    Big development here: Vernon Broughton heading to Austin today to visit. With a pending OV to A&M this is good timing for Texas.

    Take this FWIW but I saw a rumor the reason Broughton was in Austin yesterday was to meet with academic counselors. He's an EE.

    I’m not saying Wilson ends up at Texas, but from listening to him at The Opening, I wouldn’t be too quick to put in an Oregon CB. Maybe I’m misreading it, but I think this is going to come down to officials and how things play out in the fall.

    Texas looks good for Dorbah who announces in the coming days. They are also in a good position for Chad Lindberg, Chris Thompson, and Jahari Rogers as well.

    Horns Down

    I have always thought Texas could capitalize on horns down and turn it into a positive. Bulls lower their horns when they mean business.

    Texas has gone far and wide for linebackers over the past few recruiting cycles. In 2018, it was Ayodele Adeoye from IMG Academy in Florida. The 2019 class included De’Gabriel Floyd from California and Marcus Tillman from Florida. In 2020, Texas did not have to go far to secure their first linebacker commit. Peter Dorbah was a linebacker identified early as someone who could be a good fit in Todd Orlando’s defense. Ultimately, it was a fit that was too good to pass up, as Dorbah pulled the trigger and became the newest member of the 2020 class. Dorbah ranks as 7th best outside linebacker in the country and the 111th best player overall, according to the 247sports composite rankings. He chose the Longhorns over offers from LSU, Oklahoma State, Baylor and Arkansas. Film Analysis Player Information Name: Prince Dorbah Position: LB High School: Highland Park City & State: Dallas, Texas Measurables Height: 6’2.5 Weight: 208 40-yard time: 4.8 Shuttle: N/A Statistics 2018: 92 Tackles, 36 TFL, 20 Sacks Three Best Traits: Potential Fit – One of the toughest positions to recruit for in the Texas defense is the B-Backer position. It is a position most players don’t start off playing in high school, but instead grow into as they transition into college. Dorbah is someone who could fit very well in the B-Backer spot depending on how he grows into his body. He has experience playing with his hand in the dirt as a defensive end, but also can play off the ball and possesses linebacker traits. Awareness and Physicality- On film, Dorbah is someone who stands out as football savvy. He rarely puts himself in a bad position and shows good awareness to help him make plays. He is not afraid to mix it up between the tackles in run support and can fight through traffic to get to the ball carrier. Motor and Athleticism–Dorbah is someone who always finds himself around the ball. He flies around the field and has a nose for the ball. The athleticism he shows on film proves he could be a successful linebacker if he grows into the position. Three Worst Traits: Developing as a pass rusher– This is will likely be the biggest question mark for Dorbah once he gets to Austin. All of the tools are there, but he will need to put it all together in order to be someone who can be relied upon to rush the passer. Size – Right now, Dorbah does not have the size to endure life as a linebacker in the Big 12. This shouldn’t be too much of a concern, mainly due to the fact that he is likely to spend his freshman year under the watchful eye of Yancy McKnight. If he is able to add 15-20 pounds and grow into his frame like expected, there is little doubt he will be a good college player. Using his leverage- One of the most important aspects of someone who is playing around the line of scrimmage is using leverage to move your opponent where you want them to go. As Dorbah adds weight, Todd Orlando is likely to spend a lot of time with him refining his ability to get lower than his opponent and force his way into the backfield. Summary College coaches often talk about finding players who fit their scheme well, and Dorbah is someone who fits that description almost perfectly. He currently spends a lot of time in the Highland Park defense as a defensive end, but his frame and physical traits could translate very well to linebacker at the next level. He possesses a lot of athleticism while showing the ability and willingness to play around the line of scrimmage. Regardless of what position he ends up at, Todd Orlando is getting another athletic defender who can play in space, which you can never have enough of in the Big 12. Final Verdict Texas has made an effort to re-establish their presence in DFW this recruiting cycle, and it has paid dividends. Dorbah becomes the 4th player from DFW to commit to the Longhorns, a number that is likely to rise in the coming months. Dorbah represents another player who raises the overall talent floor of the Longhorns and gives them another potential All-Big 12 type player to develop.

    Relax, everyone. This is the traditional offseason. Herman is getting in on kids early, letting them look around, and when they are ready, they commit. Our commitments usually stick because the coaches want them to be sure, but getting on them early is key. We will be fine. Has Herman let you down, yet? I love Ellinger’s, “We’re baaack.” I think he will back it up. Think JB and Vince. Love it! Hook ‘em!

    How it all ends up playing out is going to be very interesting. Texas has pretty done all the things that is supposed to put themselves in position to land their share of the top recruits they are after yet it seemingly didn't have the effect it should have. That tells me some things are going on that we are not privy to. One of the things that I think is in play now, for whatever reason, is that other teams/programs have ramped up the negative recruiting against Texas. Bottom line, other teams/programs play the recruiting game differently than we are willing to play it. In several ways.

    After that 2010 championship game Mack pretty much shut it down but he stayed for years after that and we were about a.500 team which should never happen at Texas. Then here comes Patterson and Charlie Strong so another several years of below average football and keep him on and people crying that we didn’t give him a chance. Now Hernan walks into a mess.....not for sure he realized how bad of a mess. Now CDC is hired.......HUGE HIRE. Upgrades the facilities that had fallen behind and many other changes for the better. All that to say I think we’re on the right track. These kids coming out of high were 7 or 8 years old the last time we looked good in football. We have to recruit nationally to stay with the top teams in the country because Texas kids go all over the country nowadays, so no one team is going to pull in enough Texas kids to beat the Alabama and Clemson’s of the world. Just look at the top teams recruiting classes every year and you’ll see. I think we’ll get there Boys and Girls. We’re getting closer. Or if not I’ll damn sure be fooled again. Bring on La Tech

    Not only does Texas need to have a good season, they need for Ingram to be a successful 1000 yard back. That's what will catch the prospects attention.

    Was never an OB member. I left Hornfans after several years and came here. HF had an "elite" group of members who could say anthing that came into their minds. Other members not so much. Ridicule became tiresome and thankfully I found Hornsports.

    Kitan Crawford Is A Longhorn

    Four star John Tyler (TX) cornerback Kitan Crawford kick started Texas' big recruiting weekend by announcing he is committing to the Longhorns. Crawford has favored the Longhorns for sometime now, but recently narrowed his choices down to Oklahoma and Tennessee along with Texas. Crawford is currently ranked 191st nationally according to 247Sports' composite rankings and is the 8th ranked athlete nationally. Quick Takeaway At 5'11, 200 pounds Crawford possesses solid size for the position, but also possesses elite level athletic traits as well. Crawford posted a 10.6 in the 100 meter dash during track season and according to Mike Roach of 247Sports, he posted a 40 yard dash time in the 4.4s recently. His long and recovery speed along with fluid hips are two things that stand out to me most on tape, and when you add that along with his ball production (12 PBUs and 2 Ints in 2018) you got you a rock solid template for a cover corner at the next level. Though he projects on the defensive side of the ball at the next level, I like the way Crawford finishes off runs as a ball carrier and it's that kind of competitive and physical toughness that I think will carry over from a physical standpoint. Given that Crawford has split time on both offense and defense, he still has plenty of room for growth as a defensive back and given his physical traits that makes for a high ceiling as a prospect. Final Thoughts Credit to the Texas staff for hitting on this evaluation and getting in on Crawford early enough to establish their presence at the top of his list and eventually run away with this recruitment. Crawford is the latest addition to a long list of talented defensive back prospects Jason Washington and Craig Naivar have added to the stables in Austin. With Crawford now in the boat, all eyes will now be on Jahari Rogers for the other corner spot in this class and he is currently on campus taking his official with Crawford. Can Texas shut both of their priority corner targets down in the same weekend? We shall see.

    We need to tell Evans that we will send him an LOI on signing day and if he wants to come to Texas then sign it and mail it back. But we are no longer recruiting him. Hopefully we will have two stud running back’s by then and won’t give a shit either way. He told the world he wasn’t including Texas on his list because we didn’t beat Georgia badly enough. Fuc him.

    Whether if he is or isn’t (there’s conflicting reports), I wouldn’t worry about it too much either way at this point. The priorities should remain the same.

    Getting him in now allows the staff to get out in front of whatever A&M will be telling him over the weekend. Either way getting him on campus at this point is a good sign.

    at some point the fact that secsecsec teams continue to get punked in the bowls like they have for the last 3 or 4 years, ESPN may finally have to admit to being myopic about them. For the last 3 years combined I think the secsecsec is LAST among power 5 conferences in bowl record. Frankly, without Alabama they might be batting about 300 or so...

    The players who grew up true die hard Texas fans like him always seem to pan out. They seem to work harder, and put so much pride into being a Longhorn that they refuse to fail. I hope Lake turns into one of those guys! Hook Em!

    Spoke to my buddy just now about this. He says visit was total surprise and they weren't sure what to expect. However, they more or less viewed the whole thing as a good faith gesture by NS coaching staff. I'm still trying to fully understand that statement but it seems as though nobody at NS is heading to an in-state school in this class. So maybe thats what he meant. So no, this wasn't a big deal. Nothing wrong with him paying a visit or his coaches. The visit went as well as you could expect. They are full-in on Bijan Robinson. Evans will likely end up at Bama.

    Interesting update on Bijan today at Brainiacs. OSU mod Super K knows said he has no idea why OSU has had a flood of crystal balls for Bijan. Apparently, a family member of another recruit in California started a rumor that Bijan had chosen OSU a couple weeks back. He said Bijan has not silently committed to OSU. Based on Super K's conversation with Bijan's mother, OSU wasn't the top school or even a second choice for her. He said based on that, Bijan would have to convince mom that OSU is the place for him, and that has not happened.

    I hated TB cause he always seemed to beat my Cowboys. I also respected his toughness and leadership. I actually liked him on Fox sports and in the couple of movies he’s been in. Now this statement is a totally different animal and TB should be put on blast for that crap remark.

    The brother's tweet is enough info for me to understand your prior post. That's embarrassing to be 18 and having to have your parent tell you to apologize. I don't know what's worse either having to give a phony apology or having to accept one. I hate to admit it, but Alabama might be the best place for him to go. He probably needs the structure, so he can mature.

    Hey, it’s a message board. I’m going to re-focus on that 10 pound bass I’m catching tonight. For any of you guys that like to fish for the largemouth, night is the only ticket right now. Use big baits. A 10” worm or longer. Black. Or a jig and dark trailer. Keep your bait in 8 to 12 feet of water and work it very slowly. This is where the bigguns hunt. They are flushers. And 8 to 12 feet is their preferred hunting range.
