Big boys are often the latest to emerge because of the lengthy maturation process, but that's not the case at the very top of the list. Greg Little and Patrick Hudson are just that special and have been known commodities for well over a year. Some new names have been emerging of late, including a teammate of one of UT's top targets. One thing is clear to me, this group is much better than I initially thought. Joe Wickline has a lot of decisions to make on this class.
The 2015 cycle was unconventional, not just for Texas fans, but also Charlie Strong. Maybe especially Charlie Strong. Sure, it had some elements of his process at Louisville, but he got a whole lot more than he bargained for and ended up in some all out street fights with regional and national schools. He landed his share of body blows, and put WRTS at a standing eight count. You can actually say the fight with Aggie is now a draw, though I much prefer UT's trend line.
Now we're getting in some high cotton. These guys are expected to be multi-year starters if not outright studs. That won't always occur for various reasons, but talent shouldn't be a limiting factor. Each player has at least one defining trait which should smooth the transition from high school to college.
