UT’s Class of 2018 added a new member yesterday, so let’s look at the remainder of the class with percentages. We also talk to two of the Horns’ top targets as their decision time is getting close, 1-on-1 with newest hooper pledge, Brock Cunningham, and more. It’s a Tuesday Scoop. Dig in.
We have a couple of interesting notes to pass along from this weekend’s scrimmage.
I like simple statistics that convey truths. I’m also a general fan of living in reality. So one of my favorite portions of the 2017 Thinking Texas Football is something I’d like to excerpt here.
Herman’s presser today made more concrete a lot of things I’d already surmised with respect to our OL. But it also surprised me. Elijah Rodriguez, starting right tackle.
With players putting on the pads today, football has officially began. We’ve got practice reports, depth chart movement, team info, and loads of hoops recruiting. With 100-degree temperatures, come inside the air-conditioned Humidor on this Friday.
We’ve broken down the initial depth chart and also the freshman class through the view of potential red-shirts. Now it’s time to bring it all together with the roster table.
I do this every year, and if things are trending the right way, at least from the standpoint of talent accruement, the players predicted to play as true freshmen should be fewer and fewer.
Something caught my eye while scanning the post-practice player interviews. It came from our favorite Tongan and it reminded me once again that we’ve entered a new world when it comes to attention to detail in all phases of the program.
The initial depth chart is mostly meaningless, but it does have value for tracking purposes. It will be interesting to watch the evolution of the revolution leading up to Maryland.
The first practice of 2017 was in perfect weather conditions. Nice breeze, a little sunny, and plenty of energy from the staff and players. We only got a small 30-min window to watch but here’s what we gathered early on.
