This week’s Scoop delivers the projected two-deep after a week of practice and scrimmage. We also begin the ETX FB Tour stopping by to visit Texas commits, UT targets, and potential future Longhorns, and finish with a hoops roster breakdown for Shaka Smart’s 2nd season in Austin. It’s Monday, Scoop Day.

The IT guys hit the road in Beaverton for The Opening and College Station for the State 7-on-7 Championships. We talk 5-stars, elites, and best of the best this week. Inside Texas is road tripping for the Scoop.

This week’s Scoop profiles the Longhorns satellite camps from this week. Eric was in Houston and Justin hits Dallas. We’ve got names, notes, quote, and who might be offer worthy. Plus, Preston looks at three new hoops offers from Shaka Smart and his staff as they start to build the 2017 class. The Inside Scoop is on the scene.

We play everyone’s favorite recruiting game; Percentages. Some of UT’s top targets have a busy summer and we’ll breakdown each. We also look at a few newer prospects to appear on the Longhorns radar with notes and quotes. We take a closer look at what Texas Basketball will look like in 2016-17, and a surprise visitor is on campus today. So much goodness, so much Scoop.
