Texas No.5 in the Top 25 of Signing Day 2009

Mack Brown had 20 prospects signed by noon today, including top Texas prospects, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and defnsive lineman Alex Okafor.

Texas landed three in-state five-star recruits in Gilbert, Okafor and offensive lineman Mason Walters. Further bolstering that in-state dominance, the Longhorns landed one of the state's best defenders in Calvin Howell, a great possession receiver in Greg Timmons, a jumbo athlete in Chris Whaley and a shut-down corner in Marcus Davis. Texas also added depth to the offensive line beyond Walters with Thomas Ashcraft, Garrett Porter and Paden Kelley and two of the nation's best tight ends in Barrett Matthews and Trey Graham. After Oklahoma snatched up some of the state's best in 2008, the Longhorns locked down the state in 2009.

The Longhorns let one get away however when they lost LB/DE Jarvis Jones out of Columbus, GA. Jones was a late change and is heading to USC.
