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.
Texas and Tom Herman completed its football staff for 2017 today with the additions of Tim Beck (OC) and Stan Drayton (RB coach). Details on both and how Beck fits Herman’s offensive system.
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.
With only one commit playing in the Army All-American Bowl, our focus turns to Texas targets playing in this game, including one Tom Herman recently extended an offer to.
After Monday’s first Army All American bowl practice, I was able to catch up with Lancaster WR Omar Manning. He talks TCU, Tom Herman, and the Texas Longhorns.
We open the new year with coverage of the Army All-American Bowl from San Antonio. We add quotes from an interesting out-of-state prospect, and finish with the good and bad of Texas Basketball. It’s the first Scoop of 2017.
Texas running back commit Toneil Carter and defensive end target K’Lavon Chaisson join several of the best high school football players in the country in today’s Under Armour All-American game. Come join the discussion with the IT staff.
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.
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.
