While the Texas A&M-Alabama game may attract the most attention around the country, the Lone Star State also will be tuned into what’s happening in Austin, Texas.
The Longhorns host Ole Miss in a game that could have major implications from a recruiting standpoint. Texas currently sits at No. 7 in the 2014 class rankings, but coming off a disappointing loss to BYU that resulted in defensive coordinator Manny Diaz losing his job to Greg Robinson, Mack Brown needs a win to regain momentum on the trail.
The Rebels, meanwhile, are one of the game's hot teams. True freshmen Robert Nkemdiche and Laquon Treadwell have made instant impacts, making Hugh Freeze's team more attractive to current recruiting targets. Texas dominated Ole Miss, 66-31, last year, so the Rebels will be looking for revenge.
Here are five players -- three 2014 recruits and two from 2015 -- who will be paying close attention to the game on Saturday.
