Thank God the month of March is in the rear-view mirror. Thirty-one days never felt so long.
No spring ball. No recruiting visits. The new normals are virtual dinners and Zoom meetings allowing for relationship building in these social distancing times.
The beauty of technology is how Texas coaches can still recruit through myriad devices across myriad platforms. If there was one thing the newly-shuffled UT staff needed to do for the 2021 class, it was getting to know the priorities much more intimately over the next nine months. Timelines being extended is one possible silver lining for UT football. It allows for more relationship building. We said the new staff would have to hit the trail with enthusiasm to regain momentum lost from the 2020 season. Despite the current circumstances, we feel they’re doing just that.
Texas is ticking up for some high-yield talent that should pay dividends. Some will pay quarterly, some won’t pay until NSD1 in Q4.
The month of April should allow staff members to continue to grow these bonds, one virtual family dinner at a time.
With the VIX reaching all time highs, let’s get you your recruiting fix.
