Practice Report – 8/20/17

We’re one Saturday from football. 13 days. 

As the Longhorns are getting closer to Maryland game prep, there are positions and rotations yet to be determined, including naming that elusive starting QB for the battle with Maryland on September 2nd.

Some quick hitters from yesterday’s final scrimmage, at least from the 1v1 perspective.

AUSTIN — Another camp, another successful event put on by the Texas Football staff on Friday night. When they weren’t dousing Tom Herman in the dunk tank, or having a giant water balloon fight on the field at DKR, the 2018 and 2019 prospects were competing in special events and getting a dose of what the future holds for the program on the 40 Acres.

One such prospect was 5-star DE DeMarvin Leal.

Texas and Tom Herman have not only recruited well out-of-state, they’re in a great spot for two of the best at their positions, Terrace Marshall and Luke Ford, for the Top 5 Class of 2018.

Tomorrow I’ll break down my conversation with Ford, but up first is Mr. Marshall.

This week’s Notebook starts in St. Louis at a premium spot, heads over to Kentucky for the nation’s fastest recruit, still heading east to see a versatile DB from the Peach State, then round-trips to Arizona for the country’s top JUCO TE. The Notebook finishes with notes/quotes from UT’s latest 2019 offer with a nasty disposition.
