We’re 14 days from NSD. Just a handful of quick tidbits for your reading pleasure.
We’re 15 days until NSD. Which means a little over two more weeks of craziness, surprises, then full focus on the Class of 2018. Here’s a few notes and quotes on this hump day.
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.
How about a refresher as we head into the second-to-last official visit weekend? Eric Nahlin takes us position-by-position with two visit weekends left and the clock ticking down until National Signing Day.
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.
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.
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.
Today marks in the end of the dead period in recruiting. There can now be face-to-face contact. Here’s what we’re hearing on Omar Manning, Gary Johnson, Joshua Moore, and quotes from the newest visitor, Larrell Murchison.
This week’s Notebook starts in Rockdale with a rock star athlete, a DT destined to destroy worlds from North Houston, a dynamic athlete from H-town, and an ILB parked in the middle of Kansas. A handful of juniors and a very important ’17 JUCO athlete get evaluated today.
With the end of the dead period on our doorstep, let’s do a status check on some remaining targets with upcoming visits. Plus, new names headed to Austin this weekend.
