Charlie Strong's third National Signing Day with the Texas Longhorns was a successful one.  When the dust settled, Texas added 24 recruits and snagged the nation's 11th-best recruiting class (according to the 247Sports.com). **ESPN has the Longhorns recruiting class at 10th overall**

It was a success in more ways than one. Just 7 days ago, 247Sports had the Texas recruiting class ranked 38th in the nation and 4th in the Big 12. What a difference a week makes!

The University of Texas is the only school from Big 12 or Texas in the top 15 according to 247Sports. Send that to your Aggie friends.
