More recruiting, more offers, more Texas love, more everything. More Scoop.
Eric Nahlin and Joe Cook deliver a few notes on top Texas targets who made their way to Austin this weekend, and who Inside Texas saw at the Under Armour camp in Houston. Plus, newest commit Mookie Cooper explains his decision.
Catching up with 2020 class leader Hudson Card, rising defensive back Xavion Alford, newest Longhorn and legacy Parker Alford, and the early visitor list for the month of February and early March in the Scoop: PART II, by Justin Wells.
We’ve got so much Scoop, we’re breaking it into two segments. First up, breaking down the team by positions, and some out-of-state targets talking Texas in the Scoop, Part I.
So far we’ve seen an Elite Day that created buzz, there will also be a Junior Day in February, and we’re also hearing one in March. Weekends in between, like this past one, will feature a sprinkling of talent. The recruiting gas pedal is officially floored.
Wrapping up the roller coaster recruiting ride of last week, and like UT’s 1-0 mantra, we’re diving straight into finishing up 2019 and the beginning of 2020. Let’s Scoop, y’all.
There obviously isn’t too much going on with the team just getting back to campus this weekend. There will be a team meeting tomorrow to welcome everybody to the start of the 2019 school year. I imagine workouts will begin this week as well and I should have some details on that on Friday.
Notes and quotes from top targets at the Next Level Athlete camp, info on several Austin-area prospects, coaches searching for possible additions to next season’s team, and an update on a remaining 2019 target.
When Texas is looking to fill a position of need, the staff won’t confine its options to one of high school, JUCO, or grad transfer, rather it will typically weigh all available options and go from there. In some instances they may like their young options and want someone who can fill an immediate gap (or vice versa), but for the most part they’ll always go best player available from the three main tributaries to the program. Talent is talent and they don’t care if you’re a high school player, at Last Chance U, or are ready to move on from your current four-year school as long as you fit the culture and can improve the program.
On the eve of Christmas, we begin to settle in with family and friends on this wonderful holiday. Let’s wrap up the Texas HS State Championships – one for the ages – with notes and quotes from players headed to Austin or on the Texas Big Board for 2020 and 2021. Get some Scoop in your stocking.
