The 2020 recruiting class has better elite talent at the top and is much deeper across the lines. If Texas can take care of business on the field over the next two months and also close out the 2019 class strong, the staff will have momentum on its side to make significant strides towards a top-five class that’s more centered on in-state prospects.
If you’re interesting in assessing primary blame as to why Texas lost in Stillwater, look to the defense and some key mistakes on special teams. Refer to that sentence if you mistake any criticisms here for a defense of the Texas defense. Or look at the title of the post.
It’s the 24-hour rule after wins and losses here at Inside Texas as well as the Longhorns football team. No need to lament about Oklahoma State with Co-Big 12 leader West Virginia coming to Austin. Let’s catch up on the team news, and dive deep into recruiting from 2019’s class to 2020-2021. Some Monday Scoop.
HELOTES, Tx — It’s no secret the State of Texas is loaded with offensive line prospects in 2020. Logan Parr is one reason.
The 6-foot-3.5, 278-pound OL from San Antonio O’Connor committed to Texas tonight. He chose the Longhorns…
We played well enough to win despite some minor miscues along the way. Sam bounced back with a solid performance and even better leadership. The Oline broke down in a few situations but overall played winning football. The receiving group wasn’t their usual dependable playmakers but managed to support the offense with a few key catches. The RB’s made the most out of their opportunities plus they blocked extremely well.
STILLWATER, Ok — Texas entered tonight’s nationally televised contest with OSU on a six-game winning streak and a No. 6 ranking in the country.
They left with a one-game losing streak and a lot of heartache.
Here are my Five Quick Thoughts following Oklahoma State’s 38-35 win over No. 6 Texas tonight.
That game had the makings of another classic in which Texas gave up a big lead to OSU early only to rip their hearts out late. Of course at other points in the game it had the makings of a Cowboy blowout victory. Ultimately OSU had just enough juice in the tank, and an absurdly effective trump card, to hold on for dear life when the Texas offense finally showed up.
Texas heads north of the Red River to take on Mike Gundy, his mullet, and the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The IT staff looks at how Texas can continue its winning streak and march toward the Big 12 Championship game.
No. 6 Texas will be looking for its seventh consecutive win this season with a winning performance in Stillwater on Saturday night. The Inside Texas staff delivers the Texas-Oklahoma State previews, the inside team info/injury reports, and the latest movement in the #fUTure19 class. It’s at T. Boone Pickens at 7pm (CT) on ABC and the Primer gets you ready.
AUSTIN — After grabbing talent from St. Louis, MO in the 2018 cycle, Tom Herman decided he needed to continue that connection in 2019.
Trinity Catholic four-star WR Marcus Washington committed to Texas today. With Texas on other targets from TCHS, there’s a possibility Washington won’t be the only prospect from the school to become a Longhorn down the road.
