The system offensive coordinator Tim Beck brought with him from Ohio State will look a lot different than the veer and shoot Texas fans saw last year from Sterlin Gilbert. While spring practices introduced the team to the new system, preseason practice is when Beck expects the team to nail down the offense.
In the 80's with no humidity where we are. Of course, I can't brag too much because rather than staying in Portlandia, Justin has us stashed in Beaverton, or to put it in our terms, the Katy or Leander of Oregon. We talk quarterbacks, wide receivers, and top it off from team news from the Pacific Northwest.
From observing 2018 recruiting, in which Tom Herman has targeted Cameron Rising and Tanner McKee, we can tell Herman likes quarterbacks the Golden State has to offer. A third Southern California quarterback made his way to the radar when 2019's David Baldwin made his way to Austin for camp.
We feature a depth chart comprised of a sophomore and a true freshman. The sophomore isn't cut from the Andrew Luck cloth of QB frames and spent most of 2016 struggling with a shoulder injury that came from a hard hit in the Cal game, which was then re-aggravated on a weekly basis before knocking him out altogether. The true freshman is a true freshman who will do true freshman things in football games who, as a high school senior, tore both meniscus, broke his thumb and broke his wrist, in no small part because he doesn't like shirking hits.
First, Herman went into Oklahoma to secure Sooner legacy Casey Thompson's committment to the burnt orange and white. Then, Herman and offense coordinator Tim Beck tried to go after Oklahoma's other QB prize, 2018 Newbury Park (CA)'s Cameron Rising. They succeeded, as Rising flipped from Oklahoma to Texas this evening.
The second Southmoore, Oklahoma, quarterback Casey Thompson was offered by UT it was easy to feel good about the Longhorns' chances of landing the dual threat, despite his ties to the in-state Sooners. Fortunately for Texas, OU chose a quarterback from across the country, rather than the one who lived in its backyard and spent a lot of time in its film room.
