As another Signing Day passes, camp season has arrived. Our guys, Eric and Joe, will be in Houston for The Opening Regional camp. So will around 200 prospects, mostly from Texas, but also Louisiana, California, and Oklahoma. Here’s a quick preview of who to take notice of while IT has you covered tomorrow.
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.
We’re 14 days from NSD. Just a handful of quick tidbits for your reading pleasure.
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.
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.
With the end of the dead period on our doorstep, let’s do a status check on some remaining targets with upcoming visits. Plus, new names headed to Austin this weekend.
Texas running back commit Toneil Carter and defensive end target K’Lavon Chaisson join several of the best high school football players in the country in today’s Under Armour All-American game. Come join the discussion with the IT staff.
Our Eric Nahlin drops a note on important 2017 Texas target, Blinn College CB Kendall Sheffield.
With the 2015 signees being long in the tooth by the time this class makes it to campus, Texas will need to replenish and hit on some players who can contribute early.
This is as much me getting caught up as catching you guys up. Let’s get to some quick thoughts and notes.
