FORT WORTH — Texas coach Tom Herman and his staff just added another piece to the puzzle.

FW All Saints’ Max Cummins committed to Texas tonight. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder was recently offered by TCU and Baylor, and as soon as UT called, he came.

The Inside Scoop – Sunday Edition

The latest from a great Official Visit weekend on the 40 Acres. Relationships were built, questions answered, and potentially prospects convinced Austin is the place to take up residence. Also add a couple of minor team notes and the Houston Lamar bunch UT has in its sights. It’s a Sunday night Scoop.

What goes into an official visit?

We get asked this question every year at this time, just as we’ll get asked ‘what goes into a junior day’ next month. Official visits are the compilation of fun, business, and atmosphere. It’s the ultimate, and most importantly, the last time a prospect gets to see your school before he decides.

Fridays in the Humidor – 1/13/17

A bit of an exciting weekend looms with numerous visitors making their way to Austin as the cycle mercifully winds down. We don’t like to bother recruits while on their visit for obvious reasons but we’ll pass along anything of note we hear. Of course we’ll have a big recap when it’s all said and done.

But first, we’ll start with some light team notes and UT’s RB big board for 2018.
