We haven’t discussed much team of late for obvious reasons but there’s always a bit of excitement as the new signees make their way to campus. This affords us a good time to look at the 2019 team in full.
A lot of Scoop from DFW, Houston, and nationwide. Let’s get started.
As we approach the beginning of summer, the slow pace of the 2020 cycle will pick up speed. The early stages of the race are the climb before the plateau of July and finally the descent filled with curves, dangerous speeds, and potential glory. Not everyone has the legs for it, but the Texas staff has proven it does.
Details on top targets in 2020 and latest on Shaka Smart in the Humidor.
In the football-only facility at Denton Ryan there’s a wall of pictures of players who have gone on to the next level from the Raider football program. 2021 ATH Ja’Tavion Sanders will likely join his cousin, former Florida Gator defensive end Jarvis Moss, on that wall someday.
Running back evaluation is pretty tricky. It is for me at least, the driver of the Kyle Porter bandwagon. I believe Dana Holgorsen is about to steer us into a casino for a “pit stop” and that will likely be the end of our journey. The top prospects tend to have outstanding measurables in terms of 40 times or track times, but if you’re playing RB at all you’re probably a great athlete.
The Inside Texas staff is hosting a Q&A today. We’re talking recruiting, schemes, Texas in 2019, and everything in between. Get a dose.
Thought we were done on Monday? Think again. Inside Texas has notes on Texas’ newest addition, running back tea leaves, and conversations with targets at LB, WR, and DE in More Scoop.
Butler CC (El Dorado, KS) LB Juwan Mitchell loved his official visit in Austin last weekend. So he committed to Texas.
This week’s Scoop catches up with weekend visitors, including a JUCO LB on the UT radar, Horns’ targets at the State Track Meet, and OU commit looking in the ATX, and more in the Monday Scoop.
With the state track meet in town this weekend, coupled with a JUCO LB taking an official visit and a pair of 2021 defensive line targets from East Texas visiting, there always seems to be something going down in the ATX.
