Default The best thing to happen to the University of Texas???

Okay, I am a big UT fan but I was rooting for the Sooners to win today just for the reason that I despise the Pac-10. Right now it is 48-10 and I got the thinking: Could this be the best thing for the University of Texas??? Bob Stoops is known for taking talent from the state of Texas, while Mack Brown losses out on the talent (Tommie Harris, Adrian Peterson, etc.) but with seeing what conspried over the last couple days, I think more of the top recruits will commit to the University of Texas. The recurits saw Texas win an exciting game in the Rose Bowl and offensive recruits saw how fun it could be to play with Vince Young. The recurits also saw OU get destroyed in the national championship game against a team that almost everyone picked them to beat. And this for a second straight year. So do yall think that this (UT getting a couple of big recruits this year) may happen or am I just looking through burnt orange glasses???

As you know..I bleed orange. I really feel like most of the recruits have made up their minds already! I know there are a few recruits still deciding (ie. Jermichael Finley, Ryan Perrilloux and Fred Rouse) but the majority have already decided!

If the Horns can beat OU next year, it will really help recruiting. Losing 5 years in a row really hurts!

I don't think the Horns have a problem with getting great players. I think it is more of a problem with how they are developed once we get them! I do see promising things from UT and the Rose Bowl was a great way to start things!

Agreed .. Just like Peterson.. When he was recruited by UT, Ut brought him to a UT-Oklahoma game.. and Oklahoma blasted UT.. well we know how his decision was persuaded. According to the TV ... Oklahoma is losing 8 offensive players and 7 defensive players and the punter this season.. Maybe this will be Macks time to actually gain on Oklahoma and finally win one.

I really don't see it having quite that much influence on the future recruits for a couple reasons. For starters the players for OU at least got a chance to shine in the biggest stage in college football even if they were beaten soundly by USC. UT hasn't given its players the chance to play for a National Title or for that matter a Big 12 Title for the past 5 years or so. I agree that UT still gets great talent, but the days of UT getting the best talent in Texas are over I believe. OU/UT's recruiting battle in Texas is much like Miami/FSU/UF's recruiting battle in Florida every year. My only wish is that Baylor might be able to sneak one or two pretty good recruits away from the likes of UT/A&M/Tech. Hey a guy can dream can't he.

The Horns still have a ways to go in recruiting this year. IF (big if) they can land Fred Rouse (WR) then this vaults them into the top 10 in rankings for sure. There is also still plenty of time for Perilloux to change his mind the other wayas well.

The next couple of weeks are very important for Brown. He must step up and land some more big names. Especially when Nebraska, A&M, Tech, and OK are already having big offseasons.

So time will tell how much of an impact the Rose and Orange really have.

But if anyone can land em... its ole Mack

All part of Stoops' diabolical plan to rule the world!!! Start by losing the Big 12 title game, then go on to lose the Sugar Bowl to LSU, and then get dominated by USC in order to distract the world while you stockpile sharks with lasers on their heads! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Horns grab commitment from state's top football recruit
Alief tight end Martellus Bennett, No. 1 on the Fab 55, pledges to Texas.

Alief Taylor's Martellus Bennett the state's top high school football recruit and the top-rated tight end in the nation has verbally committed to play for the University of Texas, two sources close to the Longhorns' program confirmed Monday.

Bennett, the No. 1 prospect on the Austin American-Statesman's Fabulous 55, informed Texas Coach Mack Brown of his commitment during a phone call after the Longhorns' victory over Michigan in the Rose Bowl. Bennett promised Brown that he would help bring Texas back to Pasadena next season, this time to play in the national championship game, a source said.

Bennett, a 6-foot-7-inch, 237-pound tight end, caught 42 passes for 487 yards and six touchdowns in his senior season. He also registered more than 100 pancake blocks.

He is ranked as the No. 7 overall prospect in the nation and the No. 1 tight end by Rivals100.com. College scouts have marveled at Bennett's combination of size, speed and agility.

Bennett picked the Longhorns over Texas A&M where his older brother, Michael, attends and the University of Miami. He originally committed to Miami, then de-committed. Bennett could not be reached for comment Monday.

Texas' starting tight end this past season, David Thomas, will be a senior in the fall.

Ryan Perrilloux, the highly touted quarterback from Reserve, La., who also has verbally committed to the Longhorns, said Monday that he is excited about the prospect of playing with Bennett.

Perrilloux and Bennett have been in San Antonio this week, practicing for Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl, a national high school all-star game. They will both play on the West squad Saturday.

One of the juicier rumors floating around recruiting circles is that the nation's top-rated wide receiver Fred Rouse of Tallahassee, Fla. will bolt the Sunshine State to join Perrilloux and Bennett at Texas. Rouse, who is considering Florida State and Texas among others, also is in San Antonio for the all-star game. He'll play on the East team, and Perrilloux said he hasn't seen much of the wideout.

"But we're (Perrilloux and Bennett) working on him," Perrilloux said.
