Last week, Ian Boyd told us the Top 10 most important players in Tom Herman’s inaugural season. Today, he and I discuss the five guys nobody is talking about but should. From the hardest hitter, most difficult to tackle and hardest worker, here are the Longhorns you need to know about.
This month’s IT Magazine wraps up the highs and lows of 2016. More importantly, we meet new coach Tom Herman, go in-depth on the 10 most important players in the Texas program, and game-by-game thoughts on UT Basketball in 2016-17. Another superb job and special work by our Will Gallagher. Read it.
Texas and Tom Herman completed its football staff for 2017 today with the additions of Tim Beck (OC) and Stan Drayton (RB coach). Details on both and how Beck fits Herman’s offensive system.
Last week we took a look at some of the lesser known players in the program. This week we mined our sources, old and new, for information on some of the more well known players in the program heading into the Spring. You’ll see some overlap in this and last week’s Humidor. If we’re reiterating it’s because it comes from differing sources. So you know it’s good.
Let’s take a look.
It might be the dead period, but recruiting never takes a break. We’ve got news on old Texas targets, new names to know, we wrap up the UIL State Championships, prepare for a Christmas Eve announcement, and finish with Shaka looking for a point guard in the C/O 2018. It’s the Scoop, holiday edition.
The Scoop talks about UT’s new coach, checking in on future Longhorns, visitors from the weekend, a top QB target in 2019, and nice nuggets on a 4-star pass-rushing machine from H-Town and a sure-handed tight end from the Austin area. Also catching up with Kobe Boyce and 2018s that you could see stick rise next Spring.
Herman’s offense, the Applewhite impact, starting from behind on 2017 recruits, and a huge recruiting weekend coming to Austin this Saturday and Sunday makes for exciting times right before the NCAA Dead Period. We give you names, odds, and how Herman has no fear going after in-state committed prospects. This staff is working overtime, just like the squad at Inside Texas in the Humidor.
This week’s Inside Texas Roundtable looks at all scenarios for Texas this weekend as the No. 12 Oklahoma State Cowboys visit Austin.
Jesus, Eric, and members of the Inside Texas staff will answer questions throughout the weekend. Bring it.
This week’s Inside Scoop talks about the next head coach, a couple 2015 Qbs on the Texas radar, some recruiting names to remember, and hoops news.
