The sequel to the smash hit, Scoop - Part I, go in-depth with Baron Browning, we look closer at visitors from the Texas-Notre Dame classic, update you on 4-star Lagaryonn Carson's status for Friday, and take a look at new targets making a UT push. All this and more in The Scoop - Part II.
In this edition of Fridays in the Humidor, we give insight as to who is having a solid camp in each position group, the overall mentality of the team heading into the marquee match-up against the Fighting Irish and how Charlie Strong's August has been filled with good news on the recruiting trail.
Let's talk roster numbers. Let's talk to new recruiting targets. Let's talk coaches calling kids at midnight. And let's talk hoops and where UT stands with a few of his prime prospects. It's Monday, let's talk about the Inside Scoop.
The Scoop wraps up UT's Under the Lights with news and notes from some of the state's best. We talk new offers, visits, and more as we're closer to 2-a-days and Fall camp, while also adding a few hoops tidbits. Football is around the corner but the Scoop is right now.
Most of you will recall what The Opening is, but if not, it's essentially a combine and 7 on 7 tournament on steroids. Those fortunate enough to be invited after performing at regional combines will be treated to some Nike finery, as well as tutelage from NFL greats, past and present. Basically, you want your roster loaded with players who have been invited to Oregon.
We go in-depth about the state's best prospects in 2017 and 2018 - Baron Browning and BJ Foster -, discover how many hands Jerrod Heard has, talk to a former Longhorn and future mayor, get quotes from the latest commitments, and cover Texas hoops recruiting thoroughly. It's a must-read Scoop, like most.
Though Texas will miss on plenty of those names, even some who may seem farfetched at this point will end up in Austin if the team can simply improve by three games. With the exception of Nick Saban, Charlie Strong does the best job in the country of creating late momentum in recruiting.
