Two of UT’s top targets talk Texas – Bru McCoy and Javonne Shepherd – and standouts after another day in Frisco. More notes from the Opening.
Attending the Opening. Seeing a ton of talent. Let’s discuss the ones that relate Texas and the Class of 2019. The Inside Scoop from the Star in Frisco.
AUSTIN — Texas’ out of state recruiting campaign in the 2019 class continues, once again in California.
2019 Lakewood (CA) Mayfair 4-star safety Chris Adimora committed to Texas today. Adimora had competing offers from UCLA, Nebraska, Oregon, USC, and Michigan, among others.
As usual, it was way too hot in College Station for State 7-on-7. Inside Texas caught up with Dwight McGlothern and Darius Snow, two top DB targets in the 2020 class, regarding recruiting and Texas.
When the Scoop and Humidor come together, magic happens. We’ll preview The Opening and more in this week’s edition.
Texas’ 2018 schedule is generally considered the toughest in the Big 12 and one of the harder slates nationally. This is mostly because the rest of the Big 12 isn’t opting for taking on a blueblood like USC in their non-conference slate this year (except TCU, taking on Ohio State) but it’s still fairly remarkable given that, unlike the rest of the Big 12, Texas never has to play Texas. Not literally, at least.
A pretty quiet week on the 40 Acres this week as the dead period has arrived. We caught up with a few Texas targets from 2019-2020 for the latest on the recruiting front. Hump Day news.
Three different topics this week. One that has helped and hurt Texas, one that Texas wishes had another attendee, and one that looks set up well for the future.
The story of former Texas football player Greg Ploetz is an inspiring one, a portrait of great accomplishments brushed alongside aching sadness. In a world that insists upon black-and-white absolutes – right and wrong, good and bad, love and hate – Ploetz’s tale will always be painted in gray strokes.
As we enter the dead period (June 25th-July 24th), things are relatively quiet on the 40 Acres. In the land of Inside Texas, we’re embarking on a full week. My main man Eazy is about to enter fatherhood, Ian’s cooking up the goods in his Gameplan, and Joe and I will be in Frisco on Friday for the Opening.
We decided to drop a few recruiting nuggets and hold a Monday Q&A. Get a dose.
