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.
The Toneil Carter commitment couldn’t have come at better time or faster rate. His recruitment went 0 to 60 in the same time he does, giving Tom Herman’s staff a much needed jolt. This was a just reward for persistent work, and also a bit of good fortune.
Listening to Christmas music this morning in the Wells’ house, I’ve got a couple recruiting notes to drop this morning while sipping on this egg nog waiting for Army-Navy. Just added Sunday updates on new offer and surprise visitors.
Here are some notes for the big official visit weekend.
The Texas staff has been hitting the trail hard recently, and Thursday afternoon was no change. Coaches visited Houston and East Texas, offering several prospects across Houston and Dallas, including some committed to other schools. The IT Staff has more inside.
