Texas has a had a handful of uphill recruiting battles this cycle, with one of them being Conroe Oak Ridge’s Joseph Ossai.
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.
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.
Herman talks a lot about alignment. We debate what it means and what is or isn’t aligned behavior…until it starts to sound like a chiropractor CME seminar.
I think he means sound tactics informed by smart strategy.
Ian and I discuss satellite camps, how the 2018 defensive recruits fit, and Orgeron robbing a Little Debbie distribution plant.
From observing 2018 recruiting, in which Tom Herman has targeted Cameron Rising and Tanner McKee, we can tell Herman likes quarterbacks the Golden State has to offer. A third Southern California quarterback made his way to the radar when 2019’s David Baldwin made his way to Austin for camp.
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.
This week’s Scoop dives into UT’s satellite camps, new 2019 targets on the radar, latest on top targets – Cook, Ghirmai, Brown – the trio from Dallas Bishop Dunne, and more junior WRs to know. We finish up with hoops news two weeks into Summer Session I.
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.
