2019 recruiting has seemingly hit a wall at 22 signees. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though the lone hole in the class is the one position you don’t want one: offensive line. However, given the hyper-active transfer climate the staff currently finds itself in, addressing emergency needs is the easiest it’s ever been. Taking a small o-line class is a risk but with the way the 2020 and 2021 offensive line classes are looking, it might be one worth taking.
Latest team info following the Sugar Bowl, updates on remaining 2019 targets, 2020 and 2021 prospects to keep an eye on, and more in an early edition of the Humidor.
It’s been three days since the Sugar Bowl and still the wildest thing isn’t the win, but the sight of Bevo charging towards UGA. That not only put a charge in the fan base, but also the team. When the clip ran before the game the locker room “absolutely exploded.” I won’t say it made a difference but others who were in that room would disagree. They sure came out hot.
We owe you a team info packed Humidor which you’ll get. I’ll do the defensive version of the offensive one we wrote a couple of weeks. Last night had me missing my normal Thursday calls. Sorry, but when I get a chance to catch up with the immaculately dressed @DrewKelson I’m going to take advantage.
We can start this Q&A up with a couple of notes:
After yesterday’s fun-filled Humidor stacked with official visitor weekend and some surprises for this Texas recruiting Class of 2019, we bring the latest from the team, injury report, and more recruiting as we inch closer to National Signing Day next Wednesday. It’s the Humidor – Saturday Edition.
The last weekend before NSD and Texas is hosting a handful, with a potential surprise or two. A few attrition nuggets to go with recruiting – RB, WR, OL – and more in Friday’s Humidor.
Happy Friday, all.
T-minus 24 hours and counting until the Death Star launches. It isn’t a week the team needed outside motivation, but it has been presented in the form of all Big 12 Conference snubs and a consensus feeling outside the program that OU is going to win. In the day and age of social media, of course outside noise filters in.
Merging thankfulness on this day and football is pretty easy given just two Thanksgivings ago the internet went haywire with news of Tom Herman and LSU nearing a deal. It crawled on ESPN and essentially ruined any chance of a nice peaceful evening for thousands of UT fans. Because of that night I’ll forever point to it when I tell my wife, “hey, at least it’s not the Tom Herman/Texas Thanksgiving.”
It seems only yesterday we were going through the wide range of emotions over a wild class of 2015 recruiting cycle, but today we’re sending them off and thanking them for their blood, sweat, tears, and patience.
