We’re starting a big week. Today is the first day of the spring evaluation period. Coaches will be on the road soon. With one remaining spring practice, I anticipate the UT staff hitting all the stops. Latest on recruiting, spring game visitors, and Spring ball wraps up this week in the Scoop.
We’ve reached the penultimate weekend of spring football and it will be a quiet one on the 40 Acres. Coaches and players alike will be allowed to leave campus. Likewise, recruiting will also be quiet. We don’t expect any visitors, though you can never entirely rule that out.
Team news post-scrimmage, injury report, tons of recruiting post-visit, and all the info you need after Sunday’s Under Armour regional in Cedar Hill including where Texas stands with some of its top 2019 targets. The Scoop tells all.
After catching up with multiple sources we’ll bullet point you some takeaways from today’s effort.
Someone noted recently that this has been a boring spring. I agree with that, and I think it’s a good sign. Aside the intrigue of the offensive line, the roster is mostly set. Now it’s about install, scheme, and execution.
Jordan is joined by fellow Longhorns Dylan Fritelli, Doug Ghim (a) and Jhonattan Vegas and most of the world’s top players this week at the 82nd Masters. Played on the iconic Augusta National GC course (7,435 yards, par 72), this will be an eagerly anticipated start to the 2018 major championship season with a number of top players nearing top form.
Noted player’s coach Tom Herman moved the practice up a few hours to accommodate players who wanted to go home for Easter weekend. Much of the team is taking advantage of that.
AUSTIN — Texas will have a big need at linebacker heading into the 2019 season. De’Gabriel Floyd’s committment today will help address that need.
2019 Westlake Village (CA) Westlake LB De’Gabriel Floyd committed to Texas today. Floyd had offers from USC, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Notre Dame among others.
Chris Del Conte making moves. Practice notes that you need. Weekend recruiting visitors. And another grad transfer looking at Austin. Enjoy the holiday weekend. Enjoy the weather. Enjoy family. Enjoy the Humidor.
Spring practice has begun, technically.
The first day in pads will be tomorrow. The NCAA mandates it be ‘thud tempo’ but that often turns into thug (in an endearing way) tempo with the real hitters.
