While the 2018 class is coming together quite nicely, let’s take an early look at the 2019 Texas targets and the relationships being built. While there are roughly 12-14 spots left in 2018, the 2019 class could and should be Herman’s biggest class in Austin to this point.
Here’s who they love, like, and will further evaluate. Also, some potentially huge hoops recruiting news. It’s a two-Scoop kind of week.
