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

New, 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).
