At a program like Nathan Chapman’s ProKick Australia, Australians who learn how to punt an American football learn without knowing too much about the game in general. Texas punter Michael Dickson is a prime example of this, learning about football in a way that immediately put his feet into the fire.

The past few years have been a period of major upheaval for Texas Longhorns football, including two head coaching changes. When Derek Warehime came with head coach Tom Herman from Houston, he became the third offensive line coach to work with the Class of 2015.

Since the first game of 2015, Connor Williams has played at an All-American level at left tackle. On the cusp of this third, and possibly final year on the Longhorn offensive line, Williams is accepting leadership responsibilities to bring Texas out of one of its worst stretches.

The staff is not only pressing for 2018 commitments, it’s also extending an introductory handshake to many of the state’s best 2019 prospects. As these relationships strengthen, those handshakes turn into hugs and before you know it, a large portion of the 2019 class will be wrapped up by this time next year.

Halfway through the 2018 cycle, it is getting to the point (early as it may seem) to start to get to know the rest of the 2019 class. Sure, some elites have made their names known like Jordan Whittington, Arjei Henderson, and Brian Williams, but some of next years up-and-comers need an introductory moment.

Do You Like Mixy Matchy Linebackers?

If you were a college running back and saw the Texas linebackers getting off of the game day bus, a little shudder of fear would run down your spine. Mostly because it’s July 13th and why is there a bus of Texas linebackers in front of my dorm room at Maryland?
