Texas had a small senior class in 2012, and thus, was forced to take a small recruiting class in 2013. That was only part of the problem, but Texas suffered more decommitments on the recruiting trail than it had in a long time, losing recruits to Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Alabama. Once all the ink on the letters of intent was dry, Texas had only the nation's No. 16 class, far below the Longhorns' lofty expectations.
