Between National Signing Day and the Spring Game, Junior Day is all we have.
It not only gives us a chance to meet players and parents, but we also get an idea of who UT’s truly covets and who they have marginal interest in. It also allows us to talk to high school coaches, and even a few Texas ones, like new RB coach Anthony Johnson.
The prevailing theme from this JD wasn’t the star power (Browning, Okudah, Hines, Miller, Ehlinger, and Tennsion) or potential offers (Benjamin, Reed, Estell), but introducing the new coaches to current Texas commits.
Tennison wanted to know he’ll be used in Austin. Miller wanted to know how Gilbert will get him the ball. And Browning just wanted to keep learning about the history of the Longhorns. Add a thrilling hoops victory over rival OU, and it was a good day.
