The Big 12 Conference hasn't released their plans for the 2020 college football season amid the coronavirus pandemic, but other conferences have. The Southeastern Conference announced Thursday its teams would play a conference-only schedule, meaning Tom Herman's Longhorns won't travel to Baton Rouge to face the defending national champion LSU Tigers.
One of the fascinating tidbits from the last Scoop team update was the fact that Texas is working in 10 personnel (one running back, zero tight ends, four receivers) pretty heavily during their 7-on-7 sessions.

Jay Boulware had Everman's Juan Davis committed but was searching for another tight end to add to the 2021 class. His search ended in Colorado. Gunnar Helm from Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, CO committed to the Longhorns, choosing Texas over 27 other offers including Alabama, Colorado, Iowa State, LSU, Georgia, Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Washington.
