Buechele makes it to ATX

If some were worried about the strength of Shane Buechele's commitment, let his appearance at Saturday's Junior Day be a leading indicator that he's solid. Driving conditions were treacherous from Buechele's native Arlington to his future home in Austin, but despite hours of traffic delaying his arrival he still made the trip. The Lamar quarterback didn't make the trip to see Texas; he's been there and done that. He wouldn't have committed to Texas if he still had questions about the school or program. He made the trip to lay the foundation for relationships that could end in new Longhorn commitments; future teammates.

2016 Position Rankings: OL

Big boys are often the latest to emerge because of the lengthy maturation process, but that's not the case at the very top of the list. Greg Little and Patrick Hudson are just that special and have been known commodities for well over a year. Some new names have been emerging of late, including a teammate of one of UT's top targets. One thing is clear to me, this group is much better than I initially thought. Joe Wickline has a lot of decisions to make on this class.

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.
