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.
Houston Lamar remains one of the best high school programs within greater Houston. Accordingly, their team boasts several players with Power 5 talent. Tom Herman and Texas decided to extend an offer to two Lamar juniors, defensive back D’Shawn Jamison and wide receiver Al’vonte Woodard.
This week’s Scoop wraps up the Army All-American Bowl with 2018s to watch. We talk about the newest staff addition, Trey Haverty, AD news, and more recruiting, including a new target.
BRENHAM (TX) — It was always a dream of Brenham OLB Marqez Bimage to become a Longhorn. Today, it became a reality.
There might not be much popping for UT in San Antonio this week, but there’s excitement on the 40 Acres and more on the way. We talk to recruits about recent hires, Tim Beck and Stan Drayton, and break down possibly the most important recruit for Texas in the Class of 2017. It’s Hermandor time on this Friday.
Justin and Ian break down each new coach for Tom Herman’s first staff in Austin. We also discuss the Class of 2017 to Lenny Kravitz’ Believe.
One of the interesting early actions of the Tom Herman staff was to pursue new offensive line options rather than to bring along any of the players currently committed to Houston. This gave us keen insight into who they had atop their Houston board, but were unable to land, likely because of the Houston brand rather than through any real fault of their own.
This month’s IT Magazine wraps up the highs and lows of 2016. More importantly, we meet new coach Tom Herman, go in-depth on the 10 most important players in the Texas program, and game-by-game thoughts on UT Basketball in 2016-17. Another superb job and special work by our Will Gallagher. Read it.
With only one commit playing in the Army All-American Bowl, our focus turns to Texas targets playing in this game, including one Tom Herman recently extended an offer to.
After Monday’s first Army All American bowl practice, I was able to catch up with Lancaster WR Omar Manning. He talks TCU, Tom Herman, and the Texas Longhorns.
