AUSTIN -- One-third of the way through his first season at Texas, head coach Tom Herman and his offensive staff are having to answer tough questions prior to their first conference home game against Kansas State.
For years, many of us wondered where the depth of quality offensive line prospects were. Despite Texas consistently landing its first choices at the position, there just weren't a whole lot of options. Sure, A&M went on a great run of offensive line evaluation and development, but they were about the only ones, save some scatter-shots like Spencer Drango at Baylor and Le'Raven Clark at Texas Tech.
In this edition of Mondays in the Humidor we’ve got some good team information all things considered as we head into the dog days of summer. While the offense should be feeling its oats coming off a stellar spring, the unit is not without serious concern. We’ll tell you what is keeping Sterlin Gilbert and company up at night and it’s not the quarterback position.
Kansas State comes to Austin on Saturday. Team notes, position by position to get you prepared. We also talk to a new OOS target, the top LB in Texas for 2017, and one of Texas' top targets along the o-line for 2016. As usual, the Scoop delivers on a Friday.
This week's Scoop goes 1-on-1 with the nation's top junior quarterback, touches base with a committed playmaker who won't stop growing, UT's need for tackles and love for guards, a TE target set to announce soon, to a TE project from East Texas. Plus, a Lagaryonn Minute and a mini-Humidor for your hot, summer night. Or morning, rather.
This week's Recruiting Notebook starts outside the Metroplex and eye-balls an up-and-coming defensive back that impressed at UT camp two weeks ago. We also evaluate a monster Texas legacy from Missouri City, evaluate a mighty mite at running back that would make ZZ Top proud, and meet a burner from #bEASTexas.
