University of Texas football signing list

February 3, 2010 6:18:09 PM PST
Texas went for defense to sign one of the top recruiting classes in the country, tossing in a quarterback with a familiar last name. The Longhorns signed 25 players Wednesday in a class rated as high as No. 2 in the country by some recruiting analysts.

Among the top players are Plano defensive lineman Jackson Jeffcoat, son of former Dallas Cowboys star Jim Jeffcoat, and linebacker Jordan Hicks of West Chester, Ohio.

Jeffcoat and Hicks were rated among the top players at their positions in the country.

Texas also signed quarterback Case McCoy, younger brother of former Longhorn Colt McCoy, who led Texas to last season's BCS championship game.
