As the recruiting period comes to a close, Charlie Strong has his work cut out for him.

The closer Charlie Strong gets to national signing day, the more he and the Longhorns want it to just be over with.

In terms of its 2014 recruiting class, Texas has seen better days. The decommitments continue to pile up for the Longhorns as members of Charlie Strong's first class continue to shop around. Sunday was the latest and most damaging hit to the 2014 haul, as Texas A&M successfully snatched away 4-star linebacker Otaro Alaka.

Losing Alaka takes the luster off of last week's Edwin Freeman pledge, which was already being overshadowed by the numerous recruits that are visiting other programs. 

But the 10 days until the big day is an eternity at this stage of the process. Rumors are still flying, and the 'Horns still have plenty of time to reel in their last few targets, one being a means of returning the Aggies' favor. 

Which recruits are the Longhorns going after in the waning days? Is Alaka the final blow, or are more decommits yet to come? Find out as we break down each remaining target and rumor leading up to the end of the 2014 recruiting season.
