Off-season continues as the strength and conditioning staff readies the players for spring ball. The players are working hard and the proof is in the pictures circulating the internet. Also, UT is hosting a few key targets in 2019, 2020 recruiting classes and quotes from the newest Longhorn, T’Vondre Sweat.

Sweat to Texas

The game is won in the trenches, so Tom Herman and Oscar Giles looked to bolster the defensive line with the second commit of the 2019 class.

Huntsville DL T’Vondre Sweat committed to Texas today. He chose the Longhorns over Texas A&M, Baylor, Alabama, Arkansas and Oklahoma, among others.

Recruiting Notebook – 2/24/18

This week starts in North Houston with one of the state’s best corners, then down to Cuero for 5-star level athlete on both sides of the ball, swing over to ETX for an offensive lineman meaner than a pitbull, then finish in the ATX with the best WR in-state. It’s an all 2019 Recruiting Notebook.

Breaking down the Texas 2018 recruiting class

Since I’ve been breaking down every Big 12 class it only makes sense that I would include the Texas Longhorns, with their 2018 class parsed just as I have for their competitors in the conference.

The 2017 class, Tom Herman’s first at Texas, was an underrated success and for being a lower rated class it seems likely to punch above its weight. The 2018 class is a heavyweight group rated third nationally and first in the Big 12 by 247 and including much of the state’s top rated prospects and 19 Texans overall bolstered by seven out of state signees. Here’s how it should fit together into the Herman vision for the program.
