HOUSTON – Everyone knows that recruiting trends are like the stock market.
There are ups and downs. There are trends. When it comes to recruiting it follows that same pattern as there are years where more talent stays home and in other years the majority of the best talent leaves the borders of the Lone Star State.
Well, the best of the 2020 class of Houston recruits seem to be trending towards leaving Texas.
This isn't the first time that power programs outside of Texas – which has Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Texas Tech, SMU, North Texas, Rice, University of Houston, UTEP, UTSA as quality programs to go play college football at – haven't been able to lure the best from the state.
