Texas leads the way in Big 12
Originally Published: February 6, 2013By RecruitingNation | ESPN.com
Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the recruiting classes in the Big 12.
Darius James. The top-rated center in this class is also the top signee for the Longhorns, and James' size, athleticism and versatility along the line should allow him to contribute early.
Breakdown: The Longhorns had to make a run down the stretch, which is not typical. But they closed well and did a great job stacking up on offensive linemen. The Longhorns have three ESPN 150 prospects in the offensive trenches -- James, No. 4 OT Kent Perkins and No. 9 OT Jake Raulerson, who could play DE -- as well as Desmond Harrison, one of the top junior college left tackles in the country. Texas also has ESPN 150 WR Jacorey Warrick and ESPN 300 WR Jake Oliver coming in on offense to provide future production.
