Signing day capsules in the Big 12

(Continued)

TEXAS

National rankings (Rivals 20, Scout 16 ).

Best in class: Jerrod Heard, qb, Denton, Texas

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.

TEXAS TECH

National rankings (Rivals 43; Scout 35).

Best in class: Patrick Mahomes, qb, Whitehouse, Texas.

Best of the rest: Justin Stockton, rb, Cibolo, Texas; Ian Sadler, wr, Argyle; Devin Lauderdale, wr, Houston; Nigel Bethel, db, Miami; Rika Levi, dl, South San Francisco, Calif.

Late addition: Shaquille Davis, ol, Ponomo, Calif.

One that got away: Zaycoven Henderson, dt, Longview, Texas (Texas A&M).

NOTE: "He's a winner," coach Kliff Kingsbury said of Mahomes. "You watch him play and he willed his team to victories over and over."

WEST VIRGINIA

National rankings (Rivals 38; Scout 40).

Best in class: Dravon Henry, db, Aliquippa (Pa.) HS.

Best of the rest: William Crest, qb, Dunbar HS, Baltimore. Donte Thomas-Williams, rb, Hillside HS, Durham, N.C.
