Jake Raulerson, a 2011 U.S. Air Force Junior All-American, committed to Texas today, becoming the first recruit from the class of 2013 to make a verbal pledge to the Longhorns.

Raulerson made the announcement on Facebook.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound offensive lineman chose Texas over a host of other offers. He projects as one of the top linemen on either side of the ball from the Lone Star State in 2013.

Raulerson's commitment continues the momentum for Texas, which finished No. 2 overall in the CBS Sports Top 25 College Football Recruiting Rankings for its 2012 class, which featured top offensive linemen Kennedy Estelle and Curtis Riser.
