Junior Days usually yield positive quotes and enthusiasm afterwards from prospects partaking in the event. Today was slightly different.
The most anticipated recruiting event in Austin in years is finally here and the list of invitees certainly lives up to the hype. Not only is Saturday loaded, but Jaylen Waddle is headed to Austin as we speak, Casey Thompson will be in later today/tonight, and Sunday is a good day of visits in its own right. We’ll take a look at each confirmed name and offer our thoughts. These thoughts are equal parts inside info and intuitiveness.
Between now and September 2nd, Texas fans are going to devote a lot of time, energy and ink to discussing the QB position and to hand-wringing over which RB will assert themselves in the Spring and Fall.

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.

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.
