This month’s IT Magazine wraps up the highs and lows of 2016. More importantly, we meet new coach Tom Herman, go in-depth on the 10 most important players in the Texas program, and game-by-game thoughts on UT Basketball in 2016-17. Another superb job and special work by our Will Gallagher. Read it.

If you didn’t already know, Beck got the call to replace Herman as QB coach when he left Ohio State after the 2014 playoffs for the Houston job. Urban made Beck Co-OC with OL coach Ed Warriner and they proceeded to have difficulty over the next two years matching the output of the 2014 offense, navigating the Cardale Jones vs J.T. Barrett QB battle, or rebuilding the passing game.

The last Humidor for 2016 has kind of a Scoop feel to it. Recruiting and UT’s staff completion continues to dominate what’s important news out of Austin. Here’s the latest on both, with key notes/quotes from some of the big dogs of 2017 and one in 2018.

Texas adds another in 2017

For UT’s Class of 2017, tight end No. 2 is in the bag.

Tom Herman and the Longhorns add Jenks (Oklahoma) 3-star and former Nebraska commit Reese Leitao tonight. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound TE/DE visited UT weeks ago and left impressed by the staff and Austin.
