LAKE TRAVIS, TX — Playing quarterback at Lake Travis is a big deal. The position carries the pressure of leading one of Texas’ top high school programs, and the expectations, adding another star to the LT logo, are no small undertaking.
Texas coaches on the road, recruits reactions post-Spring game, and more. If yesterday’s Scoop wasn’t enough, get some more.
Tons of post-Spring game weekend stuff including team news, notes/quotes from some of the top prospects in attendance, and more. Get some Scoop.
A packed spring game visitor list and Hoops notes on an 2019 Austin-area big man and visiting grad-transfer combo guard in Part II of the Humidor.
Or, college entrance interview.
With the Houston Under Armour All American combine being held at Westfield this past Sunday I had a feeling I’d see 2018 UA All-American Keondre Coburn. That bore out and offered the perfect time to see how he’s been spending his final weeks as a high school student-athlete before embarking on college.
AUSTIN — Texas is set to host a number of top targets for its annual Orange-White scrimmage. We have the current list and names are being added daily. Here’s the latest.
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.
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.
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.
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.
