Mother’s Day recruiting notes

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.

It’s a normal thing that, after the two April Evaluation Periods, Texas will have identified some players who they think can help them and a bevy of sophomore/junior offers will get handed out.

This year, obviously, has been no different.

The Junior Day was to create momentum and it did. The spring game should compound that momentum, and as you’ve seen in the other thread, Texas has a very nice list of RSVP’s for Saturday’s event. We could see a commit or two go down this weekend, but that’s not for certain.

Pretty much every single important internal and external aspect of recruiting is going UT’s way currently, save overall in-state talent level, which is beyond the staff’s control. While these aspects haven’t led to any in-state commitments (that’s not a bad thing, they simply aren’t reaching) thus far, it’s led to quite a buzz with the in-state elites.
