It's important to remember weight comes to us all differently. Just because a guy is 6-foot-5 it doesn't mean he'll weigh 280. If that were the case shooting guards wouldn't exist. It's also important to remember how each position has different size requirements. Shiro Davis was miscast as an SDE out of necessity and therefore had to carry weight that really stretched his frame limitations. Each player is different. Each position is different.
Today we look at Arlington Lamar QB and UT early enrollee Shane Buechele in today's Prospect Flash Card from the Texas Longhorns Class of 2016 series. We also post the latest IT Daily Dose podcast and Boyd's Gameplan. Dive in.
Tons of updates on the recruiting front today around Texas football. We've got Nahlin & Cook in San Antonio with notes from Army All-American Bowl week, including an interview with LB target Mark Jackson. Wells talks about UT's new offer and his link to the Longhorns, and Chris Hall drops his IT Daily Dose on graduate transfer quarterbacks. Always on top of it at Inside Texas.
As the 2015 recruiting cycle begins to crown, I'd love to see Texas make a forceful thrust for Darius Anderson and Quartney Davis. I know it's popular to criticize Strong - remember, if a coach is fairly criticized for one thing he's fairly criticized for all the things - but his strength when it comes to late evaluation is without parallel. So, I'll defer to him, obviously.
