    Some Personal News...

    At 5:14 PM today, our second daughter made her grand entrance into this world and officially made us parents of two! I’m happy to report that mom and little Mia are both healthy and recovering as I type this note. I’ll be a bit preoccupied in the interim, but I will be in and out periodically as I am able to get the family back home and settled. Until then, still feel free to send questions our way and I will try to get back to y’all as soon as I can!

    So this post has nothing to do with any UT sports, this is just me being proud of my daughter. She just got accepted into UT pharmacy school. Sorry for going off topic, but I had to brag a little. Back to you regular scheduled program.

    5 Thoughts: Sugar Bowl Edition

    Georgia is a playoff team and one of top four teams in the country they said. Georgia is going to run all over Texas and it won’t be close they said. Georgia is too physical and defense is nonexistent in the Big 12 they said. THEY were dead wrong. Texas entered this contest a two touchdown dog to the Bulldogs from Athens, Georgia, and if you listened to the talking heads this game was over before the teams ever took the field. Just about everyone seemingly had written off the Longhorns having a chance in this matchup. That is just about everyone except the team itself. While Bevo certainly set the tone before the game, it was evident from early on in the game that Texas had come in confident and prepared to slug it out with Georgia. They were playing fast and flying around and looked like the Tom Herman coached teams that we’ve become accustomed to seeing in big games. It was refreshing and fun to watch this team play the role of giant killer, as they proved to those around the country that they are heading in the right direction. Herman and his staff have certainly righted the ship and they have a chance to really make some noise in 2019. With that all said here are my takeaways from the Texas sized takedown of the Bulldogs. Sam Ehlinger’s Rise To Stardom Continues I’ve written about Ehlinger’s progression as a player this year several times over now. Ehlinger went from a reckless freshman trying to make every play in year one to an All- Big 12 caliber quarterback who will certainly be in the Heisman conversation going into the 2019 season. Last night wasn’t Ehlinger’s best performance, but as usual he provided a steady hand for the offense, played turnover free football, and put together a gritty performance against one of the nation’s best defenses. Ehlinger went on to tie the Sugar Bowl record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback on the way to earning MVP honors for the game and on top of that almost brought the house down with his now famous quote during the trophy presentation. Have a night, young man. Ehlinger has never lacked confidence or swagger, but walking into house that Drew Brees built rocking a Brees Westlake throwback was a total boss move and on top of that he delivered the win. On the year, Ehlinger tallied just over 3800 yards of total offense and accounted for 41 touchdowns. Texas fans get to enjoy him for two more years. Big 12 Defense > SEC Defense Remember all that talk about how the Big 12 didn’t play defense? Well the Texas defense showed up to the Superdome like they were sick of all that talk, because they brought the hard hats to the yard and went to work. Todd Orlando’s bunch came out flying around the yard and laying the wood to anything in red and white and it was a lot of fun to watch. Georgia has a ground and pound offensive identity that they like to use to wear down defenses, but their vaunted rushing attack only produced 72 yards on 30 carries, which was good for a meager 2.4 YPC. On top of that, the Texas defense forced two turnovers and almost got a third on another fumble, which left the Longhorns at +2 in the turnover margin for the evening. Texas was able to generate pressure on Jake Fromm for most of the night and BJ Foster laid a hit on him that most certainly landed Fromm in an ice bath after the game. This entire group deserves a game ball for showing up with their big boy britches on and winning a scrap that many people didn’t give them chance to win. Tre Watson Will Be Missed In 2019 Convincing Watson to come to Austin over Lubbock and Baton Rouge ended up being one of the most underrated recruiting victories for the Longhorn staff. In a game where running room was at a premium, Watson came out as the leading rusher at 91 yards on 18 carries (5.1 YPC) and despite being a smaller back he was consistently finishing his runs and dishing out some punishment on the back end. Finding a back with his skillset that could provide a veteran presence this year was very important given that Keaontay Ingram was banged up for a good portion of the year and couldn’t shoulder a full load of carries. Watson made the most of his touches last night in NOLA and his success brought some balance to the Texas offense and kept the Georgia defense from omitting the Texas run game and making life harder on Ehlinger on his drop backs. The issue of Texas being thin at running back has already been discussed in length here, so it will be interesting to see how the staff goes about replacing Watson’s production. Quiet Night For Texas’ Dynamic Duo At WR Collin Johnson and Lil’Jordan Humphrey absolutely terrorized defenses all year long, but last night was one of the quieter nights for the duo that I can remember. While they both made some key plays that prolonged drives or eventually led to points, they were held in check for most of the evening. Johnson in particular seemed invisible early on in the matchup before he finally made a nice catch up the sideline for a 35 yard gain. Johnson ended the night with 3 catches for 40 yards, but he did convert Texas’ lone two point conversion on a back shoulder fade late in the game. Humphrey on the other hand was the Longhorns’ leading receiver in the contest (7 catches, 67 yards) and he also completed his only pass attempt for 8 yards. I figured with Deandre Baker out that these two would have been a little more busy last night, but the Georgia defense fared pretty well against them all things considered. With this game in the books, now we wait and see if Johnson will opt to return to school or decide to take their talents to the NFL. No Sterns, No Problem With Caden Sterns hobbled coming into this game, Texas was down one freshman All-American and forced to do some juggling on the back end of the defense. Even with The Wolf on the sidelines, Texas was more than fine due to the performances of guys like BJ Foster and PJ Locke, who ended up playing bigger roles in Sterns’ absence. It was refreshing to see Locke play well and come up with a big turnover given his well-documented struggles over the past two seasons and Foster absolutely looked the part of the five star recruit the networks pegged him as. Foster’s hit on Fromm late in the contest was one of the plays of the night, as he got a free run off the edge on a blitz and laid a hard, clean hit on the quarterback. While Texas will have to replace both starting corners in Kris Boyd and Devante Davis, the Longhorns are absolutely stacked at safety with Brandon Jones likely returning and the Foster/Sterns combo being underclassmen. The future is bright on the back end of the defense and I know the staff has to be giddy about how this group is shaping up going into 2019.

    5 Thoughts: Sugar Bowl Edition

    Excellent writeup Seahorn. In addition to those GA rushing stats-- 72 yards on 30 carries -- T.O.P. was Horns 35:00 to GA 25:00. How's that for exact minutes. Seldom see that. Horns passing yardage was 177 to GA's 224, but try this: Comp-Att for Horns was 20-28. And 2-2 on 4th down efficiency, with 9-19 3rd down. That's a lot of 3rd downs for the night. Not counting punts (guess this is how it works on the Team Stats sheet) Horns show 77 plays -- 28 passing, 49!! rushing! GA shows 65 plays -- 35 passing, just 30 rushing. This performance out of Texas, who hasn't had 10 wins in almost 10 years, against recent upstart powerhouse Georgia throws a huge wrench in the SEC-SEC hype, and/or says a lot about Herman and his coaching style. Get this also: The mighty SEC was 6-5 in their bowl games. About what it was last year. Either they have no umph for bowl games, or they really are not that strong overall playing outside their conference. Take Alabama's win out, and it's .500, which what I recall it was last year. As I showed in a previous thread, the top 5 finishers in each SEC division played 40 Non-conf. games. 9 of the 40 games were against Power 5 conference. Only 4 of the 40 were played on the road. 6 of these top finishers (again, top 5 in each div) played 8 home games. The other 4 of those programs played 7, with Aggie playing Ark at Arlington. Regular season ranking placed 8 SEC teams in the Top 25. Based on what? They mostly play each other and, on average, play 8 home games. They also play a cup cake one of the last two weeks of the season, thereby avoiding a late season loss (how can they.. when nearly all 14 SEC teams play outside the conference, and I think all are indeed cupcakes). So they end the regular season with lofty rankings overall -- 2/3 of the conf in Top 25. But then come the bowls. Bowl losses to: Virginia, Iowa, Okla-State, Texas, Baylor. Beating: NC-State, Purdue, with quality wins over OU, Penn State, UCF, Michigan (if that's a quality win). Factor in, of course, one team and one of those wins, is en route to the title game. However, Texas pushed Georgia around much more than did Bama (going aggie there). For Texas to even come close to this game performance... I mean it was over at 28-7 (true representation of the beat down); Georgia looking no better than Iowa State as a product on the field. If that. Thing I noticed about Georgia, they did not look athletic. Okay, going full-on aggie there. How did BigXII do in their bowl games against the SEC? 3-1, including besting a 14-pt underdog spread in NO. Overall BigXII was 5-3 in bowls.

    I don’t live in Huntsville, but I am very involved with the high school. I have worked on an academic level Tee. I really respect him as a person. The day he committed, he brought Corby Meekins by to see me, and told me about his commitment. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to steal his moment. He is everything you could want in an athlete, a real team player and leader. Hook ‘em!

    Update on the #Bruuuuumors

    As you can probably tell by now I was very hesitant to discuss this, but with things looking like they are leaking out I’ll share what I can on the latest #Bruuuuumors. Texas finished runner-up in the Bru McCoy sweepstakes earlier this month, and came very close to reeling in the 5-star ATH from SoCal. The hiring of Kliff Kingsbury at USC solidified McCoy staying home, but once the NFL came calling that added another layer to the story. There was talk that McCoy would consider a transfer if Kingsbury bolted, but even after Arizona made his hire final things were quiet. That was until today. Earlier today we received a tip that McCoy was looking to finalize his intentions to enter the transfer portal. I wanted to dismiss it since it still seemed like a wild rumor, but after cross checking that (b)rumor in fact had legs. With things like this being sensitive and so incredibly fluid we didn’t want to hastily post something and get the board’s hopes up. So where do things now? Well as things sit McCoy is still enrolled at USC, so there hasn’t been any movement just yet. Discussions were had today, but no official decision has been made. So right now we are in wait and see mode like everyone else. If things do indeed progress... we will go from there. But until McCoy’s name enters the portal Texas can’t contact him and not much else can be said at this time.

    View from the Cheap Seats-Dawgs How SWEET it is . . . ..(see what we did there sweet. . .sugar bowl) One word to describe this win? PHYSICAL #2 in the BigXII vs #2 in the SEC. The entire Horn team, including Bevo showed up ready to play. Bevo took offense pre-game to Uga, the yapping Georgia mascot and went after him, setting the tone for the rest of the evening. TEXAS came out and kicked the shit out of the Dawgs for 59 minutes. No clue what happened in the last 46 seconds (2 ejections, 3 penalties and gave up a TD when the D was wandering around lost and the coaches couldn't figure out a time out was needed), Coach Todd and his guys seeming lost their shit but for 59 minutes, the TEXAS D made a YUGE YUGE statement. Dawgs came in rushing for 251 yards a game, TEXAS/Coach Todd's crew held them to 72 yards. Was great listening to Kirby Smart post game saying "give credit to Tom, they out physical led us, they out coached us" You could not have drawn it up better. #1 thing TEXAS needed to do was take an early lead and force Georgia to throw. Georgia is 0-3 this year in games where Fromm threw 24 times or more. Coach Todd and the TEXAS D harassed Jake Fromm at every turn. One of the early notes made was that TEXAS was out coaching Georgia and clearly in Smart and Fromm's heads. TEXAS took the Dawgs completely out of their game. Georgia entered the game #4 in the FBS with 7.3 yards per play but would only yield 4.4 vs the Horns. TEXAS balled out. 10 wins for the 1st time since 2009. 1st "Major bowl win" since 2008 Fiesta Bowl. CTH now 2-0 in bowl games at TEXAS. CTH and TEXAS finishes the season on a serious high note after (to quote CTH) the loss in Dallas left a serious bad taste in the mouth of the Horns. Does this win push TEXAS into the Top 10? Not sure but they will be moving up from #15 and likely open next year Top 10. Sadly despite kicking the crap out of Georgia, they likely do not climb over the Dawgs in the standings. Make no mistake, TEXAS lined up against a more talented team, a more accomplished team and TEXAS played harder, out hustled and out wanted the Dawgs from Georgia. Football is an angry and emotional game. TEXAS simply wanted it more tonight. Both the staff and the players played to win. Twice CTH went for it on 4th down, the results, 1 1st down, 1 Touch down. In fact the only real "questionable" move was the on sides kick to open the 2nd half. Gotta give it up for the Seniors, they played like it was their last game. No guys pussing out to get ready for the NFL draft. Charles Ominahu, Tre Watson, Anthony Wheeler, Gary Johnson, Davante Davis, PJ Locke, Kris Boyd, Chris Nelson,Patrick Vahe, Calvin Anderson, Brecklyn Hager. tip of the cap to these young men. Who would have imagined TEXAS playing for the Big XII title and winning the Sugar Bowl after the Tulsa game where face it, most fans were questioning whether CTH had the "right stuff". 7 times TEXAS would face ranked teams this year, twice Top 5 teams. TEXAS would go 5-2 vs the ranked team and 1-1 vs the top 5. Let's go "big picture" for a second. BigXII would face SEC teams 4 times in the bowl post season posting a 3-1 record. It was pretty funny listening to the fans at the game chant "over rated over rated". We will admit, despite the Horns leading wire to wire, the announcers could not stop slobbering over the Dawgs, simply annoying as hell. Bittersweet typing this tonight. Last Cheap Seats for more than 8 months. This is truly a labor of love. Thanks to our small but demented following. Offensive Player of the Game: Duh, Sam E, 3 TDs, Sam is the Man. Honorable Mention to Tre Watson who balled out for 5.1 a carry and ran hard every time he carried the rock. Lil Jordan not far behind. Defensive Player of the Game BJ Foster with some huge hits tonight including creating a fumble. Honorable mention: PJ Locke with an INT to snuff out a Dawg Drive. Where do we go from here? Future is bright. Step #1 is to use this high profile win to wrap up a 2nd straight Top 10 class. TEXAS can still use a RB, an OL (or 2 depending whether you count Shepard as a commit or a target) and another DL plus a wild card. A grad transfer or 2 would not hurt our feelings. As the All American games go on, it's seems the players we landed are showing well for themselves. The defense will see the biggest turnover this spring as we lose 7 starters including all 3 DLs, 2 LBs and both CBs. Does Brandon Jones try to grab the brass ring or does he come back as TEXAS best secondary player. On offense, the TEXAS fan base will be on pins and needles seeing if Collin Johnson and/or Lil Jordan jump to the pros. Depth at RB is a concern and TEXAS will need to find a TE though there are plenty of good options. Biggest offensive issue will be replacing 3 starting OL. Good news, TEXAS also returns 2 starters and one player in Kersetter who has extensive starting experience. Biggest challenge for CTH will be managing success and inflated expectations for the coming year. TEXAS will start the year ranked in the Top 10 most likely and will at least be a co-favorite to win the BigXII. TEXAS' 2nd game in 2019 will be in Austin vs LSU. Should be very interesting.

    Brainiacs today confirming some things I've recently heard. Namely – the development of Malcom Epps. Their source said Epps could eclipse LJH and Collin both. Colin on one side and Epps on the other is going to present some problems. Said he was just as much of a red zone threat as Collin is, right now. – The positive news on Whittington was echoed there. Kid is not playing like a freshman. – D'Shawn Jamison is making it hard to keep him off the 1's. He's been running with them off and on this week. – Bru McCoy is turning heads. He had 8 catches and 2 TDs in today's scrimmage.

    I'll give a break down based on what I've heard. Milton did not feel he got enough of Texas so he stayed another day. His primary interests during the extra day was the academic side and campus. First day was great, but everything was mapped out with little academic input. It was an unofficial, after all. I was told we believe we made a lasting impression on Milton and staff expects him to return for an OV. I was told that most thought Milton didn't expect to like UT as much as he did.

    Spoke to my buddy in Austin. – Sam's fine. Was a little stiff Sunday but was fine today. – Coaches are concerned game will be taken too lightly, so they're pushing on the gas a little this week. KU isn't a bad team. – Jones and Hookfin are going to be Horns. He did not say which was about to pop. Couldn't get him to understand my sentence, the bar was loud. lol – He would not elaborate, but said staff's confidence in the Bru McCoy recruitment has increased this week. They don't see a big name out there who will make a move this early so they don't think the situation will have time to resolve itself. Staff calls or texts him almost daily. – I asked about DT recruiting. They're still exploring the JUCO ranks. Don't see a lot to choose from otherwise. If that doesn't work, they'll look at a GT but honestly, they aren't so worried. They talk about Sweat like he's the next big thing in the middle. – He spent some time talking about the Herman-CDC relationship. Said it could not be better. CDC is doing things that Herman loves. The Journey thing was just a small touch and just the beginning. CDC is looking to max the "fun" in the game experience. I'm really liking CDC. – Things still look good with Noah Cain. Sanders continues to show us the love, but we don't have a real good read on him right now.

    Recruiting has been in a bit of a holding pattern for Texas and that has made many fans a bit anxious as we head into the summer months, but good things come to those who wait. Last week was chaotic to put it mildly with Bru McCoy departing the program and heading back west and Zach Evans leaving Texas outside his top five schools (and his commentary that followed. Needless to say, Texas fans needed something to get the good vibes flowing again and that is where Duncanville’s Ja’Quinden Jackson comes in. Jackson has long been a high priority target for the Longhorn staff and that hasn’t changed even with his desire to move forward as a quarterback despite already having Hudson Card in the class. Jackson is a caliber of player you simply figure a way to get him into your class because he is that talented and also offers you some flexibility down the line. The Texas staff has recruited him like the blue-chip talent that he is and now their efforts have been rewarded, as Jackson has announced he is bringing his talents to Austin to be a Longhorn. Film Analysis Player Information Name: Ja’Quinden Jackson Position: ATH (QB/LB) High School: Duncanville City & State: Duncanville, TX Measurables Height: 6’2 Weight: 219 40-yard time: 4.61 Shuttle: N/A Statistics 2017: 35/55 (60%) passing, 320 yards, 4 TDs/ 0 INTs – 93 carries, 766 yards (8.2 YPC), 12 TDs – 18 recs, 334 yards (18.5 YPC), 2 TDs 2018: 110/173 (63%) passing, 1550 yards, 15 TDs/ 3 INTs – 147 carries, 1497 yards (10.1 YPC), 23 TDs Film https://www.hudl.com/profile/7591645/JaQuinden-Jackson/videos Three Best Traits: Competitive Toughness – He’s one bad hombre in between the white lines and he brings it down to down. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking no matter the opponent and has shined on the biggest stages. Physical Measurables – Possesses a stout and sturdy frame at 6’2, 219 and it shows up on tape as a runner. Tough runner and breaks a good amount tackles and really wears on a defense. Also possesses good arm strength and can push the ball down the field. Patience/ Vision – Does a great job of allowing his blocks to develop and finding the creases in the defense as a runner. Manipulates defenders with his movements in the open field and is very elusive for his size. Three Worst Traits: Raw Passing Ability – Has a lot of development ahead of him as a passer. A lot of short comfort throws on tape and needs to grow more comfortable going through his progressions. Has the arm to push the ball down the field and had an absolute dime moving to right during the playoff run last year, but I need to see more of that going forward. Positional Ambiguity – Is he a quarterback? Is he a linebacker? Is he an H-Back/Tight end? There’s no doubt that he’s a baller, but he currently lacks a clean projection, so there will need to be a plan in place for when he hits campus to figure this out. Mileage on The Tires – Given that the offense flows through him and his legs, he logs a good amount of carries, which exposes him to a lot of hits. There is no doubting his toughness, but with more of the same on the way in the fall it is something to be mindful of. Summary Ja’Quinden Jackson is a four-star dual-threat quarterback from Duncanville HS in Duncanville, TX. Jackson is a soon to be three-year starter that has split time between quarterback and wide receiver. At 6’2, 219 pounds Jackson possesses good size and a good, sturdy frame that will continue to allow him to add on good weight regardless of which position he ends up at developing at in the long run. As a quarterback, Jackson is still a work in progress, but he possesses some nice raw tools to work with going forward. For starters, Jackson possesses a good strong arm that will allow him to push the ball vertically down the field that defenses will have to respect as he continues to refine his game. He shows that he can make throws on the move whether it be to his left or to his right and had a really nice throw that stood out on tape where he threw to a spot in the back of the end zone while scrambling left for a touchdown. Jackson stands tall and the pocket while looking going through reads and doesn’t get flustered when the pocket starts collapsing and does a great job of using his feet to buy time for himself. His greatest strength by far is his ability to hurt a defense with his feet via the quarterback run game or when he flees the pocket. Jackson proves on tape he can pound the rock in between tackles, as Duncanville runs a lot of power read and quarterback counter. Jackson’s toughness and competitiveness flashes constantly as a runner as he embraces contact with defenders and is not at all averse to trying to drop the shoulder on you when the opportunity presents itself. It often takes more than one defender to bring Jackson down despite being a pretty big guy, he is also pretty elusive and shows good COD in the open field. You would think a big target like Jackson would be easy to hit, but he consistently makes defenders look foolish and to boot he has good straight-line speed that allows him to split a defense if he finds a crease. Jackson’s playmaking ability as a runner could get him onto the field early in his collegiate career in some specialty packages his coaching staff opts to get creative along the lines of the 18-Wheeler package that featured Tyrone Swoopes or like how Blake Bell was used at Oklahoma or Tim Tebow early at Florida. With all that said, Jackson’s development as a passer will have to come a long way if he wants to become more than just a one trick pony. On tape he shows a lot of easy completions on short routes and some low risk throws to open receivers, but those windows will be much tighter, and defenses will be able to take those away at the next level. Jackson’s development in this area will determine how the ceiling goes for him as a prospect if he decides quarterback is where his long-term future is. He’s without a doubt an alpha and a playmaker that makes plays under the brightest of lights against tough competition and that won’t be questioned, which is why you want a player like this on your roster regardless of position. Final Verdict Jackson is easily one of the best football players in the state and the country regardless of position. He is a dude who is a flat-out playmaker and when the stakes are at their highest, he is going to show up and try to will his team to victory. You can go back and watch just about any game on high cutups and you will see number three out there bringing it from snap to snap. As long as Jackson is on the field, you know you are going to have a dog out there and guys like him are always fun to breakdown and study. The only question is where he will end up long term from a position standpoint, and right now I’m not sure the staff is too worried because that stuff often takes care of itself when the player gets to campus and starts putting the work in. Jackson is just a football player and he makes your team better the moment he is able to put a helmet and a jersey on in Austin.

    BY: Harrison Wier Let’s try this again, shall we? Bru McCoy committed to USC at the Army All-America Game, signed his letter or intent and then enrolled shortly after. About a week, after McCoy enrollee, then USC offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury left to take the head coaching job with the Arizona Cardinals. Ultimately, Kingsbury’s departure along with some other factors led McCoy to enter his name into the NCAA Transfer Portal. And as they say, “the rest was history.” McCoy’s recruitment was always pretty straightforward. He was always destined to go to USC. Mater Dei has become a USC pipeline in recent years, with some of McCoy's teammates like JT Daniels and Amon-Ra St. Brown heading to the Trojans. Texas quietly entered the picture for McCoy and slowly began to shift momentum its way. With a great season under its belt and USC clearly being far from stable, McCoy was intrigued by the prospects of playing in Austin. At the All-American Bowl however, McCoy decided to go to Los Angeles. But Tom Herman won the battle, as McCoy found his way to Austin as a Longhorn. Thanks, Transfer Portal! McCoy is the No. 1 rated athlete in the nation, and the No. 4 prospect overall. This is the biggest get for Texas since Vince Young, rankings wise. Let's analyze how McCoy will fit on the 40 acres: *I analyzed McCoy as a WR because that is the position he will likely excel at in college. If he does indeed play some OLB, we will do a separate analysis* Player Information Name: Bru McCoy Position: ATH High School: Mater Dei City & State: Santa Ana, CA Measurables Height: 6’2.5 Weight: 212 40-yard: 4.62 Shuttle: 4.22 Vertical: 37.9" Statistics 2017: 46 Rec, 770 Yds, 11 TDs, 23 Tckl, 3 TFL, 2 Sacks 2018: 71 Rec, 1312 Yds, 13 TDs Film Bru McCoy Film Pros: The first thing that stood out is McCoy's excellent footwork. He is a solid route runner, which will translate well to college. Excellent hands. Hardly ever uses his body to catch the ball. Great vision with the ball in his hands. Excels at getting yards after first contact. Can high point the ball when needed. Uses his size well against smaller DBs. Excels at multiple positions. Can be utilized in the slot or on the outside and have the same positive impact. Not afraid of contact. Demonstrated he can be physical in the run game as a blocker and pancaked several defenders. Cons: Sometimes is a little bit slow to get off the ball at the line of scrimmage, but makes up for it with his speed. Not enough film showing McCoy's ability on a diversity of routes. He mainly ran post routes and double moves at Mater Dei, but showed some ability on fade routes and bubble screens as well. Summary There is no other way to put it — Bru McCoy is an elite talent that can excel in the Texas system. McCoy has the ability to be a Lil'Jordan Humphrey type of player. He can be utilized outside, in the slot, or even in the backfield due to his physicality. McCoy will fight for playing time early on, especially if Humphrey decides to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. McCoy may not have the size advantage that Collin Johnson and Lil'Jordan Humphrey do, but his athleticism creates a unique nightmare for opposing defenders. McCoy has a rare skillset that contains elite hands and footwork along with fantastic vision with the ball in his hands. In the Texas offense, McCoy has the ability to shine. With his speed and athleticism, Tom Herman has tons of different options at his discretion when it comes to McCoy, including bubble screens, intermediate slants, post routes, double moves, and more. McCoy has the ability to excel at all aspects of the Texas system, but it may take him some type to get familiar with the playbook. Nevertheless, we expect McCoy to show why he is the No. 1 athlete in the country for the 2019 class and make an immediate impact upon his arrival at Texas. Final Verdict This recruitment had some twists and turns, but ultimately the majority of those covering both USC and Texas football felt that McCoy would be a Trojan when all was said and done. With the Mater Dei connection to the Trojans as well as McCoy's parents indicating a preference for him to stay close to home, Los Angeles seemed like the likely destination for the 5-star. However, McCoy decided that a change of scenery would be nice, and Austin would be the perfect fit. There is no way to put into words how big of a victory this is for Tom Herman. With questions surrounding the stability of the USC program and whether or not new OC Kliff Kingsbury would stick around or bolt for the NFL, Herman took advantage and pulled off a last-minute upset. McCoy will compete for playing time immediately, and by the time his tenure at Texas ends, he has the potential to be one of the best players Texas fans have seen in burnt orange in years.

    BY DANIEL SEAHORN Early on in the last recruiting cycle, we discussed the probability of Texas landing a monster offensive line class that consisted of some of the top prospects in the state of Texas. You all probably remember the picture of guys like Branson Bragg, Kenyon Green, Tyler Johnson, and Javonne Shepherd all together with Coach Herb Hand when they made their way to Austin early in the cycle. As you know by now, that dream haul didn’t quite come together, as Green pledged to Texas A&M, Bragg continued to the Stanford curse, and we are still dealing with the Shepherd saga heading into NSD2. While things didn’t come together for Texas along the offensive line like they would have hoped in the 2019 class, things may already be coming together for them in the 2020 class. They already have a four-star in the boat in form of Logan Parr, and the staff has been hard at work on Chad Lindberg, Damieon George, Jaylen Garth, and Jake Majors. Stanford once again has played a big factor for Lindberg and Majors, and I’m sure that Texas fans are tired of seeing the Cardinal steal big-time prospects from the Lone Star State. Landing those two would send the message all the way to Palo Alto that this aggression will not stand, man. Lindberg is set to take official visits later this spring, but Majors’ timeline was a bit unknown — until now. I’ve mentioned previously that the staff was being more aggressive this time around, and even with that I may have undersold how aggressive they were getting. Coming into this weekend I didn’t think they would press for a commitment, and I was dead wrong. Majors went from a perceived Stanford lean to a Longhorn commitment, and the Longhorn staff was able to put a big notch in their belt by keeping the master technician home. Player Information Name: Jake Majors Position: OT, OG, OC High School: Prosper City & State: Prosper, TX Measurables Height: 6’4 Weight: 280 40-yard: N/A Shuttle: N/A Vertical: N/A Statistics No statistics available. Film Jake Majors Film Pros: At 6’4, 280 pounds Majors already possesses good size and will put on more good weight once he hits a college weight room. Very technically advanced for a player at the position at this point in his development. Possesses good feet and moves very well laterally. Shows good quickness and moves fluidly when climbing to the second level on blocks. Shows great patience in pass protection and does a great job of mirroring pass rushers. Also, already shows some counters to power rushes on tape. Shows very good awareness when it comes to tracking and picking up twists, stunts, and blitzes. Almost never see him get off balance and is always under control even after engaging with defenders. Possesses a good punch and can really shock a defender off and knock them off balance. Very smart player and always seems to put himself in the proper place to execute his assignment. Moves with urgency as a puller and will likely be a big asset in that regard at the next level. Moves well in space and does a good job of tracking his assignment. Shows good aggression and does a good job of finishing defenders off. Cons: I have questions about his length and think it could give him some issues. While he could probably play it in a pinch, I don’t think he sticks at tackle at the next level. Have questions about how well he is able to anchor against legit power rushers. Summary Jake Majors is a 2-year (and soon to be 3-year) starter at offensive tackle for Prosper (TX) high school. Majors is a composite 3-star prospect across the networks as things sit today, but I’d be willing to wager that he will be significantly bumped up once evaluators actually dig into the film and undo their wrongs. There is a lot of positive to discuss when it comes to Majors’ game and for an offensive lineman at this stage in the development, that is pretty unique. At 6’4, 280 pounds, Majors already possesses good size and will continue to fill out going forward once he hits a college S&C program. While I have questions about his overall length and ability to stick at tackle, he can probably play it in a pinch and projects to be a very good interior player at either guard or center. Majors is a close to a master technician as you are going to see for a young offensive lineman. He takes good, efficient steps, plays with good pad level, and takes good angles to execute his assignments and blocks. Majors displays very good agility quickness both laterally and vertically when it comes to executing double teams and climbing to the second level. He consistently gets movement on the down linemen and gets his body in the right place to pick up the linebackers and doesn’t get off balance in the process. Majors does a good job of controlling and steering players whenever he gets engaged with them and shows the aggression you like to see from players at the position. If Majors gets the chance to finish you he’s going to do it, and it will bring joy to the heart of every coach that turns his tape on. Majors’ great technique also shows up in his pass protection. He’s incredibly patient and does a great job of mirroring rushers and already displays some counters to power rushes. Majors shows great awareness and recognition of stunts, twists, and blitzes and always seems to have himself in the right place at the right time. While I do have some questions about his ability to anchor, that comes more from the place of him not playing against better rushers. Majors’ tape was a joy to work through and he is going to be a great player wherever he ends up. You don’t see many this far along technically at this stage in development, so it was both fun and refreshing to see a player working diligently at honing their craft. Final Verdict It’s hard to understate how big of win this for Texas kicking off the 2020 recruiting cycle. The staff lands in my mind an elite offensive line prospect in Majors, and at the time finally lands a body blow to Stanford, who has been making a living at pulling elite offensive prospects from Texas over the past few cycles. Landing Majors now gives Texas two great building blocks along the offensive line with Parr already committed, which gives them more ammo as they continue to press for Lindberg, Garth, and George going forward. Parr has already gone on the record about how close he is with some of the players I just mentioned, and that could go a long way with eventually securing their commitments down the line. And If you want to go even further down that rabbit hole, securing an elite group like that could eventually go a long way with making significant progress with a guy like Zach Evans. For now, Texas fans should enjoy and celebrate accordingly because this a fantastic pickup and Majors is a guy I think could make his way into the two deep early after enrolling in the spring next year.

    After the slow start that Texas had to the 2019 class, Tom Herman knew it was imperative to get a jump on a key number of prospects in 2020. With that, Elite Day was born. Texas did an excellent job of getting a number of key 2020 prospects into Austin before its annual Junior Day in February. Herman and Co. did a great job with a number of recruits and put themselves in a great position moving forward. Here are some various visitors and our confidence levels: Chad Lindberg - OL, Clear Creek (High) Texas has really separated themselves as of now for Lindberg's services. He loves Austin and has a brother that attends Texas, which doesn't hurt. If Lindberg sticks to his timeline of taking spring officials and making a summer decision, we like Texas' chances. Of course, Texas is going to have to stave off Stanford, and Lindberg has expressed interest in playing with Zach Evans at the next level. For now, Texas is in a great position. Keep in mind that Stanford always makes things interesting for prospects of Lindberg's caliber, so things could change quickly if Lindberg visits Stanford and enjoys his time there. Vernon Broughton - DL, Cy Ridge (Med-High) Broughton is a must-get in this class, and Texas is prioritizing him as such. You probably saw the picture of Broughton and his dad in Texas uniform on Twitter. Broughton's dad is a mammoth, so it's not hard to see where Broughton gets his size from. This one is probably a little trickier because Alabama wants him and other schools are going to prioritize him as well. He hasn't set a timeline to my knowledge, but this one could have some twists and turns. For now, Texas is in a good spot. Zach Evans - RB, North Shore (Low-Med) I put the level as such because I don't even think it's worth mentioning Evans at this point. This recruitment is going to be a roller coaster, but it is worth mentioning because Evans found the time to come to Austin even when his brother could not take him. Texas remains in a good spot, but other schools like LSU, Clemson, and of course A&M are going to continue to push. Jase McClellan - RB, Aledo (Low-Med) There have been rumors that McClellan is looking around a bit, and the visit to Texas will only increase the magnitude of those rumors. McClellan has been a Sooner since 2017, which was a very early commitment for a 2020 prospect. Texas was obviously not pushing for 2020 prospects that early, so there really wasn't much competition with the Sooners. Tom Herman is turning up the heat now, and McClellan seemed to enjoy the visit to Austin. Texas is in the picture now. Look for the staff to keep pushing. Jake Majors - OL, Prosper (High) Majors has become a priority for the Texas staff, and if you've seen his film, you know why. The Prosper OL is extremely technically sound and projects well at the next level. His composite three-star rating is nowhere near where he is as a prospect, and that will probably be fixed once the 2020 rankings are updated. Texas is going to keep pushing for Majors, and have put themselves in a really good position. Bryson Washington - C.E. King, Safety (Medium) Washington reminds me a lot of Texas signee Tyler Owens. He's got a good frame, and carries elite speed/athleticism. Texas will be selective on who it takes at safety in this class due to the depth they already have, but Washington is a prime candidate. He likes Texas early, but other schools like Oklahoma, Alabama and Clemson are going to keep pushing. Texas positioned themselves nicely after this weekend. Jaylen Garth - OL, Port Neches-Groves (High) The former protector of Roschon Johnson made it into Austin this weekend alongside his former quarterback. Garth notched an LSU offer whilst on his visit to Texas, but waited until his visit was over to post the offer on social media. Garth immensely respects the Texas staff, and I think that little tidbit means something. Texas is going to continue pushing Garth, who could decide to pull the trigger early. He may decide to slow it down a bit if other schools like LSU come knocking. For now, Texas is in a prime position. Prince Dorbah - DL, Highland Park (Medium) Texas did some solid work getting Dorbah back on campus, but Oklahoma remains the main competitior. This one is still shaping up to be a Texas-Oklahoma battle, and it doesn't look like Dorbah is going to make a decision anytime soon. Texas will continue to work on Dorbah, and I would cautiously say they are the leader as of now. The staff needs to continue pushing, however. Right now Dorbah feels like a priority, and it will remain that way. Jaylon Jones - DB, Cibolo Steele (Med-High) You probably also noticed Jones this weekend after he posted a "DBU" edit on Twitter featuring the burnt orange. Elite Day had a really positive impact on Jones. Jones got to spend a ton of time with former Cibolo Steele DB Caden Sterns, which only helped the Longhorns' cause. Texas is looking good early, but other schools like Florida and A&M are going to combat the visit high. Texas is in a good position right now. Damieon George - OL, North Shore (Low-Med) George and Evans have consistently expressed the desire to play with each other in college, and that appears to be genuine. George doesn't say much about his recruitment, but it's definitely easy to assume the visit went well. George has a legitimate interest in leaving the state, and likes the appeal of the SEC early on. Alabama, LSU, and A&M are all schools in the Southeastern Conference that stand out to George, and Texas has some work to do to wear off the shine of the conference. The visit to Austin this weekend was a solid start. Kelvontay Dixon - ATH, Carthage (High) Keaontay's little brother took to Twitter to highlight his visit to Austin. Texas continues to solidify itself as the clear leader in this recruitment. Dixon is not a product of being Keaontay's little brother, either. Dixon is a legitimate prospect that carries some very intriguing qualities in an ATH take. Texas just needs to stay the course here.

    By the way.....does this mean we can all ease away from the ledge and put down the gas pipe? I never heard so much moaning and groaning over a very good class in my life. Could it have been better?....sure it could, but it could have been a lot worse too. Fact is we will not know how good or bad this class is for 2 years. From what I have seen in the last 2 classes, this staff has done a damned good job of evaluation so far. Who did we think was a good get that didnt work out? It seems to me ( just from what I hear as we still dont know for sure) that for the first time in a looong time, the kids that we redshirted are going to be a big help.....you know....like it is supposed to work. I think the train is on the right track and is starting to roll.

    ***Early Signing Day Thread***

    All in all, this is a very good class . . . considering . . . . considering we came off a season that wasn't so good, had an offense that stunk, etc., and recruited like a team that was coming off a 10-win season. We have some special athletes in this class. Chris Adimora might be the steal of the class and reminds me of BJ Foster. I have a friend who pays much closer attention to this stuff than I do – and he compares Degabriel Floyd to Malik Jefferson, says DGF is a better true LB. We finally have a top tier TE. Welcome Mr Liebrock. Folks think we whiffed at DL but T'Vondre Sweat will be an All American at DT before he's done at UT. He reminds me of Casey Hampton. A 6'2 corner with speed and quicks, thats Kenyatta Watson. Jake Smith and Jordan Whittington are Swiss army knives, players who can do so many different things. You hope to get one player like this, but we got two. Both are special. I could go on and on, you get the picture. We have much to smile about today. And TH says there may be one or two more coming.

    Five Thoughts: Iowa State

    Even without Sam Ehlinger in the second half of Saturday night's matchup with Iowa State, the Longhorns dominated the Cyclones all night and came away with a 24-10 victory. Todd Orlando and his defensive unit stepped up in a big way by limiting David Montgomery to 33 yards rushing and making Brock Purdy look like a freshman. The health of Sam Ehlinger looms large as Texas is set to have a short week and travel to Kansas. The good news is that Ehlinger warmed up on the sideline and was really in Tom Herman's ear about coming into the game. For now, here are five thoughts about the Longhorns' big win: Shane Buechele is selfless and serviceable After losing the starting job to Sam Ehlinger in the offseason, Shane Buechele could have easily exercised his option to transfer like so many other quarterbacks have in the past. Instead, the junior took on a mentor role with Ehlinger and remained ready to be called on. When Buechele's number was called against Baylor and tonight, he's been more than serviceable at the position. There's no doubt that the offense is entirely different when Buechele is in the game. Opposing defenses do not respect Buechele's ability to run, and it certainly makes this offense more predictable. When that happens, the pressure is turned up on Buechele, who does not have the pocket awareness that Ehlinger has and often can't get away from pressure. All in all, Buechele is a very serviceable backup quarterback who could be a starter in a different offensive scheme. As Tom Herman put it best, "He's the definition of a teammate." Resurgence of the defense Something must have snapped in Todd Orlando this week, because the Texas defense played with its hair on fire tonight. Todd Orlando's unit reeled in 6 sacks, 9 TFL, 1 interception and 1 forced fumble. The defensive line played unbelievable, and asserted pressure on Brock Purdy all night. Gary Johnson was placed as a spy on Purdy all evening, and laid some solid hits on the freshman several times throughout the game. The statline may not show it, but Kris Boyd had a great game guarding Hakeem Butler. At times Boyd gave up some plays to the 6'6 junior, but that was to be expected. Boyd also made some fantastic plays that cut Iowa State drives short. One of the biggest performances came from the Texas LB corps. The rushing attack has been a huge weakness of Texas' this year, but this unit stuck to its assignments and really made Brock Purdy air it out. It certainly helped that David Montgomery was out for the first half, but he was only able to accumulate 33 yards rushing in the second half. As a team, the Texas defense only allowed 62 yards (!) rushing. You have to credit the Texas LBs for maintaining gap integrity and the defensive line for getting a constant push up front. This will undoubtedly give the defense confidence as they head into the final stretch of the season. One last win in DKR for the seniors This year's senior class has arguably been through more turmoil than any other in Texas history. Abrupt coaching changes in-season, constant regression, and an embarrassing loss to cap off a forgettable era were followed by the arrival of a new coach with a completely different attitude and style. It took a while, but the seniors finally bought in to his vision and saw results. They came to Texas with the goal of bringing the Longhorns back to where they should always be, and now they are ever so close to that achieving it. To Charles Omenihu, Breckyn Hager, Gary Johnson, PJ Locke, Davante Davis, Kris Boyd, Chris Nelson, Anthony Wheeler, Calvin Anderson, Patrick Vahe, Tre Watson, and countless others: thank you. All of you are shining examples of the types of players Texas wants to wear the burnt orange and white week in and out. The season is far from over, but just know the Longhorn faithful are glad you chose Texas and will forever be on your side. Closing out games As Tom Herman said best, "We've always got to make it interesting, huh?" You sure do, coach. Just as this game was all but wrapped up, Texas decided to give Iowa State some life. It started with a Ryan Bujcevski line drive punt to Tarique Milton that was taken back to the Texas 15-yard line, and then moved further up due to a Ryan Bujcevski facemask. Iowa State scored a couple of plays later, but failed to recover the onside kick. Okay, no problem, Texas fans thought. Then, instead of deciding to take a knee to run out the clock, Texas decided to give it to Daniel Young — a player who has been notorious for coughing the ball up. And guess what happened? Young fumbled, and Iowa State recovered. Thankfully, freshman pass rusher Joseph Ossai wanted to go home. Ossai got a step on the outside and strip sacked senior quarterback Kyle Kempt, which was recovered by senior Charles Omenihu to seal the game. This team always has to make it interesting, but a win is a win. This cannot happen in the future, as turnovers like that or missed field goals could end up being costly. One more win... And Texas will be heading to Dallas for its first Big 12 Championship appearance since 2009. Who would have thunk it after the Longhorns lost to Maryland to open the season and almost blew a lead against Tulsa at home? 8 regular season wins and a chance at 9 is a big improvement from 6 a season ago. All in all, there is no doubt that Tom Herman has this program heading in the right direction. It will be very interesting to see how Texas comes out against Kansas next Friday. Many of the seniors on this time know all too well what it feels like to lose in Lawrence with a lot on the line. This time, Texas has a Big 12 Championship appearance on the line and much more at stake. After putting up 40 points against Oklahoma today, it is safe to say that Kansas should not be taken lightly. It will be the Jayhawks Senior Day and the last time David Beaty will coach a game there. Emotions will be running high, and Texas must be ready. How ready they'll look will also depend on the health of Sam Ehlinger. Tom Herman announced after the game that Ehlinger has an AC contusion at the moment, with an MRI scheduled for tomorrow. A contusion is certainly not as severe as a sprain, but it's concerning to see Ehlinger take more hits on his throwing shoulder. One more win, Longhorn fans; the drought remains, but rain is in the forecast. We'll see if it comes down on Friday.

    I’m not trying to overextend myself here. But Texas just went 4-0 over their toughest stretch of schedule and is looking like they will contend for the Big 12. 10 wins are legit in play. Texas is right where it wants to be on the field and in recruiting. If this keeps up Texas will make a splash somewhere on the trail.

    Bored to tears here in the dead period . . . so I called my buddy down in ATX who didn't have much for me, but the little he had was nice to hear. Says we'll likely get another commit in two weeks coming at a need position (OL). Pointed to the SEC media predicting a 5th place finish for LSU. He said that recruits are starting to notice that some things aren't quite right at LSU. Said there is love being thrown Leal's way almost every single day. If we end up not winning him over, it won't be for a lack of effort. Said our athletes are experiencing transformations, due to the work Yancey puts them through. He said its quite noticeable and seems to inspire confidence in this team. Staff is turning over stones they ordinarily would not, searching for DL. You may see some new names soon.
