UT’s pursuit of its signal-caller for 2018 is close to entering the Spring evaluation period. Three QBs will be in Austin this week so let’s look at each.
A fun thing about recruiting is evaluation and seeing a staff’s big board materialize before you. It’s one of the reasons people geek as hard as Fuddward on the NFL draft. Often times staff’s are forced to give away their intentions through offers but in recent years offers aren’t what they use to be, otherwise Texas would already have its quarterback in the class, imo.
This week’s Scoop dives into Saturday scrimmage and recruiting info, plus notable notes from the Under Armour camp in Cedar Hill on Sunday. We talk to recruits after the Round Up weekend, and potential shooting guard prospect visits Shaka and the Drum.

AUSTIN – On a gorgeous sunny day at DKR, the Texas Longhorns held their Student Appreciation Day and first scrimmage of the Spring. While the crowd was small, the enthusiasm was large as people got to see outside of an expanded social media contingent what Tom Herman’s been cooking in his laboratory since his arrival in December. There were big plays, potentially important injuries, and big hits. Physicality was in full effect.
It’s Round Up weekend in Austin and a handful of UT’s top targets will be there visiting and watching the Horns’ first Spring scrimmage. We’ve got practice notes, recruiting info, and a look at each prospect in this week’s Humidor.
Pretty much every single important internal and external aspect of recruiting is going UT’s way currently, save overall in-state talent level, which is beyond the staff’s control. While these aspects haven’t led to any in-state commitments (that’s not a bad thing, they simply aren’t reaching) thus far, it’s led to quite a buzz with the in-state elites.
Austin, Texas was just another stop along a road trip of a few of the best college football programs in the country. Luckily for the Wrays, it’s a family thing
This week’s Scoop comes off of Spring Break with tons of news/notes from the Under Armour Camp on Sunday, latest on some of the top targets, and a potential visitor list for Saturday’s practice could yield profits soon. Plus, a Hoops Scoop you don’t want to miss.
