Lots to get to this week as the Longhorns tidy up preparations ahead of the short trip to Waco. We’ll cover the team from top to bottom — current players and red-shirts — and then finish up with some recruiting notes from our Eric Nahlin and Justin Wells.

Another huge game awaits us this weekend as Oklahoma State comes to town with its Grand Prix offense. The defense has a lot on its plate but I think the plan going in is one that could work, but will the offense be able to keep up?

We also drop the TEX-OSU recruiitng visitors list with insight. Check it out inside the Humidor.

The Inside Scoop – 10/16/17

In years past we’ve discussed the type of seasons Texas would need to have in order to keep recruiting going. Not all 8-4’s or 7-5’s are created equally. Losing close, winnable games, while leading in the 4th, is heartbreaking, but it also gives you hope that in the future those turn into close wins. That’s much different than going 7-5 or 8-4 with blowout losses.

For recruits, the feeling is extremely positive. To a man, they feel once they get to campus they can help the team get over the hump.

With the elite talent in Houston this cycle, Tom Herman and Texas were waiting for another domino to drop from H-Town. That next domino just dropped.

Houston Lamar defensive back D’Shawn Jamison committed to Texas today. Jamison chose Texas over competing offers from Baylor, Florida, Houston, and USC, among others.

It’s time for Fletchers corny dogs, overpriced stuffed animals, and a fist fight between the burnt orange and boomer Sooners.  Texas is hosting an impressive allotment of prospects, especially 2019, where UT is looking to make a dent in as soon as they finish up this Top 5 composite 2018 class.
