AUSTIN, Texas -- Not much of the top talent in the state escaped the top program in the state in 2010.

Texas, coming off a national championship appearance, won the recruiting battle for defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat and just about every other player it went after. The Longhorns locked up four of the top five recruits from Texas in ESPN’s 150. The lone miss was defensive back Ahmad Dixon out of Waco. And Texas even had Dixon for a short period.

Another year, another recruiting saga.
