Though spring practice has taken center stage for the Texas Longhorns, recruiting season for the 2014 class is still very much in full swing. Given some recent misses on the trail, Mack Brown and his staff need to work on locking up their top targets.
Though the 'Horns already have eight commits, the recent down seasons are very obviously taking their toll on next year's haul. Defensive backs Edward Paris and Dylan Sumner-Gardner are gone, top linebacker Hoza Scott has chosen the Aggies and nothing else is coming easy for a team that could be replacing up to 12 starters in 2014.
Luckily there is plenty of time for Brown and the staff to get things turned around with a flipped commit or a national-level talent. These are the top candidates for the 'Horns to do just that.
