The latest on Elijah Higgins

Despite his impressive offer list, Austin Bowie’s Elijah Higgins still feels like he has a lot to prove. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, he’s heard the talk about being a tight end and he’s not having it. That topic is largely a semantic one to me as his best utility is likely as an inside flexed receiver who moves around some. I doubt Jordan Reed cares about his positional designation, but as of now Higgins does care about that perception. Schools are recruiting him at receiver, but when Stanford and its rich tight end tradition comes calling, that makes one wonder.

The Inside Scoop – 4/16/18

We’re starting a big week. Today is the first day of the spring evaluation period. Coaches will be on the road soon. With one remaining spring practice, I anticipate the UT staff hitting all the stops. Latest on recruiting, spring game visitors, and Spring ball wraps up this week in the Scoop.

Fridays in the Humidor: 4/13/18

We’ve reached the penultimate weekend of spring football and it will be a quiet one on the 40 Acres. Coaches and players alike will be allowed to leave campus. Likewise, recruiting will also be quiet. We don’t expect any visitors, though you can never entirely rule that out.

Big recruiting weekend….but not for UT

Regional recruiting rivals are each set to host a solid list of visitors for their respective spring game weekends.

This will undoubtedly lead to some tense moments for the fretful sect of Texas recruitniks — the ones whose lachrymosity cascades down my beloved Prospects Board — but keep in mind Texas will hold its rebuttal next weekend, under the lights, and all to itself.
