Best of the rest: Poona Ford, dt, Hilton Head, S.C.

Late addition: Chris Nelson, dt, Lakeland, Fla.

One that got away: Sione Teuhema, de, Keller, Texas

NOTE: Coach Charlie Strong wasn't hired to replace Mack Brown until Jan. 6, which meant he had to scramble to hold on to some previous commitments and lure others. The class won't be considered as strong compared to what Texas fans are used to, but no one will care if the Longhorns win on the field.
