I was able to catch up with the mother of elite defensive end prospect Vernon Broughton (Cy Ridge) after the family made its official visit to Austin this past weekend. Per the usual Yolanda Wells-Broughton offered some insightful answers, but perhaps her most telling reply is one she mostly declined. Here's how the conversation went.
After the dust settles from the spring and before the evaluation period where coaches take to the road en masse, I'll more thoroughly reset the landscape. For now I'll offer some quick thoughts. The shorter version is not much has changed since I wrote about the tension between UT-OU-A&M.
I hesitate to say this, but UT is sitting in a good position for a number of top 2021 prospects. This will just make you wonder why they aren't committing yet, "if these players really do like UT," but it's true. It's a very talented class, though not without its holes -- stares at the linebacker room for the fourth cycle in a row.
I remain fascinated by the in-state recruiting dynamics between football blue bloods Texas and Oklahoma, as well as Texas A&M. Compounding the intrigue of all three finishing with Top 5 classes for the 2019 cycle, each school will host its spring game on the same day: April 13th.
