Long odds on Longhorns flipping commits

08:10 AM ET 01.23 | National signing day looms, and the Longhorns still have some work to do. Texas would like to add a running back and wide receiver in this class, but the Horns are not going to take just anyone at either position. What Texas really wants from both positions is speed. That's the slight difference between the approach of Major Applewhite and Bryan Harsin. ... Keep an eye out for two names, both of whom fit the bill -- DeSoto's Dontre Wilson and Katy's Kyle Fulks. Texas admittedly has an uphill climb for both players. But that doesn't mean the Horns are going to go down easily. Wilson is committed to Oregon, but has shown some interest in Texas of late; Fulks, even with his pledge to Baylor, still has some academic hurdles to clear.

On the RB issue, a Fr will be 4th string behind the states no 1 last year, and the year before, etc... This RB class in Texas has much less talent than the previous 2-3.

Loaded at RB, just looking for a backup; get a LB or safety that can tackle please...

They need to add the Wizard of Oz. Give them a little heart and courage.

Yo! Horns fans! What do you think? Does Texas's stable of RBs need more speed or power?

Nope, the current team is good with Gray, Brown, Bergeron and Daja; good mix of power and speed.

2 will be Soph's and 2 will be Jr's.
