Inspired by the works of Inside Texas Recruiting Editor Eric Nahlin, I decided to search through the East Texas region and build the HS all-star football team that would compete with Houston and Dallas. A tall task indeed. Since I'm dealing with a smaller pot of people, I will combine the classes from 2016 and 2017.
Tons in this week's Inside Texas Inside Scoop. Team notes, recruiting updates, weekend visitors, out-of-state offers, and MORE SHAKA. Recruits talk Smart along with a behind-the-scenes look at how UT nabbed the 37-year old hoops coach. All of this and more in the Scoop, including a new visitor and offer.
This week's Notebook starts in Houston with the state's top LB and finishes in Central Texas with a trio of up-and-comers. We finish with practice perspective from a few of the state's best prospects who attended Texas Relays and watched some of Longhorns' Spring practices. All in the Recruiting Notebook.
Yes, we are talking about practice. Latest from the Frank Denius Fields as UT gets into full spring swing, plus the Texas Relays are in town along with some of the nation's best athletes. Great chance for Strong to say hello to a handful of prospects and targets. We also talk to a new offer, a new QB target, and the very latest on Rick Barnes. We are sitting on the front row in this week's Inside Scoop.
In this week's Inside Scoop, we look closer at a few elite offensive lineman in-state and see where Texas stands with each. The Horns look to be making a move on a sophomore DL and more. Not too much, football wise going on with it being Spring Break. That will change this week. We'll be picking up our team coverage since there will be more news and recruiting since many visitors are expected.
We'll be in Dallas this weekend for The Opening Regionals. This is where we'll build on evaluations, and get players thoughts on UT and recruiting with tons of Texas targets on hand. We'll break down The Opening roster, plus we've got updates on a few upcoming visitors to the 40 Acres. It's all in the Scoop.
In this week's Notebook we breakdown five of UT's top targets, including an exciting WR from Cali already committed to the good guys. We evaluate a massive DL in Central Texas, a move-in from Georgia, an OL with Texas ties, and a run-stopping lineman from Houston. All inside the Notebook.
