How Texas narrowly avoided losing their talented DL to Texas A&M

The 2014 Horns defensive line could have ended up looking quite different than it will this season.

So. Close.

Heading into the 2014 season, the Texas Longhorns will lean heavily on senior defensive end Cedric Reed and junior Malcom Brown, while sophomore defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway tries to convert some of his massive potential into production.

SB Nation 2014 College Football Guide

But Reed, Brown, and Ridgeway could have easily ended up wearing the maroon and white for the Texas A&M Aggies and perhaps would have done so in the current environment.

A look at their individual recruitments explains why.

In April of 2010, the Horns and the Aggies were battling for star Cleveland defensive end Cedric Reed, a relatively raw but long and promising 6'6, 245-pounder with more than 20 scholarship offers from around the country, including LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Stanford, and USC.

Reed, Brown, and Ridgeway could have easily ended up wearing the maroon and white for the Texas A&M Aggies and perhaps would have done so in the current environment

Announcing on his deceased mother's birthday, Reed cited the family atmosphere at Texas a major reason for his commitment to Orangebloods, but also told Inside Texas that he wanted to play for a national championship.

In what at the time still seemed like the glory days of Longhorns football, Texas was just coming off the title game appearance against Alabama.

Even after the disappointment there, the strong close to the 2010 recruiting class that featured the Five-Star Friday commitments of linebacker Jordan Hicks and defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat helped jumpstart the momentum for a 2011 class that came together with remarkable speed when Junior Days felt like Christmas and were orchestrated to the extent your parents orchestrated Christmas when you were a kid.

Remember when recruits actually seriously talked about the ability to win a national championship at Texas? It certainly feels like an incredible distance from flameout defensive tackle Taylor Bible's bold claim of four of them during his career and though the distance from more subdued claims about such wins isn't as great, it's significant nonetheless.

It's just not something that prospects who commit to Texas say any more and for good reason -- the narrative is about getting back towards the top, not summiting the mountain of college football.

At the time of Reed's commitment, however, the big defensive end was the 20th commitment in the 2011 class for the Horns about 10 months from Signing Day and he eventually finished as a four-star prospect by Rivals ranked as the No. 23 player in the state. In re-assessing those rankings, he would assuredly rank in the top 10.

When Reed pledged in 2010, the Horns also held commits from eight other players with offers from the Aggies -- running back Joe Bergeron, offensive tackle Josh Cochran, cornerback Quandre Diggs, linebacker Steve Edmond, offensive tackle Marcus Hutchins, defensive tackle Desmond Jackson, wide receiver Miles Onyegbule, and defensive tackle Quincy Russell.

Fortunately for the Horns, continued struggles during the 2011 season didn't impact recruiting significantly in the class of 2012.

It wasn't easy, however, during the early days recruiting Brenham teammates Tim Cole and Malcom Brown. Both players took numerous visits to College Station and were considered pretty significant Aggie leans throughout the early part of 2011. In fact, it seemed like only a matter of time before both pledged to A&M, especially after Brown missed a Junior Day when his transportation fell through.

Malcombrownhookem_mediumBrown was throwing his horns up right before NSD 2012 despite rumors he would decommit and sign with the Aggies (Wescott Eberts -- SB Nation).

But it turned out that Brown's ride issues were legitimate and the program grew on both players, with Brown announcing to his friend on the return to Brenham from one trip to Austin that he wanted to commit to Texas.

What happened? Brown told BON in early 2012 before he signed that when he was an Aggie lean, it was because he hadn't gotten out to see other places.

Just before the 2011 Orange-White game, the news broke that both players had ended their respective recruitments in favor of the Horns over the Aggies.

Rated as a consensus five-star prospect, 247Sports thought so highly of Brown that he was given a rating of 99. In the final Composite rankings, he was the No. 9 prospect nationally, the No. 2 defensive tackle, and the No. 3 player in the state of Texas.

Possessing both extraordinary quickness and size, Brown was also known for his motor, frequently chasing plays well downfield despite weighing 300 pounds or more throughout most of his high school career. Putting on his film, it was clear that football mattered deeply to him because there was more than just his incredible talent on display.

Then there was Mansfield defensive Hassan Ridgeway. Young for his age when the Horns decided to offer him in early 2011, he had just picked up an offer from the Aggies, but only took three days to commit after the first Texas Junior Day.

HIs recruitment was far from over, however, as the Aggies would remain persist in chasing the rapidly growing defensive end, whose physique by the Army All-American game had changed drastically -- even two and a half years ago, he was well on his way to his current weight of 300 pounds.

Ridgway3_medium Ridgeway was a beast by the 2012 US Army All-American game (Wescott Eberts -- SB Nation).

At the time, Ridgeway denied his interest in A&M, but took a clandestine visit to College Station that included lying to some Texas reporters about what he was doing. In the end, however, he stuck with his commitment to Texas and signed with the Horns on Signing Day, but not before a major scare.

Had Reed and Brown decided to play their college football at Texas A&M, their prowess along the defensive line could have made a significant difference for a defensive unit that struggled mightily in 2013 and could do so again this season. Even Ridgeway could have played last year for the Aggies.

And what would it have taken to end up in Aggieland? New facilities? The family atmosphere recruits currently point to in College Station that recruits once saw in Austin? The move to the SEC? Johnny Football? One or two or three or all of the above?

What's apparent is that the current landscape is heavily favoring prospects choosing A&M over Texas, especially along the defensive line.

There's former Texas commit Daeshon Hall, who could be a breakout star this year after recording 29 tackles, two tackles for loss, and an interception as a true freshman. His loss was one of the reasons why the Horns completely missed at defensive end in the 2013 recruiting class.

There's former Texas target Myles Garrett, the defensive end who never gave the Horns the time of day in his recruitment, but was rated as the nation's top player last season by 247Sports. Perhaps Texas never would have had a shot at him in the old landscape, but the result is the same, all while the Horns only managed to land one defensive end in the 2014 class.

There's current A&M commit and Texas target Daylon Mack, the five-star defensive tackle from Gladewater who has been candid in talking about how he grew up a Texas fan. In some sense, he's the type of current-day Cedric Reed, an East Texas kid who grew up as a Longhorns fan but now sees more opportunity with the Aggies.

There's current A&M commit and Texas target Kingsley Keke, a defensive tackle with a similar build to Ridgeway who has significant potential.

At the time that Keke committed, that made two major in-state misses at a position of need. And while the addition of Cy Falls defensive tackle Du'Vonta Lampkin was extremely significant, much of the significance was tied to losing out on Mack and Keke.

Even in the best of times, the margins were remarkably thin for the Horns with some of the best defensive linemen in the state and now that margin has given way to a major advantage for the Aggies that will play out on the field in future years just as it has at Texas over the last several seasons.

But while the Horns wait to truly feel the effects of the current drastic shift in the recruiting landscape, there's still the equally powerful solace provided by the ability to watch Reed, Brown, and Ridgeway go to work under the new coaching staff on what could be the conference's best defensive line.

Get ready for the great JT Barrett-Tyrone Swoopes debate again

Just so y'all can be prepared...

If Texas Longhorns fans have learned one thing about quarterback recruiting since the Horns declined to take a signal-caller in the 2008 class to go all in on Garrett Gilbert in the 2009 class, it's that second-guessing about those decisions will continue for years.

With that in mind, Horns fans should get ready for another round of debate as Ohio State Buckeyes redshirt freshman JT Barrett gets set to take over the reigns of the Big 10 powerhouse following a season-ending shoulder injury to senior starter and potential Heisman contender Braxton Miller.

As some might remember, the 2013 class was quarterback-rich in the state of Texas, allowing plenty of options for the former coaching staff, which honed in on Whitewright product Tyrone Swoopes early in the process and declined to offer any other quarterbacks, including Barrett, Oklahoma's Cody Thomas, and current Texas Tech starter Davis Webb, who wasn't even really on the radar at that point out of Prosper.

Among others who may well surface for more fun revisionist history? Kenny Hill, anyone?

Much of the debate surrounded whether Texas should offer Barrett, who was known to have significant interest in the Longhorns.

Instead, former head coach Mack Brown and co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin took an early commitment at Swoopes in February of 2012 before struggles at The Opening and during Swoopes' senior season caused him to plummet down the rankings, with ESPN notably re-classifying him with the athlete tag.

A longtime Texas fan, Swoopes was a relatively easy sell at a time when it seemed like there was still plenty of time for Brown and his reconstructed staff to turn things around. If the ease of his recruitment was a selling point to the staff, it's at least somewhat understandable in the context of Swoopes as a five-star prospect by some services at that time.

Meanwhile, Barrett suffered a knee injury in early October of his senior season that ended his high school career, but managed to hold his ranking as the No. 100 player in the 247Sports rankings and the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country in the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Much smaller than Swoopes at around 6'2, Barrett had a relatively high 4.6% interception rate during his junior season, though he was a strong athlete with running ability and more developed mechanics and understanding of the game than

What perhaps ultimately made the difference for the staff in choosing between the two passers, per one report?

According to Chip Brown, then at Orangebloods, Harsin wanted to recruit other quarterbacks, but Brown was afraid of being "crucified" by the press and the fan base if he didn't take Swoopes.

At the time, all the easy comparisons with Swoopes were to Vince Young with their similar builds and methods of delivering the football, though most discerning fans understood the monumental separation between Houston Madison's competition level and what Swoopes say at tiny 2A Whitewright.

Similarly, the then-relatively new 247Sports Texas site was also quite vocal in asserting that Barrett at least deserved a shot, so there was hardly a media mind-meld on the issue.

And how silly would it be if Brown really had taken that into consideration over the best interests of the team? Silly, but also believable given the end of his tenure.

In pure evaluation terms, as much as Swoopes showed the incredible flashes of potential that have continued to define his performances at every stop with only modest improvement since Brown and staff made the decision to make him their quarterback take in the 2013 class, it was always clear that Barrett was a safer take.

The flipside was that while Barrett's ceiling was and is lower and his floor higher, Swoopes had and still has a higher ceiling and lower floor.

The relevance of that right now, of course, is that while Swoopes and true freshman Jerrod Heard are battling for the back-up quarterback position, Barrett is set to start for Ohio State in a matter of days and is likely in a better position than Swoopes to take over such a role.

And in the development cycle of Swoopes, that was not news and is not news now -- a more fair comparison will happen next season or the year after, when Swoopes will either prove that he was too much of a risk as a raw prospect or fulfills the potential that has been tantalizing so many for years now.

Of course, if Swoopes ends up getting beat out by Heard and transfers or changes position, the decision will quickly become moot.

And perhaps the potential for that to happen is truly an early and important salvo in the debate heavily favoring Barrett -- at the moment Swoopes is much closer to ending up at his floor as a quarterback than he is at reaching his ceiling.

Why is all this about ready to come up again even though Mack Brown is gone? Because that's how this shit works.

So, when it starts coming up again in a few weeks, at least this discussion right here already happened.
