WRTS? How the major football schools in Texas stack up for 2015 recruiting

New, 49 comments

Let's look at 2015 commitments to schools in the state of Texas so far.

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

There has been a lot of boasting and hand-wringing over the #WRTS (We Run This State) hashtag that Texas A&M recruits, coaches, and fans have tweeted. Longhorn mouthpiece Geoff Ketchum used the hashtag to mock Aggie fans earlier this week. Is Texas A&M really dominating recruiting in the state this year or is the hashtag just a social gadget?

I looked up the commits to Texas A&M, Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, and TCU on 247Sports to get a snapshot of the 2015 classes so far. Specifically, I am interested in composite ratings and which other schools in the state of Texas offered commits.

The results for each school are shown below. Texas A&M has the most commitments at 13. These players have the highest average rating (.92 / 3.85 stars) and the most offers from other schools in Texas (31).
