One of the most difficult things to do in the off-season of the dry summer is finding appropriate material to talk about on a football sounding board. Throw in a brand new staff that exactly nobody has totally figured jack about and you have a crapshoot that very easily could be as wrong as the four inch middle of June rain we had in the metroplex last night. Let’s make something up and see if we can find an opinion that’s worth taking sides on.
Birthday week on Inside Texas is coming to a merciful end with the Humidor. We’ll talk a little bit of team then finish up with some mild recruiting notes. Not a whole lot going on this week, but next week we’ll have updates galore from The Opening.
This week’s Notebook starts in St. Louis at a premium spot, heads over to Kentucky for the nation’s fastest recruit, still heading east to see a versatile DB from the Peach State, then round-trips to Arizona for the country’s top JUCO TE. The Notebook finishes with notes/quotes from UT’s latest 2019 offer with a nasty disposition.
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.
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.
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.
Happy Friday, cohorts.
The team is going about its business, Tom Herman is going about his business and it’s awesome, and recruiting is damn near on autopilot thanks to very little turbulence.
