A look at a few prospects who have popped up on the radar recently at tackle.
Just emptying the notebook on Myron Warren, B-Backer, Caleb Johnson, running back, Ladarius Henderson, and Javonne Shepherd.
There are going to be ways to position itself for success in that Texas wasn’t able to last season, simply by being a program truly on the rise. For now, it’s the job of the staff to keep winning and the recruiting staff to keep gathering information on prospects and their situations.
The Texas offense may not have improved at the rate some might have liked, and to be sure it still has its struggles, but it’s hard not to notice real improvement over last year. With the last two weeks resulting in high publicity victories at home, recruiting momentum is within the staff’s grasp. With that in mind I wanted to update this post from July 5th. New commentary is in red.
Below are guys who were ranked in the composite top 100 for their senior year.
Prepare to be surprised at the amount of players who didn’t produce as you might have thought, though there is still time for guys in the most recent classes.
f it could go wrong, it did go wrong for the Port Neches-Groves Indians last Friday night. But, while watching their two players of interest, senior Texas quarterback commit Roschon Johnson and junior offensive tackle Jaylen Garth, I was still able to see a whole lot of things that went right.
Huntsville took the victory rather easily, 31-14, and the box score wasn’t pretty (17-32 for 191 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception) for Johnson, though it wasn’t indicative of his play.
Let’s talk a little 2020 recruiting.
Normally I don’t concern myself with outcomes of high school games as much as I do watching individual players, but Friday night’s game between state powers North Shore and Katy afforded me the opportunity to do both.
There’s no excuse for the team no-showing versus Maryland. The total lack of readiness can only fall on the shoulders of Tom Herman and as far as I could tell he fell on the sword in the press conference.
The team played incredibly slow and you could even see it in their timid movements early on. They were running in mud because they were thinking slowly — again.
When I write that Texas finally has talented seniors again, I primarily mean that on the defensive side of the ball where 8 are set to start versus Maryland. With those players set to exit after this campaign, on-field development within the season, as well as adding players capable of helping in 2019 is on Todd Orlando’s to-do list in preparation for next year.
