Texas Longhorns Football Recruiting: Updates on 2014 Commits and Targets

After the inevitable resignation of Mack Brown on Dec. 14, the Texas Longhorns find themselves in a weird sort of purgatory state, entering the meat of recruiting season with a new athletic director, Steve Patterson, and no long-term vision at head coach, despite being linked to seemingly every potential candidate—pro or college; tenured or young; realistic or utterly absurd—who's ever led a respective sideline.

Heading into post-Christmas bowl season, Texas has the No. 12 overall class in the 247Sports team rankings, though it's unclear how (or if) Brown's resignation will affect the status of those who have already committed to UT. Still, until something changes, the Longhorns have the best incoming class in the Big 12...by a lot.

Things can still get better, too. The Longhorns have a realistic shot to land a couple of undeclared 5-star prospects, which could help them weather the storm of this coaching change and dull the roars from their (rightfully) apprehensive fanbase.

Here's a live, updating primer of the entire class.
