    2018 Recruiting Board/Thread

    I wanted to everyone to know, I took @Sirhornsalot post wrong and said some pretty childish and unwarranted towards him. I sent him an apology in PM but since I made my comments publicly I wanted everyone to know. I enjoy this board, its the only one I visit my longhorn news. SHA is a good guy and have known him on here for years. Its not an excuse for my comments, but I have been going through a tough time the last few months with family medical issues. Been burning the candle at both ends and believe me I dont have much wax left. Again not a an excuse for my behavior. Sorry for the shit show everyone! Hookem PS thanks for accepting my apology and your understanding SHA, much respect for you man

    2nd or 3rd hand info, so take it for what it's worth. Struck up a conversation with a woman at work last week. I've seen her around, but we work in separate areas. She introduced herself. Last name Ojomo. Jokingly I asked if she had family in Katy (I'm in the dfw area). She said that her husband does, but she doesn't know the extended family as they are recently married. I briefly mentioned why asked and that there was a kid being heavily recruited by the same last name, but never told her my affiliation to any school. Fast forward to today and I run into her in the parking lot. She tells me that her husband told her that he has a nephew who is a big boy and is going to be a longhorn!!! Hope she's right...

    Oh Aggy, Part Deux

    Daughter (Aggie vet school grad) thinks TAMU will never change until it gets rid of the Corps and all its faux "traditions". Son-in-law (Aggie vet school grad) thinks TAMU will never change until they get rid of the yell leaders and fish school. To be clear - daughter went to TAMU because they have the finest veterinarian school and son-in-law went to TAMU on a baseball scholarhip..and vet school. And both want to resume the rivalry with UT. Both think Dodds and bow tie were idiots. Neither are allowed to wear aggie swag in my home - including grandkids. That is my punishment for my daughter going to aggy. Told daughter she has been removed from my will, with the exception of a 12 year old, dumb as hell, sway-backed old Longhorn steer. Who farts when alarmed. Wife threatened to make my life hell if I removed daughter from will. Daughter still in will.

    I'm going to be out of pocket for the next day or so. My sister will be undergoing cancer removal surgery tomorrow morning. She's endured 7 chemo treatments and now they're ready to remove the dead cancer. That might sound simple, but she's also dealing with a pacemaker and defibulator, so there's some risk involved. For that reason, me and my family would welcome and appreciate any and all prayers. Thank you in advance!

    It’s not an excuse, man. The coach at Carthage wants his team locked in instead of planning an elaborate ceremony in the middle of a Prep week for the biggest game of the season. Ingram has offers from everyone (literally), committed early, and hasn’t been taking any visits throughout the year. That sound like a kid that isn’t solid? We haven’t been worried about Ingram since the day he committed and he’s earned the benefit of the doubt.

    2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

    Let me tell you a little about Tee Sweat. Aside from the fact that he is a really nice young man who was brought up properly and knows how to show respect to others, he is a hard worker. Yes, he is young to be a Junior; however, his behavior is normally superior to that of older athletes. He is conscientious. If he is scheduled to be someplace at a certain time, he will be there. He made up his own mind about committing to Texas. I suspect he was surrounded by subtle influences to commit to another school, but he made up his mind and announced. He is his own man. And, at least one other school is still calling him. He realizes it will probably continue until he signs. He is strong and fit, and it has come from hours in the gym. As I mentioned, he is a hard worker. When he committed to Texas, he had over 12 offers, but no one would have known it by his behavior. I heard it from another source. He absolutely deserved an offer. I wrote about qualities other than athletic, but I believe the Texas coaches are more than capable of evaluating that for themselves.

    Story by Daniel Seahorn Every year in recruiting, without fail, we see late bloomers burst onto the recruiting scene after being relatively quiet leading up to their senior season. Sometimes schools just completely overlook a kid, while other times kids have solid, but not spectacular junior campaigns before absolutely crushing it in their final year. In the case of Katy defensive tackle Moro Ojomo, he is much more of the latter. Ojomo had some solid FBS offers to his name prior to his senior year, but the big dogs didn’t really come calling until December when his senior film hit the internet at the conclusion of Katy’s playoff run. Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Texas A&M all came calling right before Christmas and the secret was officially out about the Katy nose tackle. Ojomo’s stock blowing up this late in the process insured that the competition for his signature would be competitive and he would no doubt take all five of his officials leading up to National Signing Day. Like we’ve seen several times this cycle, Tom Herman and his staff were not deterred by the competition and they were ready to put their hand on the line and compete. Early on it looked like A&M would have the leg up in this recruitment, but with the transition happening in College Station they didn’t even get a chance to step into the batter’s box to take a swing on an official visit. This recruitment shaped into a battle between bitter rivals Oklahoma and Texas and when it came down to it the Longhorns were able to keep him from heading north to Norman and secure his commitment. Player Information Name: Moro Ojomo Position: Defensive Tackle High School: Katy City & State: Katy, TX Year: 2018 Measurables Height: 6’3 Weight: 280 40-yard time: 5.0 Shuttle: N/A Film Pros: Ojomo is listed at 6’3, 280 pounds and already possesses an impressive physique. Has big, strong arms and he knows how to use them. If he gets those meat cleavers on he is able to do what he wants. Leaves no doubt that he possesses the functional strength necessary to play in the trenches. Has a good first step and up field burst off the LOS. Displays good lateral agility and quickness on stunts. Show the ability to win with his hands or by shear brute force. Eats double teams for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Shows consistent ability to split them and be disruptive. Flashes the ability to be a disruptive presence against the run and the pass. On top of being blessed physically, this kid gives great effort and plays to the whistle. Will only be 16 when he signs. Film looks fantastic and still has plenty of room to grow physically and technically. Cons: Fair or not, any player that comes out of Katy leaves with a “system player” stigma attached to them. Can he be more than just another good player to wear the red and white tiger logo? Is he scheme versatile? Spends majority of his snaps shading the center. May possess the ability, but I want to see it. If this kid pans out like I think he will, then he won’t be around very long. That’s both good and bad. Summary After Texas secured Keondre Coburn’s commitment last year, I figured they would close up shop on interior players they projected to nose and focus on guys who projected to 4i. That was until I laid these eyes on Moro Ojomo’s senior tape. To say I was impressed with what I saw would be putting it mildly. The senior tape was so good that I had to go back for a refresher on his junior tape to see if there were any signs of this breakout coming because I couldn’t believe that I had overlooked a guy playing this well and that more schools weren’t beating down his door. Ojomo is listed at 6’3, 280 pounds and if those measurables are close to being accurate I am absolutely giddy because he is built like a brick house (look up the picture of him on his Oklahoma visit if you haven’t seen it). Not only does Ojomo look the part, he also backs it up with his play. As a nose, he is required to take on countless double teams throughout the game and he absolutely dominates them on film. I lost count of how many times I saw him getting blatantly held by one or two offensive linemen, yet he still shed the block and made the play anyway. He possesses a good first step combined with good up field burst that when you combine with his natural strength is absolute hell to slow down as an interior offensive linemen. Ojomo not only moves well in a straight line, he also possesses good lateral agility and doesn’t waste a lot of motion when he is on the attack. This kid gets on you in a hurry, he sheds you with good technique or brute force, and then he proceeds to the ball carrier with a motor that consistently burns hot. If Texas wasn’t getting Coburn or somehow lost him late this cycle, I would be very content with Ojomo being the lone take because I think like him just as much if not more. Final Verdict If you couldn’t tell from the previous section, I’ m very bullish on this pickup by Texas. Aside from there being so much to like about his game on tape at this point in his development, it is also huge that he is only 16 and doesn’t turn 17 until later on this year when he will already be on campus. Ojomo is just now coming into his own as a football player and he still hasn’t even come close to hitting his ceiling yet. Personally, I might be as excited about Ojomo as any other player on the defensive side of the ball in this class, because I think he has the ability and potential to turn into a difference maker down the line at Texas. Getting Coburn in the boat was one thing, but getting a guy like Ojomo to pair with him is a grand slam and gives Texas two very disruptive interior linemen. Being able to identify and reel in players like Ojomo late in the cycle shows that the Texas staff is keeping their fingers on the pulse of players around the state and they showed once again that they are able to go toe to toe with big time programs when it comes to landing a recruit.

    Prayers

    Thank you, every one of you, for lifting my sister up in prayer. That means so much. I am very, very, very, very happy to say my sister came out of surgery today around 12:30 with the cancer removed. After an hour in recovery she was in her own room talking to me. Everything went exactly as planned by the surgeon, no complications or surprises. Cancer got its assed kicked today. I'll end by saying I am so proud of my sister. She's 5'4, 100 and nothing yet fights like a bar room brawler. Thanks again, you guys/gals are the best!

    Good points but I gotta say the criticism of Brown is starting to get old and petty. The man brought us a national championship and to new heights of wealth and class. In short, he made us a great program again. No he wasn't Saban, or even Meyer, but he was a badass nonetheless.

    Andrew Jones diagnosed with Leukemia

    As many of you know, I was dx’d with breast cancer in late July 2015. The worst moment is hearing the words: you have cancer. Then there are tests and uncertainty, which if very stressful. After that, in my experience, everything begins to improve. Of course, some days are better than others, but you are busy with treatment and getting healthy again. I believe that an athlete (or former athlete, in my case), handles the rigors of treatment better than most, due to the training they have had. Athletes learn to push through fatigue and cope with stress, positively. I think Andrew will do fine. He will have the support of his family, his team, and The University community. If you have never read Toughness Training for Life or Toughness Training for Sports, by James Loehr, I highly recommend both of them. Both books use the same principles, and a former Olympian told me that their team psychologist used many of the principles in the book for sports. Hook ‘em, Andrew. Stay as strong as we know you are. It may not seem like it now, but you will come out of this an even stronger person than you are now. All of the best wishes for a smooth recovery. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Just read that Angilau is leaning towards coming to school. He cited early playing time and that he could get involved with the missionary work in Austin. He would take he missionary trip later with his spouse

    Didnt post during the game wanted to watch us beat our first top 25 from start to finish. Couple of notes from this game: - Sam should be the guy but he still tends to make critical mistakes. USC and ou. Hopefully he matures out of those. - The refs are garbage as usual. Another mystery review over no flag. No facemask call on Hager either. - Hall and A. Davis are both better than Locke. - Why we run off right tackle is a mystery. Conner made our backs look all conference on the left Great win. now time to beat up some tortillas. BTW shame on all of you that picked the hillbillies to win.

    Andersen update

    Has anyone else noticed that Herm is addressing issues like no other UT coach that I've seen? OL went from depleted and questionable coaching to a nice depth/quality and a helluva instructor to go with it. Lack of recruiting momentum coming out of the dead period? Insert Carrington at the 10th on an interim and BOOM! – We're rolling again. We had issues at QB, no depth and very young. We've gone from two QBs to four QBs with the ability to shirt one and have a JR and SOPH with great experience. Depth on the DL? We're now going to finish with a nice haul there. I'm pretty tickled with what I'm seeing. Herm is getting it done. We're going to seriously be bad ass in a couple years.

    Westfield coaching staff can allow (or not) anyone they want to. Complaining on twitter just shows butt hurt. Texas has no say so over this. Thats just aggy wanting to blame Texas again. Westfield apparently has a rule that once a kid commits, that school's coaching staff is the only coaches allowed to see him on campus.

    5 Quick Thoughts: Texas vs. Missouri

    Good stuff, both of you! Sirhorsalot, I disagree about #9.... I loved it! I have endured bad efforts by Texas football for decades, which were made tougher to swallow because the other team humiliated us with the horns down, throat slash, etc.... Well, teams seem to take on the personality of the coach, and finally we have one who doesn’t want to take that garbage lying down! I think I saw Herman run to Orlando and another assistant, and let them know we were turning up the heat after his QB mock dance. I also liked the reverse with a couple minutes left and a ten point lead. I don’t think Herman appreciated Mizzu posing for photos with horns down at the Bowl luncheon (apparently some players didn’t either). i don’t think Herman liked the pregame horns down by 2 Mizzu players. I don’t think Herman appreciated the goofiest touchdown celebration I have ever seen by the Mizzu QB. And I appreciate a Texas coach not taking the passive path in this case.
