AUSTIN — Tom Herman has attributes he prefers for slot receivers in his offense. It’s safe to assume a prospect with 4.33 (40) speed fits his preferences.

That’s one reason Louisville (KY) Trinity wide receiver Rondale Moore committed to Texas today. Moore, one of the fastest wide receivers in the country, chose Texas over competing offers from Kentucky, Ohio State, Purdue, Penn State, and Pittsburgh, among others.

As you could probably glean from the various mediums of social media, the pool party was a resounding event. Said one in attendance, “I don’t know how a parent or player was there and doesn’t think Texas isn’t the place for them.” This event was successful at recruiting whole families.

We talk to some of the top recruits in attendance, a couple new offers, and keeping tabs on back-up plans for the UT staff in the Scoop.

We’ll touch on UT’s big visit weekend, with one out-of-state stud already in town. We’ll touch on team, but it’s still a bit early in the Summer I session to glean much.

Today we’ll focus on the weekend but also expect a lot of information unloaded in the Scoop on Monday. Recruiting fun times are hear again, as illustrated by the finish to this offering.

While Tom Herman and the UT coaching staff continue to blaze the recruiting trail, the program is taking full advantage of the allotted camps they’re allowed to hold each summer. Four on-campus events and four satellite camps (ETX, Georgia, Las Vegas, and Lafayette) will keep the coaches busy throughout June. Here’s some notes/quotes from Herman, one of his newest commits, and a ton of talent on the Texas radar.

In this edition of the Humidor, we dive into a little bit of state politics and what’s going on at the top of the UT System. We travel through East Texas to learn how Texas picked up two of the best commits the region has to offer in 2018 before finishing up with the lay of the current recruiting land. Happy Friday.
