Justin joins to discuss all things 2019 recruiting as well as a little on the 2020 class.
It’s been a fun week of recruiting. Here’s something to read while we get back to work on the Humidor.
The 2018 postseason is going to prove very instructive to Tom Herman and his staff about where exactly this Texas program is and how close they are to realizing their goals of winning championships. First they drew the full force and focus of the Oklahoma Sooners, who have now won four-straight Big 12 titles and taught Texas something about the difference between the regular season and the postseason. Next they’ll draw Georgia, who is either the best and most physical team in the country or a very close facsimile depending on who you ask.
As Matt Coleman’s potential game-winning three-point shot bounced off the iron, it was the culmination of a stretch where the Longhorns turned the ball over eight times over the last eight minutes, including four times in the final four.
Coaches have been putting miles on the rental cars and Horn Force One since late Saturday. Lots of recruits on the schedule, commits to close, and meals from parents who want to make a great impression. UT’s Class of 2019 is coming to a close with only a few more presents to wrap and put under the tree. Here’s what the prospects have to say.
Tuesday notes on the team after the Big 12 Championship and coaches seeing targets on the road.
Very interesting things to be observed here on rewatch:
We’ll post team information tomorrow. I’ll talk to more today, as will Justin. Obviously the most pressing news is regarding Caden Sterns’ MRI. We haven’t heard anything substantial yet, but should today. Notes/quotes from Jackson, Catalon, and Glass + Texas coaches hit the road this week. Find out where in the Scoop.
Before the year, I thought that Texas would finish 9-4 overall, 6-3 in conference, and go 3-1 against our non-conference schedule and bowl game. I believed that there was about a 35% chance we’d be in the Big 12 title game, so I didn’t factor that game in.
The University of Texas Football program has been selected to represent the Big 12 Conference in the 2019 Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Kickoff against Georgia will be at 7:45 p.m. CT on ESPN.
