National Signing Day review: Texas, Baylor football recruiting

The Texas Longhorns and Baylor Bears came away from National Signing Day with plenty of four-star recruits, but no five-stars.


The Texas Longhorns came away from National Signing Day with 11 four-star recruits and several more three-stars, but they also ended the day a little disappointed.

Five (five!) five-star recruits decommitted from Texas through the recruiting process, leaving only defensive lineman Andrew Billings on the table for Wednesday morning. Then he chose to go elsewhere, too.

Texas' top recruit was center Darius James, who ranks as one of the top offensive lineman recruits in the country. The Longhorns also solidified their line with offensive tackles Kent Perkins and Jake Raulerson.

But where did Andrew Billings end up? Well, he went to Baylor.

Billings is the prize piece in a 22-man recruiting class for the Baylor Bears, and is one of several four-star recruits.
