AUSTIN, Texas – In 2012 Texas was the program stealing away with last-second recruits.

Dalton Santos was swayed from Tennessee. Daje Johnson was snatched from TCU. Shiro Davis spirited over the border from LSU.

The first two in that trio have already paid dividends for Texas. Santos became a special teams standout and emergency linebacker. Johnson proved to have the ability to break a game open when given that opportunity. Even Davis entered the fray a time or two as a backup defensive end.
