Texas remains college football recruiting battleground?

California dominates the Pac-10 in similar fashion as Texas is the top feeder state for the Big 12 – 106 of 226 high school players signed by the Pac-10 schools in February were from California – so it would have been a tight fit for the Pac-10 schools to split their recruiting emphasis between California and Texas.
Other conferences such as the SEC, which signed only 14 Texas players in 2010, or the Big Ten, which signed 10, might have moved into Texas in larger numbers had the Texas schools moved west or had A&M joined the SEC.
