Will Leaving The Big XII Hurt Nebraska In Recruiting The State of Texas?

Everyone knows Texas consistently produces the most high school talent in the country.  Nebraska is not impervious to this information and currently has six verbal commitments out of the state of Texas, five Rivals 4-stars and a Rivals 3-star.  With a national ranking of 8th by Rivals, 10th by ESPN and 12th by Scout, the current 2011 class is shaping up to be Pelini's best since he's been in Lincoln.

Nebraska's coaching staff is filling needs with this class getting commitments from offensive lineman Givens Mordi Price and defensive backs Charles Jackson and Tevin Mitchel.  While filling needs, they've also managed to grab two of the most electrifying playmakers in the state with running back Aaron Green and quarterback Jamal Turner.  However, the player I'm most excited about seeing is linebacker David Santos.  David's undersized at 6' - 195lbs, but he hits like a dumptruck falling off of the Empire State Building, look for him to make an immediate impact on special teams next year.

Nebraska's coaching staff knows where it's bread is buttered and has continued to recruit Texas well.  Nebraska currently has 25 players from the Lone Star State on their roster, by far the most from any state not named Nebraska.  The coaching staff has made major inroads in Texas so I don't suspect we'll see a significant drop in the number of players Nebraska's able to sign.  The B1GTEN Network will also come in pretty handy, I assume.

While we won't know the answer to the aforementioned question for a few years, it would appear that, for now, the answer would be "No."
