The different recruiting services all offer a different view of recruits' abilities and Parade has its own ideas. Texas placed seven on the Parade All-American Team for the 2010 recruiting class with a couple of notables. This is the list of Texas commits on that team.
- Traylon Shead Cayuga
- Darius White FW Dunbar
- Darius Terrell DeSoto
- Jackson Jeffcoat Plano West
- Taylor Bible Denton Guyer
- Jordan Hicks Lakota (OH) West
- DeMarco Cobbs Tulsa (OK) Central
Parade does not rank recruits by 'stars' thank goodness but Darius Terrell was probably the biggest surprise to me on this list as Rivals and ESPN don't have the same regard for him as Parade. Traylon Shead was a bit of a surprise to me though he played very well in the UA game.
Recruiting rankings mean nothing on the field but I think it's interesting that Texas claimed two out of state Parade All-Americans in this recruiting class. Will Muschamp was directly responsible for the coup in the state of Ohio. We all know that Texas owns recruiting in the great State of Texas (for the time being) but it's not every year that each high school senior class in Texas has elite players Texas needs at every position. Not to be greedy but we seem to be establishing a stronger and stronger national reputation and it would seem wise to leverage that strength. Could the 'Dawn of Muschamp' include pursuing more elite (Seantrell Henderson?) types from out of state?
