Lots of photosynthesis in this Humidor as the lines of communication were filled with burnt orange UV rays this week.
This week’s Recruiting Notebook focuses on defensive back targets for the Longhorns. Starting in Houston, then north on I-45 to Arlington, a quick stop for an underclassman in Austin, then back to Arizona for an elite safety. The Notebook travels well.
Latest news on top UT targets Vernon Broughton, Bryson Washington, Latrell McCutchin and more. Jump in on a Tuesday.
The Texas staff has Willie Nelson on their playlists this week as they travel the country, checking in on prospects and recruiting targets. We catch up with a few priorities on the big board for 2020, including a new offensive lineman and more in the Scoop.
Things will be a little quiet on the team front until the new arrivals get to Austin in early June, but we’ll continue to plug away and try and ask sources questions we have when they arise.
Ian and I discuss the offense and defense by scheme and position. I tidy up with a bit of recruiting.
The aftermath from the Made In Texas weekend that included a packed Bevo Blvd., a well-attended spring game, and a Ludacris concert is slowly starting to rise up. Priority guys know they are priorities, and you’ll begin to see official visitors head to Austin starting on May 3rd for UT’s first OV weekend.
After the dust settles from the spring and before the evaluation period where coaches take to the road en masse, I’ll more thoroughly reset the landscape.
For now I’ll offer some quick thoughts. The shorter version is not much has changed since I wrote about the tension between UT-OU-A&M.
New offers, first-time visitors, and actual football on the Forty Acres. Big weekend in Austin means a big Inside Scoop.
Like in recent weeks, the team portion will follow as soon as we have it.
For now, the prospects planning to be in Austin on Saturday. Southern hospitality…aka the list.
