Rather than fresh powder, Tom Herman’s initial recruiting sledding is going a little icier than I initially anticipated. The moment that really caught my attention was when I was told Herman didn’t have any sort of relationship built with Marvin Wilson or Walker Little, or anyone close to them.
That’s mostly understandable because neither were going to attend the University of Houston. But Tom Herman was just as likely to be at U of H in 2017 as the Episcopal giants. I’m not saying he should have hard-sold them and misallocated valuable time, but he could have been in contact and given them the ‘*wink* you’ll be hearing from me at some point *wink*’ sell. He also could have deployed his position coaches to see the duo, especially given the proximity of the Houston campus to that of Episcopal. It’s really just a Frenchy’s to Red Lion double-lunch away.
