More OOS offers. More targets trending up and down for the Horns. A handful of notes & quotes from recruits. Early list for targets attending the May 28th mini-camp in Austin. Let’s get caught up on the latest in Texas recruiting.
It’s one factor that brought out over a dozen college coaches on the evening. Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, Ole Miss, Baylor, Duke, Tulane, and UNLV were among the contingent on hand. All were there to find talent, mingle with fellow CFB coaching brethren, and see Mr. Wright.
This week’s Notebook starts around H-town for a top line tight end and elite defensive end. Then swing down to Louisiana for a high-potential offensive tackle, then hit the west coast for a 4-star quarterback in Cali. The Recruiting Notebook is here.
AUSTIN — While the Longhorns had an eventful April in recruiting, the momentum has carried over into May.
Texas lands 4-star kicker Cameron Dicker today from Lake Travis. He’ll join teammate Cade Brewer when the C/O 2018 enrolls next June. For Dicker, it was an easy choice.
ARP, TX — Making the rounds through East Texas can be a journey of backroads, old landmarks, plenty of beautiful scenery, and finding the elite athletes that are prevalent in this region. Two such prospects reside in Arp and Carthage. Two potential difference makers that brings the nation’s top college football coaches here to persuade them to join those programs. Arp’s Demarvion Overshown and Carthage’s Keaontay Ingram are two such players. Today, it’s Overshown.
While Texas RB D’Onta Foreman was celebrating going to the Houston Texans in the 3rd round, the other Longhorn prospects were in wait-and-see mode. As soon as the 2017 NFL Draft ended, five UT football players received phone calls. Four signed undrafted free agent deals, while one will attend two mini-camp tryouts.
The Texas City native is going back to Southeast Texas.
Texas RB D’Onta Foreman was selected 89th overall in the third round by the Houston Texans. The junior rushed for 2028 yards and 15 touchdowns before declaring for the draft after his junior year.
Justin and Ian breakdown the Orange-White scrimmage, things we liked, things we didn’t, and all to the Bar-Kay’s.
It’s the 70’s funk podcast your parents never told you about.
This week’s Notebook starts in God’s country – East Texas – with a dual-threat QB flying under the radar of sorts, a linebacker from Florida with good genes, a slot receiver with good wiggle, and a young TE that’s on everyone’s radar. We got you covered in the Recruiting Notebook.
The headliner at this year’s Texas Coaches Clinic couldn’t have been any bigger. With his track record for success, not only on the field, but in his evaluations and staff hires, Patriots’ coach Bill Belichick was as advertised. I spoke to a handful in attendance last night and the response was as expected; enamored and pretty surreal. I’ll also add some practice notes from former players and the differences in Herman’s way and Mack’s/Charlie’s way, and scrimmage tidbits from this afternoon.
