UT’s Class of 2018 added a new member yesterday, so let’s look at the remainder of the class with percentages. We also talk to two of the Horns’ top targets as their decision time is getting close, 1-on-1 with newest hooper pledge, Brock Cunningham, and more. It’s a Tuesday Scoop. Dig in.

The prequel to the Inside Scoop Part II (by Cook), this version talks Eagles landing, Tight End Recruiting including the Mustapha, closer look at 2019 QB targets after Roschon dropped, Bobby Brown’s outlook, and more quotes Post-Stars at Night. Nahlin and Wells bring the goods.

We’re pretty loaded with Scoopage on this fine Monday. Hopefully palindrome week is off to a nice start for you. If it isn’t, this Scoop should help.

The staff is not only pressing for 2018 commitments, it’s also extending an introductory handshake to many of the state’s best 2019 prospects. As these relationships strengthen, those handshakes turn into hugs and before you know it, a large portion of the 2019 class will be wrapped up by this time next year.

There isn’t one month on the CFB calendar more dull than July. Coaches are taking vacations, players are going home to rest up before the dreaded August heat and grind of 2-a-days. This is the month that can separate the good from the great. Some guys get content while others use it as an opportunity to get better. Here’s the schedule for Texas Football in the middle of the year.

This week’s Scoop dives deep into last weekend’s HS recruiting scene. From The Opening in Oregon, to the State 7v7 in College Station, IT has all your bases covered. News, notes, and quotes from Texas commits, targets, and more. Before you start celebrating our country’s birthday, get some Scoop.

In the 80’s with no humidity where we are. Of course, I can’t brag too much because rather than staying in Portlandia, Justin has us stashed in Beaverton, or to put it in our terms, the Katy or Leander of Oregon. We talk quarterbacks, wide receivers, and top it off from team news from the Pacific Northwest.

The dog days of summer means it’s hot, humid, and camp season. Today, the dead period begins which means no unofficial visits, face-to-face contact, and only the player can text/call the coach. We wrap up an eventful weekend with Moore pledging his undying love for all things Texas, Watkins and UT mutually parting ways, and the Pylon 7-on-7 Championships in D/FW. We also talk to one of the top HS basketball players in the nation after his visit to Austin. It’s Scoop day.

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.

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.
