Class Rewind: Mack Brown's 2003 class

Counting down to national signing day on Feb. 1, HornsNation will look back at each of Mack Brown’s Texas recruiting classes.

Mack Brown didn’t look beyond the borders in 2003.

Every signee -- all 18 of them -- was from Texas, which falls in line with Brown’s philosophy of locking up the state first.

“We will always look hard at the guys in state first and if we can't find the perfect fit, then we will go out of state to fill our needs," he said on signing day back in 2003 and has repeated maybe 10,000 times since.
