Strong’s Foundational Class of ’15

The 2015 cycle was unconventional, not just for Texas fans, but also Charlie Strong. Maybe especially Charlie Strong. Sure, it had some elements of his process at Louisville, but he got a whole lot more than he bargained for and ended up in some all out street fights with regional and national schools. He landed his share of body blows, and put WRTS at a standing eight count. You can actually say the fight with Aggie is now a draw, though I much prefer UT's trend line.

On its face, this cycle won't be as talented as the previous one. That should be of little concern to a Texas staff taking a smaller class, being great at identifying proper fits, and possessing the ability to go out of state and Cherry-pick players. Furthermore, the class of 2015 was so large in scope, it plugged a lot of holes. That said, you always need to re-stock talent because that's how you reload rather than rebuild.
