Over the last several years, the Texas recruiting class has mostly been finished by the time the spring game rolls around in April, allowing the coaching staff to focus on the event as a chance to get some of the top prospects in the following class onto campus for the first time. As a result, over 200 of the top 2012 prospects will be in attendance on Sunday when Texas completes spring practice with a scrimmage in DKR. Some of the top players who are expected to attend are Austin High wide receiver Cayleb Jones, Aledo running back Johnathan Gray, Kilgore running back Ladarius Anthony, DeSoto offensive lineman Curtis Riser, and a host of others.
However, that doesn't mean that the game won't serve as a chance to get several uncommitted prospects into town. In fact, it will represent the first time that Oklahoma City Millwood cornerback Josh Turner has made it into Austin after being unable to attend the second Junior Day. Turner and several of his teammates will make the trip with their offensive coordinator. Cleveland defensive end Cedric Reed is also expected to be in town after visiting last week to take in a practice and sightsee around town. The Aggies have made up some ground in his recruitment, but it still looks like the Longhorns are the leader for the talented defensive end. San Antonio Sam Houston defensive tackle Quincy Russell is expected to make the trip, but it is unclear whether or not Cibolo Steele's Malcolm Brown or Skyline's Anthony Wallace will be in attendance.
