With over 50 prospects on hand for Saturday’s Orange-White game, the feedback was good as the attendance was surprising.

And that’s one of the reasons for these scrimmages; to have fun, generate excitement in the program, and wrap up Spring ball in a positive manner. Mission accomplished.

So much recruiting packed into one place. Great job by the IT staff, and special thanks to Will Gallagher for yet another masterpiece put together.

The latest from a great Official Visit weekend on the 40 Acres. Relationships were built, questions answered, and potentially prospects convinced Austin is the place to take up residence. Also add a couple of minor team notes and the Houston Lamar bunch UT has in its sights. It’s a Sunday night Scoop.
