As the Texas coaches continue trekking across the wide expanse for valuable face time at satellite camps, there’s still some business in the immediate region.
Notes on athletic department structure, freshmen arriving and working on the 40 Acres, injury notes, and a look at linebacker recruiting in the first Humidor of June.
Remember that dreary April that brought some much-needed early May momentum? While June’s outlook is nice, we still have a week before the summer starts. The next seven days could make this May a month to remember.
Not much going on with the team right now as most of the players finish out the semester. For the next couple of weeks Humidors will likely be more recruiting-centric.
Details into the inner-workings of Chris Del Conte, and a big official visit weekend is planned on the 40 Acres. Plus, hoops coaching news, and an injury to watch in the Humidor.
A packed spring game visitor list and Hoops notes on an 2019 Austin-area big man and visiting grad-transfer combo guard in Part II of the Humidor.
A big weekend lies ahead for the staff. First and foremost is the exhibition scrimmage on Saturday night. It’s not even a real scrimmage as the team is broken up differently than it normally is. Along with the scrimmage, Texas will host a very strong list of visitors. We’ll tackle that aspect of the weekend in Part II.
Chris Del Conte making moves. Practice notes that you need. Weekend recruiting visitors. And another grad transfer looking at Austin. Enjoy the holiday weekend. Enjoy the weather. Enjoy family. Enjoy the Humidor.
Spring practice has begun, technically.
The first day in pads will be tomorrow. The NCAA mandates it be ‘thud tempo’ but that often turns into thug (in an endearing way) tempo with the real hitters.
The team is on spring break before beginning practice on Tuesday so we’ll focus on recruiting.
We’ve been asked about the UT Big Board. This obviously isn’t official but it very closely aligns with where the staff’s collective head is at. If a player isn’t mentioned it doesn’t mean the staff doesn’t want him and we very well could be missing on a priority player or two, but this is very a close depiction under ideal circumstances.
