In State vs Out of State, Notes from check-in and mini-camp, and stadium atmosphere in the Scoop, Part II. I have some random news and notes from the last few days to pass along.
On Wednesday I made my way to the Fort Bend Ridge Point spring game. As my luck would have it, TE Mustapha Muhammad, LB Chad Bailey, and QB Aaron Allen all sat out. I understand, but I was hoping to gauge Bailey in space and wanted to see Allen throw (RP is still in the […]
One of the more interesting prospects in the class of 2019 is Klein Collins running back, Isaiah Spiller. As a sophomore, Spiller helped KC knock off area power Westfield before their fantastic season ended in heartbreaking fashion to eventual champion Desoto. Collins led 31-21 heading into the 4th quarter. Not yet a junior, Spiller is […]
I haven’t done percentages in a while, so let’s do that to re-calibrate where the current cycle sits, at least through my eyes.
When you visit Westfield, there are always a lot of prospects to talk about. Of course, I went there to see and talk to star defensive tackle Keondre Coburn, but I also wanted to get some insight into Texas running back signee, Daniel Young.
Alief Taylor DE/OLB, Joseph Ogunbanjo, is a great reminder of how important spring ball of your junior year can be for recruiting.
We all have our hobbies. Some of you fish. Some of you cook, or at least over salt and burn. Some watch movies to the point they know what noir and Das Boot means. Impressive.
I always liked recruiting, at least since I started reading Dave Campbell’s upon moving to Texas. A nerdy recruitnik – not unlike W.W. McClyde and his vicissitudes – I was hobbying like an SOB on Saturday.
The final installment of this undertaking underscores my lede: perhaps no position in sports is more underappreciated than offensive line.
What makes this position group so interesting is Texas has missed on a number of top-end talents the last few cycles, yet wide receiver is still probably the deepest position, if not the most talented — that would be the secondary.
A lot of names, but only one likely headliner, the Texas defensive line has a nice mix of complementary parts, veterans, and talented youth.
