As Eric and myself putting the finishing touches on a loaded Humidor, here's some recruiting notes to tide you over. We've got the Texas-Baylor visitor list, and three prospects to watch, including two UT commits and one on the Horns radar.
The sequel to the smash hit, Scoop - Part I, go in-depth with Baron Browning, we look closer at visitors from the Texas-Notre Dame classic, update you on 4-star Lagaryonn Carson's status for Friday, and take a look at new targets making a UT push. All this and more in The Scoop - Part II.
In this edition of Fridays in the Humidor, we give insight as to who is having a solid camp in each position group, the overall mentality of the team heading into the marquee match-up against the Fighting Irish and how Charlie Strong's August has been filled with good news on the recruiting trail.
Unless Charlie Strong and the coaching staff host a star-studded official visit weekend in December, Saturday's Under the Lights camp will be the biggest recruiting event of the year. The third installment may not be as deep in elite talent as the previous two versions, but there's still plenty to get excited about. Here's our preview.
A lot of people, especially my family in California, can't fathom there are people who make a living writing about a single college football team year-round. It's not a real job, they'll say, and I'll nod in agreement. The job is sort of real, however, because recruiting never sleeps. Hell, it doesn't even rest its eyes.
We go in-depth about the state's best prospects in 2017 and 2018 - Baron Browning and BJ Foster -, discover how many hands Jerrod Heard has, talk to a former Longhorn and future mayor, get quotes from the latest commitments, and cover Texas hoops recruiting thoroughly. It's a must-read Scoop, like most.
Junior Day came and went. It's custom to deem these things a success no matter happens on them, but really it's hard for one to go bad. This was easily the most well run Junior Day Texas has had since Charlie Strong's arrival. Taking recruits to the basketball game was a very nice touch, the team pulling off the upset win over hated Oklahoma was even nicer.
