One day removed from National Signing Day and Texas Longhorns Co-Offensive Coordinator and Wide Receivers Coach Darrell Wyatt made his way to Kilgore to talk about the new signees and UT's future.
Texas A&M finished with the 8th-ranked class in the country on Wednesday while Texas fell to #15. The Longhorns are always a top 5 class under Mack Brown.
Wyatt had quite the audience as members of the Tyler-Longview Longhorn Club gathered at Country Tavern restaurant to hear him speak. The Longhorns signed 15 recruits on NSD, 18 starters this year.
Wyatt said the team's main focus for the recruiting class of 2013 was offense while last year, it was defense.
