One of the interesting early actions of the Tom Herman staff was to pursue new offensive line options rather than to bring along any of the players currently committed to Houston. This gave us keen insight into who they had atop their Houston board, but were unable to land, likely because of the Houston brand rather than through any real fault of their own.
We open the new year with coverage of the Army All-American Bowl from San Antonio. We add quotes from an interesting out-of-state prospect, and finish with the good and bad of Texas Basketball. It’s the first Scoop of 2017.
Texas running back commit Toneil Carter and defensive end target K’Lavon Chaisson join several of the best high school football players in the country in today’s Under Armour All-American game. Come join the discussion with the IT staff.
The last Humidor for 2016 has kind of a Scoop feel to it. Recruiting and UT’s staff completion continues to dominate what’s important news out of Austin. Here’s the latest on both, with key notes/quotes from some of the big dogs of 2017 and one in 2018.
Our Eric Nahlin drops a note on important 2017 Texas target, Blinn College CB Kendall Sheffield.
With the 2015 signees being long in the tooth by the time this class makes it to campus, Texas will need to replenish and hit on some players who can contribute early.
This week’s Scoop plays everyone’s favorite game at IT; Percentages. We also interview recent Texas commits and top targets in this Tuesday edition of the Inside Scoop. Also breaking news on Texas and a 4-star parting ways. Get some.
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.
This is as much me getting caught up as catching you guys up. Let’s get to some quick thoughts and notes.
ARLINGTON — During the pregame of Desoto and Cibolo Steele, one thing stood out for the Eagles; size.
Desoto has a number of college prospects that litter its roster, some underclassmen. Two really stood out; Junior defensive backs to keep on your radar, German and Gemon Green.
