It’s difficult to imagine the first three months on the job going any better for Chris Beard and staff. Not only are the Longhorns now being mentioned among the top 10 ranked teams heading into the 2021-22 season, but recruiting in the 2022 class is trending positively with some very good returns from official visits in June.
The Humidor dives into current players leading the way in summer workouts, new additions from the portal and how they're acclimating to Texas, recruits scheduled to be on campus this weekend for official and unofficial visits, the state of OL recruiting, and notes on Chris Beard's top targets.
First, a little house cleaning. We’re coming across nuggets that might typically make their way into Scoops and Humidors but electing not to sit on information because we’re essentially in-season when it comes to recruiting. So, if a Scoop or a Humidor is a little thin, which we hope isn’t the case, that’s the reason why.
The football team, including the incoming freshmen and transfers, will report by Tuesday June 1st. As far as we know, everybody is expected to return. There’s always the chance of a surprise, but we’re not expecting any.
The Texas staff is prepared to work every day in June. With the current nine man squad reporting this weekend, Chris Beard and company then go straight into a loaded official visit schedule through June and a live period for evaluation later in the month. Texas' staff is prepared for what is a huge month for the program.
