As mentioned in the Morning Coffee, the only name left in the mix is Dallas Skyline DB Christian Scott. Looks like a better than even chance Mack seals the deal, though don't expect to hear until late this week.
Full recruiting board below. Thoughts on the class as a whole encouraged in the comments. If it's not Mack Brown's best class, it's damn close. The talent on both lines and in the secondary is truly disgusting. If even half of them live up to their hype, Texas will be fielding some truly special talent by 2008, and perhaps sooner, in some cases.
