The Class of 2013 is signed, sealed and a few short months away from being delivered. But what exactly can we learn from it?

A year ago, this appeared to be the class that could change everything. SEC powerhouses upping their efforts in the state threatened to change lots of dynamics about how recruiting works in the state of Texas.

But then something else happened: Texas A&M. Kevin Sumlin made the Aggies, in his words, "a clear choice in the region" for top recruits. Texas, meanwhile, signed a small but strong 15-man class and now faces a remarkably serious battle for the state's best in 2014.
