Texas Football Recruiting: Meet All 2013 Commits

0 of 15

    The Texas Longhorns football program is going to get a huge boost from its 2013 recruiting class.

    Mack Brown and his staff have done a great job putting together this class, and they've brought in some very talented recruits.

    Texas was able to land a few star recruits, and that's especially true on the offensive line.

    The Longhorns' line of the future is going to be very strong, and a few players from this class will play a huge part in that success.

    Overall, the future is very bright.

    Let's meet the Longhorns' 2013 recruiting class:

Jake Raulerson

1 of 15
    Height: 6'5''

    Weight: 260 lbs. 

    Position: C

    Stars: 4-star

    High School: Celina High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: Stanford, Baylor, Florida, Arkansas, Auburn

    Commit Date: 2/3/12, Enrolled: 1/14/13

    Analysis:

    Raulerson is going to end up being a very important recruit for Texas. He's ranked as the No. 2 center recruit in the country according to the 247Sports Composite, so he obviously has a ton of potential. Look for Raulerson to back up Dominic Espinosa and then take over once he moves on.

Tyrone Swoopes

2 of 15
    Height: 6'4''

    Weight: 230 lbs. 

    Position: ATH/QB

    Stars: 4-star

    High School: Whitewright High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: 873 YD, 9 TD, 1,187 RUYD,  16 RUTD

    Other Finalists: Baylor

    Commit Date: 2/17/12, Enrolled: 1/14/13

    Analysis

    Tyrone Swoopes could be the next great quarterback for Texas, but it's going to take him some time to get there.

    The word to concentrate on with him is potential, because he has a ton of it. He has tremendous size, great mobility in and out of the pocket but he also has a very strong arm. With the David Ash and Case McCoy both capable of starting now, look for Swoopes to take a redshirt season.

Deoundrei Davis

3 of 15
    Height: 6'1.5''

    Weight: 210 lbs. 

    Position: OLB

    Stars: 4-star

    High School: Cypress Woods High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: 

    Other Finalists: N/A

    Commit Date: 2/26/12, Enrolled: 1/14/13

    Analysis

    Deoundrei Davis has the chance to come in and make an impact for the Longhorns right away. He'll most likely start as a good special teams player but in time he should be able to work his way into the rotation behind Peter Jenkens, Teven Jackson, Jordan Hicks and Kendall Thompson. 

Geoff Swaim

4 of 15
    Height: 6'5''

    Weight: 250 lbs. 

    Position: TE

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Butte College 

    2012 Stats: 11 REC, 88 YD, 3 TD

    Other Finalists: N/A

    Commit Date: 6/12/12, Signed: 11/19/12 Enrolled: 1/14/13

    Analysis

    D.J. Grant has run out of eligibility, so Swaim will have the chance to come in and compete right away for a starting gig. He has great size at 6'5'', 250-pounds and should be a very good in-line or blocking tight end for the Longhorns. His experience at the JUCO level and the fact that he enrolled early should really help him out.

Darius James

5 of 15
    Height: 6'6''

    Weight: 320 lbs. 

    Position: OG

    Stars: 5-star

    School: Harker Heights High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: Nebraska, Florida, Florida State, Baylor, Arkansas

    Commit Date: 3/5/12

    Analysis

    James is a big-time offensive guard recruit. He has tremendous size at 6'6'', 320-pounds, and he's the No. 1 offensive guard recruit in the 2013 class (247Sports). In time, he's going to be a star for the Longhorns on the offensive line. He'll backup Mason Walters and Trey Hopkins and will eventually move into one of their starting spots once they move on.

Kent Perkins

6 of 15
    Height: 6'6''

    Weight: 285 lbs. 

    Position: OT

    Stars: 4-star

    School: Lake Highlands High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: N/A

    Commit Date: 2/27/12

    Analysis

    Kent Perkins represents yet another huge offensive line commitment for the Longhorns. He has elite size and is ranked as the No. 3 offensive tackle in the 2013 class according to the 247Sports Composite. He'll compete for the starting job as a freshman, and he should eventually take over.

Desmond Harrison

7 of 15
    Height: 6'7''

    Weight: 305 lbs. 

    Position: OT

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Contra Costa College

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: N.C. State, Oklahoma, Arizona State

    Commit Date: 1/21/12

    Analysis

    Desmond Harrison, much like Perkins, will be a competitor for one of the tackle positions. Perkins has great size himself and may gain somewhat of an edge because of his experience at the JUCO level. He's ranked as the No. 3 JUCO offensive tackle according to the 247Sports Composite.

Jake Oliver

8 of 15
    Height: 6'4''

    Weight: 198 lbs. 

    Position: WR

    Stars: 4-star

    School: Jesuit Prep School (TX)

    Senior Stats: 93 REC, 1,354 YDs, 18 TD

    Other Finalists: Oklahoma

    Commit Date: 2/15/12

    Analysis

    Jake Oliver has the potential to be a great wideout for the Longhorns.

    His height will allow him to high-point balls and be a big red-zone target. He's also a big-time in-state recruiting win for Texas. The Longhorns are very deep right now at wide receiver with Mike Davis, Jackson Shipley, Cayleb Jones and Marcus Johnson all looking to contribute, and that includes a few backups like Kendall Sanders Bryant Jackson.

    Oliver could work his way into the rotation, or he may want to redshirt his first year.

Rami Hammad

9 of 15
    Height: 6'5''

    Weight: 320 lbs. 

    Position: OG

    Stars: 4-star

    School: Irving High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: 

    Other Finalists: Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma

    Commit Date: 1/23/13

    Analysis

    Rami Hammad just recently committed to Texas, and he's a big commitment for the Longhorns. He's also a former Baylor commitment, so he represents a big flip. He has great size and agility, and he should eventually compete for the starting role at one of the guard spots.

Antwuan Davis

10 of 15
    Height: 6'0''

    Weight: 180 lbs. 

    Position: CB

    Stars: 4-star

    School: Bastrop High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: Notre Dame

    Commit Date: 5/4/12

    Analysis

    Antwuan Davis is a very talented cornerback recruit who will get some looks early on. He has Carrington Byndom, Leroy Scott, Duke Thomas and Bryson Echols in front of him, but he should be able to compete as a nickel or dime corner as a freshman. He's ranked as the No. 13 overall cornerback according to the 247Sports Composite.

Chevoski Collins

11 of 15
    Height: 5'11''

    Weight: 185 lbs. 

    Position: S

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Livingston High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: Oklahoma

    Commit Date: 10/8/12

    Analysis

    Chovoski Collins is a very interesting recruit with a ton of potential for Texas. He could get some looks at corner because of his smaller size, but he is ranked as a safety. If Texas moves Quandre Diggs to safety, Collins may want to consider a redshirt year. Once Diggs and Adrian Phillips move on though, Collins could compete for a starting spot.

Naashon Hughes

12 of 15
    Height: 6'4''

    Weight: 211 lbs. 

    Position: OLB

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Harker Heights High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: USC

    Commit Date: 2/28/12

    Analysis

    Naashon Hughes has great height, which makes him a very interesting outside linebacker prospect. That should help him dropping back in coverage, and his length will also give him an advantage in space on the edges. Hughes has tremendous potential.


Montrel Meander

13 of 15
    Height: 6'3''

    Weight: 180 lbs. 

    Position: S

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Palo Duro High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: 109 TCK, 1 INT

    Other Finalists: Washington State

    Commit Date: 2/4/13

    Analysis

    Meander is an important in-state commitment for Texas, and that's not even to mention the fact that the Longhorns were able to flip him from Washington State. He has very good size for a safety coming out of high school at 6'3'', 180 pounds, and he represents a big recruiting win for Texas so close to singing day.

Jacorey Warrick

14 of 15
    Height: 5'10.5''

    Weight: 170 lbs. 

    Position: WR

    Stars: 4-star

    School: Cypress Falls High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: N/A

    Commit Date: 2/26/12

    Analysis

    Jacorey Warrick has decent size and great speed. He runs a 4.43s 40 according to 247Sports and is the No. 31 wideout recruit in the nation (247Sports Composite). In time, he could be a big deep threat for the Longhorns. He's recovering from a knee injury though, so a redshirt season would be a great option.

Erik Huhn

15 of 15
    Height: 6'2''

    Weight: 205 lbs.

    Position: S

    Stars: 3-star

    School: Byron P. Steele II High School (TX)

    Senior Stats: N/A

    Other Finalists: Georgia, Oklahoma

    Commit Date: 6/3/12

    Analysis

    Erik Huhn has great measurables, and in time he could be a very good option at safety for Texas. He'll be a good special teams player right off the bat, but look for him to compete for a safety position as a sophomore or junior.
