AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas' Class of 2013, for now at least, might be known more for who it didn't get than who it did.

Players rarely decommit from Mack Brown's program, yet a handful opted to in this recruiting cycle in A'Shawn Robinson (Fort Worth, Texas/Arlington Heights), Ricky Seals-Jones (Sealy, Texas/Sealy), Daeshon Hall (Lancaster, Texas/Lancaster), Kyle Hicks (Arlington, Texas/Martin) and Durham Smythe (Belton, Texas/Belton).

Miller Safrit/ESPNTexas' offensive line class, led by No. 1-ranked center Darius James, might be the best in the nation.
Then there were those highly-regarded recruits who never chose to commit to the Longhorns in the first place such as in-state products Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto), Maurice Smith (Sugar Land, Texas/Dulles), Caleb Benenoch (Katy, Texas/Seven Lakes), Robbie Rhodes (Fort Worth, Texas/Southwest) and Dannon Cavil (San Antonio/Madison).
