National Signing Day 2010: Is the Texas Longhorns Recruiting Class the Best Ever?

By most accounts I've heard, nobody else should even show up on this, the 2010 National Collegiate Football Letter of Intent Signing Day.

Lately, everything we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell these days has the Florida Gators hands-down, no doubt about it, listed as having potentially the greatest recruiting class of all time.

Hey, don't get me wrong. They are going to be loaded—again. But in taking a closer look, per Rivals.com and the ESPNU 150, the Longhorns of Texas are actually tied with Florida in rankings per player, with the margin ever so slightly leaning Florida's way with four five-star recruits, while Texas currently has two five-star recruits.

Based on the ever popular five-star grading system, both schools average 3.92 stars per player. And the next closest aren't even close, really, with Alabama projected to come in at 3.62, and Auburn at 3.52.

That being said, and given that we have all seen strange things occur on signing days past, let's take a look at just a few of these lauded commits and what will likely turn out to be one of the greatest recruiting classes ever...and I am not talking about Florida.
