Texas Longhorns Have Top 2012 Recruiting Class So Far

Rachel McCoy's comments about boosters and players receiving illegal benefits haven't seemed to impacted Mack Brown's recruiting so far for the Longhorns. ESPN Insider published program rankings today for the recruiting class of 2012, and the Texas Longhorns sit atop of them - for now, at least. 

So far, the Longhorns have 17 commits, nine of which fall under the ESPNU Top 150 umbrella. The headline player to commit to Texas so far is running back Johnathan Gray, who is a Texas native himself. 


The Longhorns have a number of other high profile commits as well, but Gray tops the list. Among the other notables are quarterback Connor Brewer, defensive tackle Malcom Brown and wide out Cayleb Jones. 


One of the top young players out there is considering Texas as well. Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been linked to Texas - as well as a number of other schools. Green-Beckham is widely seen as the top wide receiver in the recruiting class, and one (if not the) top recruit in the entire class, regardless of position.


It's still very early in the recruiting process, but so far so good for Mack Brown and the Longhorns.
