The Texas Longhorns might be in a mode of mediocrity on the field, but their recruiting prowess has not slipped nearly as far down the ladder.
Still considered to be the standard that parents look at when it comes to college football in the Lone Star State, Texas has about as much to offer an eager recruit as any program in the country, making Austin a calling card for future NFL prospects.
One of the first stages that can open up the roads for a professional career is the High School All-America games, notably the Under Armour and Army bowl matches featuring some of the top talent from across the nation.
The Longhorns are well-represented year after year, and the representation from the 2013 recruiting class is no different.
Texas has eight commitments participating in either game on Saturday, most of whom can be seen in the Army All-American Bowl at 1 p.m. ET.
