As you could probably glean from the various mediums of social media, the pool party was a resounding event. Said one in attendance, “I don’t know how a parent or player was there and doesn’t think Texas isn’t the place for them.” This event was successful at recruiting whole families.

We talk to some of the top recruits in attendance, a couple new offers, and keeping tabs on back-up plans for the UT staff in the Scoop.

The Pool Party recap

One of the best ways to enjoy at hot summer day is to call a few friends over, open up the grill, and hang out by the pool.

Texas football took this notion to heart today as Tom Herman and his staff hosted the Texas Heat Wave pool party on campus in Austin.

We’ll touch on UT’s big visit weekend, with one out-of-state stud already in town. We’ll touch on team, but it’s still a bit early in the Summer I session to glean much.

Today we’ll focus on the weekend but also expect a lot of information unloaded in the Scoop on Monday. Recruiting fun times are hear again, as illustrated by the finish to this offering.

The 2015 recruiting class was one of the most athletic collections of defensive players that the Longhorns had signed in this decade. Malik Jefferson headlined the group and was joined, by order of 247 ranking, Anthony Wheeler, Holton Hill, Kris Boyd, DeShon Elliott, Davante Davis, P.J. Locke, and Breckyn Hager to round out their defensive backfield class. Now in year three we are finally seeing how the pieces fit together.

One of the highly sought current recruits reportedly stated that his impression of UT football has changed dramatically over the course of a single year. He was comparing the practices of coach Strong opposed to coach Herman’s. Herman demands intensity and constant attention to detail with competitive inspiration built into every drill all over the field. He mentioned coach Strong’s practices from last year were still and dead in his opinion.
