Sorry guys but Texas is killing it.
Kent Perkins 4*, 96, #2 rated OT http://247sports.com/Player/Kent-Perkins-229
Jake Raulerson 4*, 96, #3 rated OT http://247sports.com/Player/Jake-Raulerson-12770
A'Shawn Robinson 4*, 95, #7 rated OT http://247sports.com/Player/AShawn-Robinson-11314
Darius James 4*, 95, #1 rated C http://247sports.com/Player/Darius-James-7329
Texas is recruiting Jake Raulerson as a DE.
That's even crazier that he's rated so high at OT.
Arik Armstead was rated that high as a OT last year but wanted to play DE so he dropped in the rankings.
I think they wanted Robinson at DT.
I've seen all players mentioned highlight tapes, plus UM commits. Yes all the players are top notch but I think UM might have a meaner and nastier line than Texas but UT is ranked higher. I commend both teams on freakin' awesome offensive lines, excellent running games are in our futures.

I don't know much about Texas' recruiting but like others have said, one or two of these guys will be on the D-line. Given we have five that will surely be O-linemen, I think that we have the best O-line commits. It is Texas, though; they don't even have to try to recruit with all the talent around the area.
I know they have James as the #1 ranked Center but Im sticking to what I have been saying Kugler will be the top center in this class
It might be because Kugler mostly played T or G last year.
Yea but he will b a Center for us and a damn good one when it is all said and done he will be the best center out of this class
You are correct. Raulerson as DE and Robinson as DT.
I think it would be alot smarter to categorize these kids in the position that they will play in college it would be a more accurate rating
Probably a Homer, but I'm saying Kugler is the best center in the class. If you gave me a pick of anyone in the nation, I'm going with Kugler.
could not agree more been saying it for months now was really dissapointed when I thought he would be a sparty and didnt think we were on him that hard then boom made my day wouldnt trade him for any other oline recruit out there
Through an interview from ESPN in early Feb, I believe Raulerson said he was being recruited at TE.....either way it wont be purely O-Line
Looks like Texas has got a great class coming in too. It will be fun to see how both lines develop over the coming years.
Yeah but you have to remember these rankings are mostly from last year and were made before we knew he was going to come in as a center.
Not hard to recruit these kids when they all want to play at Texas.
well isnt that the analysts job to project were they are going to play and then rank them. I mean everybody knows Kugler is an interior lineman so why not rank him there? Look they had Kalis at tackle all year and he is obviously a guard it just doesnt make sense to me
o and by the way Im not trying to take anything away from the wonderful recruiting job they are doing down in texas
I love the stars next to a prospect as much as the next guy, but the last 2 OL hauls for Michigan are tough to beat in my eyes.... TONS of versatility and guys that are built to compete as true frosh.... I would assume that Kugler is the only one that shows up to Michigan south of 300lbs.... Love this staffs ability to identify and land top OL
