If you want to understand Big 12 programs, observe how they recruit.
There’s a pretty funny Friends episode where the oafish Ross tries to relive his college musical glory days when he “found his sound.” A bit hesitant at first, he eventually breaks out his keyboard synthesizer to play for the rest of the gang. A cacaphony of animal noises and simple beats befalls them. The piece culminates in the stereotypical movie sound of an explosion.
Quarterback recruiting is fun again, pair of 2020s to watch, top hoops target nearing a decision, and a facilities update, baseball style. Come see us inside the Humidor.
Or, college entrance interview.
With the Houston Under Armour All American combine being held at Westfield this past Sunday I had a feeling I’d see 2018 UA All-American Keondre Coburn. That bore out and offered the perfect time to see how he’s been spending his final weeks as a high school student-athlete before embarking on college.
AUSTIN — Texas is set to host a number of top targets for its annual Orange-White scrimmage. We have the current list and names are being added daily. Here’s the latest.
Despite his impressive offer list, Austin Bowie’s Elijah Higgins still feels like he has a lot to prove. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, he’s heard the talk about being a tight end and he’s not having it. That topic is largely a semantic one to me as his best utility is likely as an inside flexed receiver who moves around some. I doubt Jordan Reed cares about his positional designation, but as of now Higgins does care about that perception. Schools are recruiting him at receiver, but when Stanford and its rich tight end tradition comes calling, that makes one wonder.
We’ve reached the penultimate weekend of spring football and it will be a quiet one on the 40 Acres. Coaches and players alike will be allowed to leave campus. Likewise, recruiting will also be quiet. We don’t expect any visitors, though you can never entirely rule that out.
Just what the title said.
I hate to interrupt The Masters/Spieth coverage, but I’ve got a few recruiting notes to drop on this cold and wet Saturday.
This week’s Notebook starts in the ATX with a big-time pass-catching target, then we head west to see an elite linebacker with Austin ties, back to Florida for a Texas transfer with LB skills, and finish up in the Fort Worth area with a safety with speed for days. The Recruiting Notebook keeps you in the loop.
