An alum at work tells me that Mack Brown, who has always been Mr. February, has used his national championship to good advantage and gotten a huge jump on the 2007 class. A knock opposing coaches have used on Mack has been "he can't win the big one", but that is no longer applicable, with the Rose Bowl win over Michigan, getting by Ohio St. and Ok. last season, and the win over USC. My bud tells me the verbal commits are flowing in, about 15 so far, and nothing but pure quality. He said 5 of the top 6 O-linemen in the state are verbal commits, as is the top linebacker and tight end, plus a couple top running backs. Mack is making hay out of the national championship.
