Players are often times recruited to programs because of the skill set they can bring to that specific program.

To wit: Texas passed over J.W. Walsh, a runner/thrower, in favor of the stronger-armed David Ash. Walsh fit better at Oklahoma State. Ash fit better with the SEC-like direction Texas wanted to go.

Ah, but systems change. The players, on the other hand, usually don’t. Which brings us to the interesting goings on at Texas. The Longhorns, who recruited for an SEC-style offense for two years, have now decided to go with a Big 12-style scheme.

Knowing that change is happening, we at HornsNation thought it time to address, in this week’s question of the week, just who would benefit the most from those changes.
