When you visit Westfield, there are always a lot of prospects to talk about. Of course, I went there to see and talk to star defensive tackle Keondre Coburn, but I also wanted to get some insight into Texas running back signee, Daniel Young.
Alief Taylor DE/OLB, Joseph Ogunbanjo, is a great reminder of how important spring ball of your junior year can be for recruiting.
Picking up where we left off yesterday, let’s discuss some more prospects in both the 2018 and 2019 class, as well as some unique perspectives on Tom Herman’s program.
Our latest edition of the Inside Texas Magazine goes all through Spring ball with practice summaries, Orange-White notes, and Eric’s Then and Now series.
Tremendous work by Will Gallagher and the IT staff.
Tons of insight and quotes from Saturday’s FAST 7v7 tournament in Houston, a future Horn goes gold, and the state’s top RB stops by the 40 Acres for another visit. All in the Scoop.

Here’s who they love, like, and will further evaluate. Also, some potentially huge hoops recruiting news. It’s a two-Scoop kind of week.
Our Justin Wells and Ian Boyd break down each commit from UT’s Class of 2018 with backstories on how Texas managed to build a Top 10 class in May.
What makes this position group so interesting is Texas has missed on a number of top-end talents the last few cycles, yet wide receiver is still probably the deepest position, if not the most talented — that would be the secondary.
