In this edition of the Humidor, we get the details on the timeline and the targets for Texas’ next athletic director. We also provide an updated list for next weekend’s junior day, talk spring practice schedule, and talk about the way Herman and his staff groups his players.

Bush-Rogers 2018

If these two juniors were running for office, they’d get my vote.

One is a 6-foot-4 electric playmaker at the most important position on the field. The other is a 6-foot-5 freak with Kevin Durant’s wingspan and a 113.07 SPARQ rating at The Opening Regional in Houston two weeks ago. That’s a combination that unites both parties.

Inside the Gameplan: Rebuilding DBU in 2017

The reason the Big 12 successfully produces multiple 1k yard WRs and highly successful QBs every year becomes evident when you take the time to watch every player in a given year joining a Big 12 program, as I’ve done. The state of Texas in particular produces a multitude of talented skill athletes at the WR position.

It’s that time of year when we take a good look at the needs and available slots in the current class. Obviously this isn’t the official template, but it’s not like one even truly exists. Numbers are flexible up until the morning of National Signing Day, and needs are open-ended throughout the 2017 season.

Your high school son – let’s call him Luke – is 6-3, 215 pounds and can throw a football with the violence of John Elway and the touch of Tom Brady. He’s good-looking like his momma, who he loves dearly, of course. He’s smart, too, a teammate more coveted than ice cream in July.

This week’s Scoop talks coaching clinic news as the UT staff hung out in Aggieland (cringes), and updated Junior Day list, 1-on-1 with the next big thing out of East Texas, recruiting notes, and basketball talk for your Monday.

This week’s Notebook starts in DFW with a promising o-lineman, heads down to East Texas for a safety with bad intentions, and wraps up in Houston with perhaps the state’s top WR and safety. The Recruiting Notebook gets you caught up on Texas targets with burnt orange on their mind.
