In the name of expediency I’m going to bullet the information. Insert your own biting wit and analysis.
With the Spring game just over a week away, we’ll take a closer look at the early confirmed visitors. With so many major programs holding this event on the same day, the prospects you see arrive in Austin next Saturday could be a valuable data point in the class of 2020 and beyond. Or it might not be, but that’ll be for us to discover.
UT’s Bru McCoy, Sam Ehlinger, and BJ Foster all were back at practice today. I did not see Kirk Johnson after it was announced yesterday he was being evaluated for a stinger. The team didn’t go through many 11-on-11 drills during the four open periods.
As you may know, we use percentages to periodically update our perception of UT’s standing with priority recruits.
We’ve talked to a number of sources, all of them know football very well. This is an amalgamation of those exchanges regarding the weekend that was in practice.
Tom Herman needed a versatile athlete in the 2020 class. He needed a guy who can tote the rock, catch passes in the flat, or pick up blitzers on third down.
You guys know the drill, it’s zero-sum, which is an important detail this week as the offensive line is struggling with the defensive line. That’s to be expected, but as you’ll read, there’s still plenty of optimism with Herb Hand’s group.
In an effort to bring you all the news as quickly as we can we split the recruiting and team portion as the players are still practicing this morning. We’ll get you the absolute latest on the team ahead of the Saturday scrimmage tomorrow.
