A fun thing about recruiting is evaluation and seeing a staff’s big board materialize before you. It’s one of the reasons people geek as hard as Fuddward on the NFL draft. Often times staff’s are forced to give away their intentions through offers but in recent years offers aren’t what they use to be, otherwise Texas would already have its quarterback in the class, imo.

There were big plays, potentially important injuries, and big hits. Physicality was in full effect.

Pretty much every single important internal and external aspect of recruiting is going UT’s way currently, save overall in-state talent level, which is beyond the staff’s control. While these aspects haven’t led to any in-state commitments (that’s not a bad thing, they simply aren’t reaching) thus far, it’s led to quite a buzz with the in-state elites.
