The Texas Longhorns lost out on a key recruit in the 2014 recruiting class. Safety Nick Harvey from Lancaster (Tex.) verbally committed to the Texas A&M Aggies today. He also had offers from schools like Texas, LSU Tigers, Oklahoma Sooners, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Arkansas Razorbacks.
Harvey is the third committed member of the Aggies' 2014 class. He joins linebacker Josh Walker from Gilmer (Tex.), who also possessed a Texas offer, and cornerback Cedric Collins from Dallas (Tex.) Skyline. Harvey is currently the highest rated of the three, ranking 38th nationally in the 247 Composite rankings.
There is some consternation amongst Texas fans and recruitniks that "Old Mo" is firmly entrenched with the Aggies right now. For example, immediately following Harvey's announcement on Twitter, fellow 2014 DB recruit Jamal Adams from Lewisville (Tex.) Hebron tweeted the following:

Well, it's not everybody, but that's certainly a perspective. The Aggies expect to close strong with the 2013 class, building upon an unexpectedly good 10-2 year, their first in the SEC. And with head coach Kevin Sumlin and star freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel firmly entrenched in College Station for the near future, the Aggies should be considered a major player in upcoming recruiting classes.
