Texas Goes Green

2018 is loaded instate at the cornerback position and Texas just received a commitment from one of, if not, the best.

Houston Heights cornerback Jalen Green committed to Texas today over offers from Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Clemson and many others. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound corner was highly coveted in the 2018 class.

The Stars at Night are big and bright, deep in the heart of Texas. So are the prospects headed to Austin today for UT’s final HS camp before fall camp begins on July 31st. We’ve got the roster with notes and tidbits in each invitee. It’s hot outside so come inside the Humidor where its loaded with info and goodies.

The Inside Scoop – 7/17/17

We’re pretty loaded with Scoopage on this fine Monday. Hopefully palindrome week is off to a nice start for you. If it isn’t, this Scoop should help.

The staff is not only pressing for 2018 commitments, it’s also extending an introductory handshake to many of the state’s best 2019 prospects. As these relationships strengthen, those handshakes turn into hugs and before you know it, a large portion of the 2019 class will be wrapped up by this time next year.

Halfway through the 2018 cycle, it is getting to the point (early as it may seem) to start to get to know the rest of the 2019 class. Sure, some elites have made their names known like Jordan Whittington, Arjei Henderson, and Brian Williams, but some of next years up-and-comers need an introductory moment.

If you’re unaware of how Texas has positioned itself for the class of 2018, this is your first day at IT. Welcome!

But what’s going on in the rest of the conference? From following general recruiting my suspicion has been the rest of the conference is recruiting better top to bottom than in years past, but after writing this it seems status quo overall. Some schools are up, some down, but overall it seems to even out versus previous cycles.
