[tag]Mack Brown[/tag] was hired in 1997 and brought early recruiting with him to the Big 12 from the ACC.

Recruiting early is one thing, but recruiting quality athletes and people early is a lot tougher. You can judge the measureables like size and speed, but how do you know a kid’s character and other intangibles in such a short amount of time?

Of course part of the reason for all of Texas’ early commits is the lack of competition from the in-state schools. With the Aggies down like they have been for a while now, if you’re a recruit in the state of Texas you better jump on a Longhorn offer quickly if you want to play for a top tier national team.

With a national title now on his resume, Big 12 schools and coaches across the country better watch out for the 2007 class Mack Brown is about to put together.
