While Eric so eloquently described the new staff kicking up dust on the recruiting trail, I've gathered a few notes and quotes as Herman's Hermits continue to run up the gas card expense account from Bellmont. One thing I've noticed with the new staff that's vastly different than Strong's first go around are the established relationships with the prospects and new UT coaches inside the state. Just talking to kids in the last week, it's very apparent that this staff built bonds with prospects they may never have had a shot with at UH, but now that they're in Austin, are looking a little better.
This week's Notebook starts in the DFW area for a tight end committed to the ACC. We then head down to Houston for a TE with a father known for big shots, back up to the woods of East Texas for a corner on offer watch, then finish with an o-lineman with a nasty streak. The Recruiting Notebook goes state wide.
