Texas head coach Tom Herman constantly asks those in his program to go 1-0 in everything they do. Whether it’s an offseason workout, an in-season practice, a test, or a game, 1-0 is a non-negotiable program principle for members of his team. Senior WR Collin Johnson is a believer in 1-0. He’s a Longhorn though and through, just like the rest of the Johnson family. But Collin has his own small spin on 1-0 that he applies to his on field exploits and his off-field ventures.
The most important position to the long-term health of your program is the offensive line, so when your primary recruiting grounds are loaded at the position it's time to feast. The state of Texas has had its ebbs and flows along the o-line with a mix of below average, average, and above average classes in the recent half-dozen years.
As we approach Spring, Texas is hosting a number of targets each weekend, including some of the state's best on Saturday and Sunday. We talk to them, add notes on other primary prospects, and where the Horns stand with the state and nation's elite. It’s March. Let’s Scoop.
Everything is bigger in Texas. Including the Junior Days. Instead of trying to cram a ton of prospects into one day, the UT staff breaks these events in half. More 1-on-1 with parents and players. Less chance of a kid not getting his attention. More opportunities for parents to ask questions to parents of guys currently on the Texas roster. It's a strategy that helped Herman corral the Class of 2018. It'll serve him even better with the 2019 class. 2020 too.
