There’s no other way to put it. Jones’ return isn’t a surprise. It’s also the right decision.
Hitting the HS football camp scene (ETSN Combine, Elite 7 V series/Mike Vick Camp) this weekend, Texas looking out-of-state more, latest on Wright, Epps, Lake Travis rebuilding, and Bryon Hobbs. The Scoop tells all.
Scattered thoughts all over the map while we figure out how old four-eyes relates to this particular dilemma created this week.
Just about everybody has a opinion concerning the latest (and hopefully last) Jordan Elliott escapade for UT. Most coaches see upwards of 50 JE types during their 30-year sentence.
In this edition of the Humidor, we go over the two departures from the program that were announced yesterday, as well as what that means for the defensive line going forward. We also catch up with some more quick hitters during the transition from spring practice to summer workouts. Happy Friday, happy reading.
Picking up where we left off yesterday, let’s discuss some more prospects in both the 2018 and 2019 class, as well as some unique perspectives on Tom Herman’s program.
Tons of insight and quotes from Saturday’s FAST 7v7 tournament in Houston, a future Horn goes gold, and the state’s top RB stops by the 40 Acres for another visit. All in the Scoop.
We all have our hobbies. Some of you fish. Some of you cook, or at least over salt and burn. Some watch movies to the point they know what noir and Das Boot means. Impressive.
I always liked recruiting, at least since I started reading Dave Campbell’s upon moving to Texas. A nerdy recruitnik – not unlike W.W. McClyde and his vicissitudes – I was hobbying like an SOB on Saturday.

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.
What makes this position group so interesting is Texas has missed on a number of top-end talents the last few cycles, yet wide receiver is still probably the deepest position, if not the most talented — that would be the secondary.
