    Top Texas tight ends in the 2019 class

    I'm cross-posting this from the members board, since this particular forum apparently hasn't had a non-spam post since early December, which was so long ago Rondale Moore was still a Texas commit. As I'm known to do every year at around this time, I wrote up a long post profiling the top tight...

    Five under-the-radar OL recruits for 2018

    This forum has been pretty much dead aside from the threads that have popped up recently with foreign lettering and no content having anything to do with prospects. Let's make this forum great again! Here - for the perusal of resident recruitniks and the five other posters who still check on...

    Overlooked and/or underrated 2017 athletes

    This whole forum has been pretty neglected over the past couple of months. I think @Eric Nahlin envisioned it being a go-to place to discuss our favorite non-Longhorn recruits and various and sundry unheralded kids, with its "free" status allowing fans of other schools or just random high school...

    2017 DE/TE Xavier Waggoner

    I wrote a bit about Electra senior Xavier Waggoner today. He was an all-state DE as a junior and is a talented athlete, but what level of college he plays for will be all about projection, because he goes to a 2A Division II school and at this time he's between 6'3" and 6'4" and about 215...

    2017 WR Caleb Twyford (Farmersville)

    I wrote a bit about this kid in my post at BON this morning. He attends Farmersville, a 3A Division I school. He was described to me as between 6' and 6'1" and about 175 pounds. He was primarily a wide receiver and DB as a freshman and sophomore, then moved to running back as a junior and rushed...

    2017 RB Ted Fuller

    Back during the 2012 football season I did a weekly series of posts at BON highlighting unheralded seniors. I'm planning to do a similar series during the current season as part of a larger post I do recapping the previous week's games involving UT commits and previewing those of the coming...
