Hitting the HS football camp scene (ETSN Combine, Elite 7 V series/Mike Vick Camp) this weekend, Texas looking out-of-state more, latest on Wright, Epps, Lake Travis rebuilding, and Bryon Hobbs. The Scoop tells all.

While the 2018 class is coming together quite nicely, let’s take an early look at the 2019 Texas targets and the relationships being built. While there are roughly 12-14 spots left in 2018, the 2019 class could and should be Herman’s biggest class in Austin to this point.

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.

Sometime in the early mid-2000’s some friends and I were on one of those river buses in New Braunfels catching a ride back to the parking lot. It being a long day in the sun, we might have had a little buzz working. I look over to the side and I see somebody’s head standing way taller than the rest. It’s THE Chris Mihm. Within 15 seconds we had that whole bus chanting “Let’s go Celtics!” I still laugh about it wondering if most of the people even knew why we were chanting that.

This week’s Scoop looks closer at UT’s recruiting momentum and the State of Recruiting for 2018. And despite Spring ball concluding, that doesn’t mean a certain Texas signal-caller isn’t putting in more work. Plus we catch up with the newest local hoops offer and how he’s gone from average to dominating in little under a year.

With over 50 prospects on hand for Saturday’s Orange-White game, the feedback was good as the attendance was surprising.

And that’s one of the reasons for these scrimmages; to have fun, generate excitement in the program, and wrap up Spring ball in a positive manner. Mission accomplished.

Sights and sounds from this weekend’s scrimmage, depth chart movement as Spring winds down, UT’s Big Board – Offense – for the 2018 Class, and notes from weekend visitors. Plus, some hoops recruiting nuggets from the hardwood. As usual, the Scoop delivers on a Monday.
