (Arizona), Donald Hawkins (Mississippi), DeMarco Cobbs (Oklahoma) and Josh Turner (Oklahoma).
Here are seven out-of-state recruits from the 2013 class that Mack Brown must turn into Texas Longhorns.
