We dive into team info, talking QBs, attrition, and 2018’s class size. We also hit recruiting hard with Houston Lamar, big-time OL, and a 2020 RB. We finish with one of the most underrated prospects in the state. We present The Inside Scoop.

Fridays in the Humidor – 9/22/17

On Saturday Texas was who we wrote about, and who you read about in August. We saw why the Texas defense dominated the Texas offense all August.

Now the issue becomes, can Texas sustain its newfound defensive confidence and can the offense make strides week in and week out.

On Saturday we were treated to something we haven’t seen since 2014, quality and consistent linebacker play from the whole unit, rather than poor fundamentals and a sprinkling of athletic WOW plays. Plays were made at the line of scrimmage or behind it rather than 10 yards down the field. They played physical. It was awesome.

No two recruiting cycles are alike, and when you factor for starkly different approaches between Charlie Strong and Tom Herman, there’s quite a bit to chronicle. Compounding the interest; for the first time for college football, NSD is plural as we’ll have one that runs from December 20-22 along with the customary first Wednesday in February (2/7).
