Listening to Christmas music this morning in the Wells’ house, I’ve got a couple recruiting notes to drop this morning while sipping on this egg nog waiting for Army-Navy. Just added Sunday updates on new offer and surprise visitors.
Here are some notes for the big official visit weekend.
Our Justin Wells and Ian Boyd and talk everything Texas coach Tom Herman. What he brings to Texas, his offensive/defensive philosophy, staff hires, and latest on recruiting news to the theme – Major Tom.
While Eric so eloquently described the new staff kicking up dust on the recruiting trail, I’ve gathered a few notes and quotes as Herman’s Hermits continue to run up the gas card expense account from Bellmont.
One thing I’ve noticed with the new staff that’s vastly different than Strong’s first go around are the established relationships with the prospects and new UT coaches inside the state. Just talking to kids in the last week, it’s very apparent that this staff built bonds with prospects they may never have had a shot with at UH, but now that they’re in Austin, are looking a little better.
Year 1 is in the books for UT’s starting QB, Shane Buechele.
The freshman signal-caller earned the starting nod in Week 1 and never let it go. He finished his first season on the 40 Acres with ups and downs.

It’s bowl eligibility and finishing Strong in this edition of the Inside Texas Podcast.
