Texas has racked up in the last 10 days commitments from the state’s best player and corner in Jalen Green, and two vertical threat receivers in Al’vonte Woodardand Brennan Eagles. We’re seeing recruiting done at an extremely high level. It’s not all just social media show business; the staff puts in the hours and effort.

Inside the Gameplan: Roschon Johnson

Obviously one of the big changes that Mack Brown brought to the recruiting game was snatching up juniors early after the season ended before they were even seniors. That required some projection on the part of the Texas staff, but projection is already the name of the game and they could at least work off a year of varsity film + camp work to get a sense of what a kid might become at Texas.

Speaking of excitement, that was a pretty exhilarating Friday for recruitniks and fans. It was also a blast to share the Jalen Green commitment with the remaining attendees of the happy hour. That was cause for yet another final final.

AUSTIN — Another camp, another successful event put on by the Texas Football staff on Friday night. When they weren’t dousing Tom Herman in the dunk tank, or having a giant water balloon fight on the field at DKR, the 2018 and 2019 prospects were competing in special events and getting a dose of what the future holds for the program on the 40 Acres.

One such prospect was 5-star DE DeMarvin Leal.
