Tom Herman had plenty to talk about on Wednesday. He touched on his successful recruiting so far and his plans going forward, how special teams works in his program, and what running backs need to do over the rest of camp. He also provided updates on several key Longhorns nursing injuries.

Period four was the first look we were allowed to see.
