This is a Q&A, but first a couple team notes and nice dose of recruiting.
When I write that Texas finally has talented seniors again, I primarily mean that on the defensive side of the ball where 8 are set to start versus Maryland. With those players set to exit after this campaign, on-field development within the season, as well as adding players capable of helping in 2019 is on Todd Orlando’s to-do list in preparation for next year.
With recruiting ready to wake from its August coma, let’s take a look at what traits are missing from the class, and in some cases even the program, as we embark on the season-long push to the first National Signing Day.

The state of Texas has had its ebbs and flows along the o-line with a mix of below average, average, and above average classes in the recent half-dozen years.
