This week’s Humidor dives into team info as the players are working out with new S&C coach Yancy McKnight and staffers. We talk a little defensive personnel, and drop the latest on recruiting visits and visitors. We’re hitting the final stretch of the Class of 2017 and we’ll talk about UT’s finish. Plus, a nugget on IMG inside the Humidor.
A bit of an exciting weekend looms with numerous visitors making their way to Austin as the cycle mercifully winds down. We don’t like to bother recruits while on their visit for obvious reasons but we’ll pass along anything of note we hear. Of course we’ll have a big recap when it’s all said and done.
But first, we’ll start with some light team notes and UT’s RB big board for 2018.
There might not be much popping for UT in San Antonio this week, but there’s excitement on the 40 Acres and more on the way. We talk to recruits about recent hires, Tim Beck and Stan Drayton, and break down possibly the most important recruit for Texas in the Class of 2017. It’s Hermandor time on this Friday.
Last week we took a look at some of the lesser known players in the program. This week we mined our sources, old and new, for information on some of the more well known players in the program heading into the Spring. You’ll see some overlap in this and last week’s Humidor. If we’re reiterating it’s because it comes from differing sources. So you know it’s good.
Let’s take a look.
Rather than fresh powder, Tom Herman’s initial recruiting sledding is going a little icier than I initially anticipated. The moment that really caught my attention was when I was told Herman didn’t have any sort of relationship built with Marvin Wilson or Walker Little, or anyone close to them.
Also details on specific Longhorns heading into the Spring inside the Humidor.
Herman’s offense, the Applewhite impact, starting from behind on 2017 recruits, and a huge recruiting weekend coming to Austin this Saturday and Sunday makes for exciting times right before the NCAA Dead Period. We give you names, odds, and how Herman has no fear going after in-state committed prospects. This staff is working overtime, just like the squad at Inside Texas in the Humidor.
With so much movement on the Texas Football recruiting horizon, we decided to drop a special Thursday in the Humidor. Texas commit status, targets getting visits, and more. Plus coaching news and a big playoff game on Friday.
Thursday evening, after weeks of keeping our cool while others repeatedly broke their hollowed-out tooth cyanide capsule, we finally felt the coaching search pressure a bit based on some very reliable information. And damn am I pissed about that because thanks to some quick action I once again think UT is back to neutral with Herman’s car headed downhill to Austin, provided the UT admin doesn’t set up any spike-strips.
Interesting week for the dis- and misinformation news market that is Texas Football.
We touch on these items, team/injury news, and state of recruiting in this week’s Humidor.
We dive into team reports, injury news, and new starters heading into UT’s battle with the No. 10 West Virginia Mountaineers. We also add a tidbit on potential staff changes this offseason, and go in-depth on the chances of a coaching carousel happening in college football starting next month. We finish with a portion of the Texas-WVU recruiting visitor list and notes on the early attendees. It’s Friday, Humidor day.
