The biggest remaining recruitment in the 2020 cycle for Texas Longhorn coaches was the one closest to campus. Bastrop Cedar Creek defensive linemen Alfred Collins took his process to the second National Signing Day and announced his decision in front of a packed school gym.
On March 6, 2019, the Texas Longhorns were 11-3 and coming off a midweek win over UT-Rio Grande Valley and a sweep of No. 1 LSU in Austin. That day, Texas announced senior catcher DJ Petrinsky would miss the remainder of the season with a torn labrum. The Longhorns went 16-24 the rest of the way, finished 27-27, and were left out of both the NCAA and Big 12 tournaments.
One of the attractive features of Texas' offensive coordinator opening was the rostered players and committed prospects at the quarterback position. Sam Ehlinger is set to challenge school records during his senior season. Casey Thompson has two years of backup experience and three years left to play. Highly touted prospects Hudson Card and Ja'Quinden Jackson recently ended their accomplished high school careers.
January 2, 2019 was Ryan Day’s first official day as head coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. The first move he made as head coach was to elevate former Buckeye Brian Hartline to permanent wide receivers coach. The second move was to hire Mike Yurcich from Oklahoma State.
