In its first season in the Big 12, TCU's recruiting class ranks in the middle of the road, just as it did in the Mountain West. But most recruiting analysts agree that, beyond the website rankings, there are some history-making storylines. It all began when Arlington Martin running back Kyle Hicks jumped the Texas Longhorns ship and switched his commitment to TCU in early December, becoming the first player TCU has flipped from Texas in the modern era of football recruiting. Next was Auburn, Ala., athlete Cameron Echols-Luper, who switched his pledge from Texas A&M to TCU on Jan 13.
