Whatever euphoria you were feeling last year at this stage – or at least nervous excitement (some were still pretty concerned a week out from NSD) – you’re feeling the opposite as this cycle comes to a close.
New offers, new targets, and Texas coaches on the road this week. Here’s the latest from our team at Inside Texas from Eric Nahlin, Joe Cook, and Justin Wells. Check here for the latest on the 40 Acres.
Another weekend, another opportunity for Texas and its coaching staff to solidify the current commits and try to snag a few more. Here’s the notes and quotes from all the attendees, plus news on midweek visitors and latest on Tevin Mack’s status on the 40 Acres. It’s Monday, Scoop Day.
We’re 14 days from NSD. Just a handful of quick tidbits for your reading pleasure.
We’re 15 days until NSD. Which means a little over two more weeks of craziness, surprises, then full focus on the Class of 2018. Here’s a few notes and quotes on this hump day.
In what is turning in to a trend for new Texas coach Tom Herman, the coaches and support staff hosted the players and their parents yesterday for a luncheon and get-together for the moms and dads to get to know Herman and his coaches better. Details on the day’s festivities.
Last week we broke down the two foundational plays of the Tom Herman offense, which are the inside zone and power run schemes. Everything in Herman’s offense flows from first being able to attack the space between the tackles with these two runs and then punishing defensive overplays with spread formations, option concepts, and play-action.
How about a refresher as we head into the second-to-last official visit weekend? Eric Nahlin takes us position-by-position with two visit weekends left and the clock ticking down until National Signing Day.
The latest from a great Official Visit weekend on the 40 Acres. Relationships were built, questions answered, and potentially prospects convinced Austin is the place to take up residence. Also add a couple of minor team notes and the Houston Lamar bunch UT has in its sights. It’s a Sunday night Scoop.
We get asked this question every year at this time, just as we’ll get asked ‘what goes into a junior day’ next month. Official visits are the compilation of fun, business, and atmosphere. It’s the ultimate, and most importantly, the last time a prospect gets to see your school before he decides.
