Texas will look to continue their recent strong play at home when the Iowa State Cyclones come to Austin just three days after knocking off the Jayhawks in Lawrence, KS. The Texas-ISU game preview.
The value of early commitments stretches far beyond the individual talent of the player. They become the most vocal and enthusiastic recruiters, with unlimited contact. I recall an OU insider telling me the Sooner coaches had never seen anything like it. The commits were making their job easier.
Texas WR Jake Oliver is skipping his senior season to focus on his non-football future, per ESPN. Oliver was second on the team in catches in 2016 with 33. According to the report, Oliver will graduate in May.
Keys to the 2018 class, breaking down the Texas priority targets from the Opening regional, and the Junior Day roster is turning into a monster. It’s the Scoop for your Super Bowl Sunday hangover.

Like all new coaches, Herman wanted to come in and let everyone know who was in charge. If you think he cares that he seemed abrasive he doesn’t. It’s all part of the process, and it’s no different than any other coach. Recall Strong telling the team, “you just got a good staff fired.”
