Catalon is just a natural. At everything. His vision and instincts are off the charts. He reacts without hesitation. He's incredibly competitive, who plays three sports - football, basketball, and baseball. He won the AP Texas 5A Defensive Player of the Year...as a sophomore.
With a full year done and over, we can now evaluate Tom Herman’s strategy for getting Texas back to where they need to be. Let’s set aside the non-conference slate for a moment. Herman drew the ideal slate in his first pre-conference schedule with a “firm enough” challenge from Maryland that of course went disastrously wrong, a tune-up against San Jose State, and then a true test of mettle against a fellow blueblood power in USC. That kind of schedule will be beneficial to Texas if/when they’re “back” to being a national contender.
