Hitting the HS football camp scene (ETSN Combine, Elite 7 V series/Mike Vick Camp) this weekend, Texas looking out-of-state more, latest on Wright, Epps, Lake Travis rebuilding, and Bryon Hobbs. The Scoop tells all.

It’s one factor that brought out over a dozen college coaches on the evening. Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, Ole Miss, Baylor, Duke, Tulane, and UNLV were among the contingent on hand. All were there to find talent, mingle with fellow CFB coaching brethren, and see Mr. Wright.

We all have our hobbies. Some of you fish. Some of you cook, or at least over salt and burn. Some watch movies to the point they know what noir and Das Boot means. Impressive.

I always liked recruiting, at least since I started reading Dave Campbell’s upon moving to Texas. A nerdy recruitnik – not unlike W.W. McClyde and his vicissitudes – I was hobbying like an SOB on Saturday.

While the 2018 class is coming together quite nicely, let’s take an early look at the 2019 Texas targets and the relationships being built. While there are roughly 12-14 spots left in 2018, the 2019 class could and should be Herman’s biggest class in Austin to this point.

Here’s who they love, like, and will further evaluate. Also, some potentially huge hoops recruiting news. It’s a two-Scoop kind of week.
