After the dust settles from the spring and before the evaluation period where coaches take to the road en masse, I'll more thoroughly reset the landscape. For now I'll offer some quick thoughts. The shorter version is not much has changed since I wrote about the tension between UT-OU-A&M.
I remain fascinated by the in-state recruiting dynamics between football blue bloods Texas and Oklahoma, as well as Texas A&M. Compounding the intrigue of all three finishing with Top 5 classes for the 2019 cycle, each school will host its spring game on the same day: April 13th.
This week's Recruiting Notebook starts in the golden triangle with a highly-sought offensive lineman, then over to South Houston for another o-lineman with lots of attention, then head up I-45 to DFW and one of the best athletes in the nation, then finish back in H-town for the state's premier defensive lineman. Let's Notebook some 2020s.
One day before the All-American Bowl took place in San Antonio, hundreds of high school football prospects from around the country participated in the All-American Bowl combine. Two talented performers had great days, Shadow Creek's Xavion Alford and Cy-Ridge's Vernon Broughton. Both spoke about their performance and about the Longhorns.
It's the 24-hour rule after wins and losses here at Inside Texas as well as the Longhorns football team. No need to lament about Oklahoma State with Co-Big 12 leader West Virginia coming to Austin. Let's catch up on the team news, and dive deep into recruiting from 2019's class to 2020-2021. Some Monday Scoop.
We start this week with an athletic junior o-lineman in San Antonio, then head down to North Houston for the ideal 4i, slide over to central Texas for another defensive end target, and finish in the Show Me State with sparkplug from the offensive side in this week's Recruiting Notebook.
