In the football-only facility at Denton Ryan there’s a wall of pictures of players who have gone on to the next level from the Raider football program. 2021 ATH Ja’Tavion Sanders will likely join his cousin, former Florida Gator defensive end Jarvis Moss, on that wall someday.
I was able to catch up with the mother of elite defensive end prospect Vernon Broughton (Cy Ridge) after the family made its official visit to Austin this past weekend. Per the usual Yolanda Wells-Broughton offered some insightful answers, but perhaps her most telling reply is one she mostly declined. Here's how the conversation went.
This week’s Recruiting Notebook focuses on defensive back targets for the Longhorns. Starting in Houston, then north on I-45 to Arlington, a quick stop for an underclassman in Austin, then back to Arizona for an elite safety. The Notebook travels well.
The aftermath from the Made In Texas weekend that included a packed Bevo Blvd., a well-attended spring game, and a Ludacris concert is slowly starting to rise up. Priority guys know they are priorities, and you'll begin to see official visitors head to Austin starting on May 3rd for UT's first OV weekend.
After the dust settles from the spring and before the evaluation period where coaches take to the road en masse, I'll more thoroughly reset the landscape. For now I'll offer some quick thoughts. The shorter version is not much has changed since I wrote about the tension between UT-OU-A&M.
